Training can be provided to any candidate who does not have relevant experience in any of the job functions or requires a refresher. This should be particularly helpful to those candidates who have currently, or previously, worked in specialist areas of the profession or are returning to work after a career break.

Any relevant experience would be an advantage, but consideration will also be given to candidates working towards their EHORB registration, who could potentially be taken on at Technical Officer grade until their qualification.

For this role we are seeking individuals who are committed to providing excellent customer care and to improving people’s lives and the local environment.
