Two job opportunities at the Park

As part of the on-going re-organisation of its operational management, Moseley Park and Pool Trust is offering two or more exciting part-time job opportunities. These jobs will be on six-month self-employed contracts in the first instance, but could become permanent positions in the longer term. Moseley Park and Pool is a beautiful and well-used green space in the heart of Moseley which is open to the public on a daily basis. These contracts are required to provide essential services for the smooth running of the Trust and the safe and secure operation of the Park and Pool. The Trust actively encourages applications from all sections of the community.
