  • ensuring customer visits are adequately covered, identify improvements and pre-empt recruitment needs
  • attending weekly reviews with service users
  • maintaining the internal administrative system and ensure that client records are up-to-date
  • participating in the on-call rota


We encourage a healthy work/life balance with family-friendly policies. We offer an attractive benefits package for employees and a competitive and transparent system of pay and reward.
