Henshaws Specialist College is looking for more carers to work with its students aged from 16 to 25, all of whom have special educational needs and disabilities.

It is repeating its successful fast-track event for anyone who wants to consider a career in care or in a clinical role. Timed to fit around existing employment commitments, the event take place from 10am to 1pm on Saturday 7 May and attendees are invited to turn up at any time in those hours with their CVs to find out more about the flexible working hours available.

Current carers will be on hand to share their experiences of working at the College. Carer Ben Gray loves working with the students. He said: I enjoy the challenge of learning what works for each student and supporting them to participate in college life. I love celebrating the big and little victories with students and colleagues. Sure, there are challenging moments, but it’s worth every second.”

No previous experience in care is necessary as full training will be given. Successful applicants will receive a starting bonus of £200.
