Flexible working patterns will be considered. We are happy to hear from qualified candidates who are interested in the role on a less than a full-time basis and would discuss with any such candidates how we could accommodate different working patterns.

It is anticipated that a hybrid working pattern can be adopted for this role, where the successful candidate can work from home and the office.
