The above list of responsibilities may not be exhaustive, and the post holder will be required to undertake such tasks and responsibilities as may reasonably be expected within the scope and grading of the post.

The amount of hours worked is flexible up to a maximum of 20 hours per week. There is an expectation that the post holder will be available to work on some Thursdays and Fridays in any given month.
