We want our consultants to embrace a brilliant work/life balance by offering flexible working shifts across the week, an early finish on a Friday and remote working at least once a week. We pride ourselves on having a grown up environment where you are supported to have the tools to do the role but will be given autonomy to work flexibly once competent. Furthermore our consultants can also take advantage of using dozy days by taking short notice holidays when they need.

And last but certainly not least we are a friendly, sociable bunch that loves going on team lunches, hosting lunchtime ping pong competitions and having company nights out on a regular basis…to name just a few things we love to do to build a supportive team culture!

You will be naturally a people person with problem-solving skills and someone who goes the extra mile on service. You will also be team player and fit well with our company culture and values
