The fine print
We would be delighted if you were able to join our team and will commit to giving you the training and support you need.

How you organize your time – either part-time or full-time – is up to you but we would like you to be able to commit to at least 2 days in the office per week. We understand you may have other commitments but unless you can commit to this, you will find it difficult to be fully integrated in our team.
