Our client is happy to accommodate some home working for this assignment due to travel involved on some weeks for such cases listed in tribunals.

You will have the option to work in one of their offices which include the East Midlands, Home Counties or East Anglia to best suit your location. Our client is happy to be flexible around candidate needs should this be due to working from home, working hours per week or condensed hours.
