Today we are launching this year’s Annual Survey. This is a key opportunity to help set priorities for the coming period. We will use the results of this survey to inform the work of ALT for the coming year, what we prioritise and how we put our shared values into practice.

We are looking to recruit an Events Manager to cover for maternity leave within our team from January 2018 for a fixed term period of between 9-12 months.
