    The authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful applicants for people working with children and vulnerable adults will need to undertake a Criminal Record Bureau (CRB) enhanced clearance for this authority.

    This post requires that the successful candidate undertake a substantial amount of work involving a visual display unit, s/he will therefore be required to take an eye test.
