  • If you live a commutable distance to new office, you can come in as much as you’d like to!
  • This is a remote role. You’ll just need to have broadband access and a space to work at home.
  • You’ll work Monday – Thursday: 10:30 – 19:00. Fridays it’s 09:00 – 17:30. Then you’re free to let your hair down for the weekend.
