You will be required to work in a flexible manner on a rota which includes evenings, weekends and sleep-ins. In addition to opportunities for personal and career development, we offer good conditions of service and a supportive, hands-on management culture.

Are you a caring person with an interest in supporting people to gain a greater quality of life?  Are you an organised and self-motivated person with the ability to lead? If so, we would love to hear from you.
