• Maintain accurate administrative records and contribute to written reports.

 

Ideal candidates will be passionate about working with people, including children and young people, and want to develop their knowledge and experience with working with their community.  You will be a great communicator with a positive, “can do” approach who is comfortable speaking with a wide range of people.
