COME AND WORK FOR RAY!
We are looking to recruit a Project Coordinator for an exciting new Community Transport Scheme in the Doncaster area.

The post is part time (initially 21 hours per week with potential to increase to 28 hours depending on future funding) and is a fixed-term contract from January to October 2015. The salary is £25,440 pro rata. Check out the job advert for full details and an application pack.
