Where you’ll do your job
You’ll initially work across North, Northwest and North East London, Hertfordshire and Essex. The great news is that you’ll have the flexibility of working either from home or in one of our local offices and we’ll give you the technology and kit to make that easy.
To meet the needs of our customers, we need to be flexible. This means you’ll work 5 days per week depending on the need of the business. You may also be asked to take part in our out of hours service.
