  • Creating and updating website content when required
  • Assisting with company events and delegates management        
  • Updating and working with databases

As an established company, we would also welcome applications from recent graduates or students who can demonstrate a portfolio of relevant works but are looking to take their first steps into professional employment as well as from experienced candidates who seek to work on a part-time basis.

This new position reflects a period of expansion within the company and therefore is offered on an initial one year fixed-term contract with the potential for a permanent role for a high performing candidate.
