The ideal candidate will also have excellent IT skills and be able to work well in a largely paperless environment.

The successful candidate will be part of the Care, Capacity and Court of Protection team within the Private Client Department.

The Department as a whole has a strong reputation in the local area for providing excellent client care and service.
