They should be able to display meticulous attention to detail, effective communication and project management skills and be able to competently manage a busy workload.

The salary range is £23,000-26,000 pro-rata; benefits include 36 days’ holiday pro-rata (including bank holidays) per annum and pension. Please apply via email with a full CV and a covering letter (noting where you saw this role advertised) to Rob Dale – [email protected]

EUP is an equal opportunities employer – we welcome and encourage candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds.
