Applications should be by way of CV and covering letter sent either electronically or posted to me at the address below. I am still awaiting final copy of job descriptions for each, so students can apply for both positions in the meantime and I will forward these descriptions as soon as I have them.

These posts are also advertised at JobCentrePlus with references PEI/15734 and PEI/15735 should any of your students wish to view them online.

I should also have postcard flyers later today which I can forward to you; in the meantime if you require any further info, please let me know.

Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter

Kind regards
