Considered A Career In Care?

Local children and young adults’ charity, Chailey Heritage Foundation is inviting those thinking about a career in social care to join them at its Career Open Day and Roadshows, held around Sussex in September.

As part of recruitment drive, Chailey Heritage Foundation is holding the open day and three pop up events for those interested in becoming support workers to the children and young people with complex physical disabilities and high health needs that attend the school and residential facility:

  • Friday 20th September – Uckfield Civic Centre 10am-2pm
  • Tuesday 24th September – Burgess Hill Shopping Centre 10am-2pm
  • Thursday 26th September – Haywards Heath Waitrose 10am-2pm
  • Saturday 28thSeptember – Chailey Heritage Foundation, 10am-12pm

The events give those interested in a career in care the opportunity to talk to members of the Chailey Heritage team and have a chance to see how the nationally recognised centre of excellence makes a difference to both those they support and their families and friends.

The local charity is looking for carers, with both experience and new to the care for a number of roles including day and night support workers, bank support, for those wanting a more flexible work pattern, and community support workers.

Rob Hambrook, Head of Community Operations for Chailey Heritage Foundation, comments, 

“Our support workers are the heart of what we do here at Chailey Heritage and their role is integral to the wellbeing and happiness of every one of the young people.  The role not only brings opportunities to those looking for a career in care, or the next step up on their career ladder, but also gives those they care for the opportunity to reach their full potential and prepare them for life.”

Kate, who presently works at Chailey Heritage as a support worker continues, 

“Working with the children and young people and their families at Chailey Heritage is life changing. You have the opportunity to understand the support these amazing young people and their families need and how you can make a difference as well as learn skills and gain experience in how to care for those with complex disabilities and high health needs.”

Renumeration packages range from £ 17,127-£ 20,090 dependent on experience (based on 37 hours per week) with comprehensive benefits.
