Nature of the post
The post holder will be based at one of our residential units in Worsley. Employees should note, however, that they are employed by the Trust and may be required at some point to work at other appropriate Together Trust units.
In addition to the administrative duties the post holder will be required to attend meetings, supervision, annual appraisals and training. The nature of the work of the Together Trust is varied and in many instances unpredictable. All staff are therefore expected to work in a flexible way and tasks that have not been covered in the job description may have to be undertaken.
At all times, the post holder is expected to conduct themselves professionally, to work within the current legislative framework and to adhere to the Together Trust’s Policies & Procedures.
