The starting salary for this position is 45,734 per annum based on a 36 hour working week. This role is open to remote working meaning you aren’t required in the office 5 days a week. We’re less worried/concerned about you driving to work and more about us collectively driving down our carbon footprint.

In support of the wellbeing of our staff and our greener futures strategies, we’d welcome a conversation with the successful candidate on what remote working may look like for you.
