Your extensive knowledge, skills and experience will be rewarded with a highly competitive salary and sleep in allowance, as well as a generous annual leave allowance and continued training and development. Genuine career progression opportunities are also available within this market leading organisation.

For your support and commitment, you will paid a salary of £20,000 to £22,000 a year plus a SLEEP IN ALLOWANCE of £35.00 per sleep which can take your salary up by £4200 giving you a salary of between £22,696 to £24,444.
