Job Location – COVID-19

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the majority of staff are, in the main, working from home with most services and functions continuing as normal.  Therefore, it is likely you will be required to work from home for the start of your contract and this may include having a virtual induction and training via telephone, email and video calls. Subject to the appropriate safety measures being in place, there may be a requirement for some face to face delivery for specific groups of delegates.

We are unclear at this stage when we will be able to resume normal operations therefore, you will need to have a suitable space to work at home, with access to the internet and the ability to make confidential calls and attend virtual meetings.  You will be provided with all equipment necessary to do this.
