This will be a challenging yet rewarding role with varying demands on time and energy during the different project phases.

  • Fee - rate of £10 per hour paid against invoiced hours worked.
  • Hours - part-time, with varying daily commitment during the different phases of the project. Estimated total hours = 400.
