Due to an increase in the current contract, we are recruiting additional Outreach Support Workers on a full time, fixed term contact until 31 March 2023, to join the North Essex Outreach Service (Colchester and Tendring). The posts will be embedded into our established team, enabling us to support an increased number of customers living within Essex.
