Hours of work will be 3:30pm -6:30pm Monday to Thursday and 2.30pm – 5.30pm on Friday.  A degree of flexibility around the hours worked is desirable along with the ability to cover occasional ‘on call’ duties during evenings and weekends.

All staff we register will undertake thorough interviewing and referencing checks and hold, or be prepared to undergo, an Enhanced DBS check.
