What we offer:

  • Flexible Working: The role is for up to 21 hours a week, Monday to Friday, but we pride ourselves on our flexible approach to working arrangements and we’ll consider any alternatives that we think would work, in terms of helping us provide a responsive service. This can include some homeworking.
