​Trainees have direct contact wth clients and their staff.  The work is split between office-based and out at clients' premises with the majority of travel being within the Hertfordshire aea but some further afield.

We will help you to get the right mix, and we will expect you to take responsibility for projects and people as soon as you are ready.  In addition, you will also acquire strong IT, communication and management skills.
