We are looking for a creative individual with experience of working with partner agencies and relevant stakeholders to deliver high quality outcome-focused services. You will also have:

  • Experience of managing staff and volunteers in a fast paced environment; or the willingness to develop these skills.
  • The ability to effectively prioritise your own time and workload and come up with practical ideas to improve services.
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to build and maintain relationships with a variety of people.
  • Flexibility is necessary for this post, as you may be required to work from various locations, and work specific days of the week.

Above all, we are looking for someone committed to the overall aims of the service and working with a caring and person centred approach.
