You will also have an ability to both lone and team work and to initiate and maintain effective working relationships with colleagues, clients, the community, the police and other external agencies. The ability to speak an Eastern European language although not essential, would be advantageous.

In return, we offer a range of benefits including a pension scheme, staff discounts scheme and initiatives to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. We are also committed to providing our staff with a wide range of learning and development opportunities; in support of their personal and professional development.
