As a leading national charity we believe that highly trained and motivated staff are vital to help us continue our excellent track record of providing life-changing support for people with disabilities.
We will support staff at all levels to study towards qualifications and Apprenticeships to create personal and organisational growth as we value our staff and want to encourage them to reach their potential.
We will also encourage staff to grow from within to develop the skills they need to become our future managers and leaders.
For clinical staff, our multi-disciplinary team approach and commitment to research offers an unrivalled opportunity for professional development and we also encourage staff in our support functions such as finance, IT and HR to obtain professional qualifications that create growth and overall contribution to their role.
I just knew. I said, “I want to work there! This is it!” I’ve never said that about anything. As soon as you walk in the place grabs. It’s almost like a family.”
