We want to speak to you if you have:
- A motivated and flexible approach to work (which will include lone working, shifts, split shifts, sleep in duties and where necessary waking night cover);
- Sound values and attitudes;
- The ability to work with people in a positive and supportive manner;
- A willingness to gain a relevant SVQ II qualification is essential; and
