If you're a confident, warm and friendly person, with a passion to support people, who can be flexible and adapt to different situations, we would like you to join our team. This is a genuinely rewarding role where no two days are the same.

What you can expect from us

The main one (we think) is that you'll become part of a friendly, fun and innovative team. Here at Clarion we're dedicated to rewarding hard work and commitment and providing benefits that support you and your lifestyle. As standard we offer;-

  • Competitive salaries that are benchmarked regularly against current market rates

  • Initial 25 Days annual leave (plus bank holiday), increasing to 30 days after 3 years' service.

  • A flexible benefit scheme tailored to you, inclusive of dental insurance, restaurant card, cycle to work; we also give you 1% of your salary to spend on whichever approved benefit you like!

  • Flexible and agile working for the majority of our employees

  • Eye care vouchers

  • Holiday trading scheme allowing you to buy and sell leave

  • Free counselling and legal advice scheme for you and your family

  • Interest free loans for season ticket and study leave
