This role will initially be recruited for on a 6-month fixed term contract, but with potential to convert into a permanent role once the contract is completed. Hybrid working can be offered, but the days in the office will need to mirror the Chair and will therefore, unlikely be the same days each week so flexibility will be needed. The core hours are 9 am – 5:30 pm, but flexibility will also be needed with the hours to ensure that the necessary work is completed.
