You would join a highly experienced and motivated team in generic social work and would be offered good support and opportunities for professional development.

We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment and an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosure will be sought along with other relevant pre-employment checks.
