Administration

Each day is varied and this role gives you opportunities to enjoy the Spring Harvest programme when not on shift. There are times when there is lots to do and it can feel a little pressured, particularly at the start of the break, but there are also times where it is more relaxed and there is opportunity to get to know your fellow team members better.
