Clients will not require a formal diagnosis in order to receive support.

The post offers:

37 hour working week
25 days annual leave plus bank holidays, increasing to 30 days
Clinical supervision
NMC Pin number paid for
Continuous learning and development
Opprtunity to shape an exciting new role

We need a volunteer driver on Tuesdays and Thursdays for Cambridge Cyrenians Allotment Project. The task will be to drive the Long Wheel Base Landrover to pick up group members from local pick-up points in Cambridge at around 9am, and take them to the Whitehill allotment site in Elfleda Road for 10am.
The return journey will drop the group members back to the pick-up points after the sessions at 2pm. This will take approximately 1 to 1 and half hours each way, so up to 3 hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The driver will be expected to be able to complete basic daily vehicle checks such as diesel/ oil/ other fluids and lights before driving the Landrover in the mornings.
