If you can answer “yes” to these questions you may be just who we’re looking for. Do you have experience of working with older people? Do you understand the health and well being agenda?

Do you have experience of managing buildings and reporting repairs? Are you capable of maintaining accurate records, including use of a computer? Can you encourage tenants to play an active role in organising their own social activities? Can you travel across the whole Borough?
