What are the potential hours?

Part-time hours are available, approximately 10-30 hours per week. Unfortunately, full time or just school hours are not offered due to the nature of the work. If you are available some early mornings, lunchtimes, afternoons, evenings or a few of hours on a weekend, then we want to hear from you.

Due to client locations, it is desirable that you live within the Sutton borough itself.
