Initially this post will likely be based in Rugby on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons (12:45-15:15), though there will be a requirement at times to travel county-wide for service and team meetings, and there may be a requirement for county-wide travel for supporting teaching and learning in future.
