Working for Us

  • Passionate about fulfilling our mission of supporting each unique person with learning disabilities
  • The highest standards and dedication of our staff is key to our success
  • Always looking for talented, enthusiastic individuals to join our team
The key to our success is our people. Successful candidates come from a wide diversity of backgrounds and bring dedication, compassion, skills, experience and/or a thirst to learn. They must also share our values – integrity, respect, kindness and community. We prioritise an inclusive and collaborative culture, always striving to improve support to both those we support and our staff.

We are currently a staff of approximately 200, with an almost equal number of dedicated volunteers.

We strive to deliver the highest quality services across our Nursery, School, Adult Day Opportunities, Supported Living Services, Further Education, Social Enterprises and Head Office.

Committed to the safety and wellbeing of the adults and children in our care, we recruit within the framework of safeguarding, including a DBS criminal record check where appropriate for the role.
