    The team is based in Shand House, Darley Dale. We are continuing to offer a hybrid approach to working, so you will be able to work both in the office and at home to suit your needs and the needs of the service. 

    Here’s what our team tell us about working here:

    • It’s really rewarding to be able to provide quick outcomes that make a difference to people
    • You get to work with a real variety of cases 
    • There are great learning opportunities
