Other Information

The business is run from a spacious, purpose-built office at the back of a residential address in the peaceful village of Kennington. Although the office is separate and fully self-contained with kitchen and bathroom facilities it should be considered as a home office and applicants would need to be aware of the more relaxed environment and the presence of an 8 year old black Labrador that spends most of the time in the office!
