  • Skills with Microsoft Word, Outlook and Excel and a willingness to develop experience in other applications.
  • Current or recent accreditation to run MOJ programs for adults & children, or be eligible to become accredited.

Flexibility around days and hours is required and you will need to have flexibility to work between 7am - 7pm Monday to Saturday.
