Questions asked by suppliers

1. Will you consider a candidate who would be able to start in February?
No. The candidate must be available to start at the beginning of January 2017.
2. Is there flexibility for some remote working, or will it be strictly 100% on-site in London?
The role is based in London and we do not remote support remote working for more than one day a week. Given the nature of this role, we anticipate that the individual would need to be onsite for the majority of the time in any event
