Educated to degree level or with a recognised professional qualification, you will have demonstrable equivalent experience and be able to evidence commitment towards your continuous personal and professional development and training.

You will be expected to provide occasional work outside of normal office hours and have the ability to work across West Yorkshire, and travel to meetings and events nationally as required.
