You will assist to recruit, train and provide technical supervision to new starters to the team and provide day-to-day supervision and assistance to your supervisees and to others as and when required. Reporting directly to the Deputy Director of Advocacy you will assist with new internal/external client capture, business development and client relations (bids, tenders, seminars, CPD events etc).
