The post is for 30 hours per week, fixed term until March 31st 2016.  Salary is £18,702 actual for the 30 hours (£22,443 if full time) and we offer 25 days annual leave plus 8½ public holidays (pro rata for part time employees).  Based at the Resource Centre in Hall Street, Halifax, the successful person will be expected to work across the Borough of Calderdale and work flexibly to meet the needs of the networks.

Interested?  Then download the documents from our website and return the application form by email to by 12 noon on Friday 22nd August 2014.  As part of our commitment to reduce the impact on the environment we prefer to receive applications electronically; however, if you require a hard copy please call 01422 348777 and this can be arranged.

Please note we do not accept CVs.   VAC promotes equalities throughout its work and we therefore ask that you also complete the attached monitoring form and return it with your application.  This is not used in the selection of applicants.

Interviews will take place on 2nd September 2014.
