The team will be expanding to increase the capacity to provide support to our increasing Peak membership.We are seeking multiple candidates to fill several roles. This process may also be used to develop a merit list of suitable candidates for vacancies that may arise over the next 12 months.Applications close at midnight on Sunday, 20 February 2022.
