We also work extensively with commercial, public and voluntary sector organisations, all of whom help Spruce deliver on its social mission. The post holder will work with both existing and new commercial customers to help us meet income targets for the business, which in turn will generate increased operational activity helping to create skills and learning opportunities for our volunteers.
