This will be a challenging and rewarding role and, to find the right person for the job, we are offering full time or part time hours (minimum 26 hours per week).  The successful applicant will develop networks with people at all levels of decision making and will have the opportunity to influence how we protect young people from becoming victims of crime and exploitation.

Experience of budget management and resource allocation in a project context is required.
