Working within an organisation with a huge social impact, this is an important role with a wide scope of influence. Your work will directly affect the local community in Bath and contribute to bettering the lives of countless people facing complex issues in their lives.

In return, you'll get the chance to work with a highly supportive line manager who has demonstrated a knack for furthering the careers of those in this role. There is an excellent team-focused working culture, with flexible working policies and an attractive benefits package.
