Spaces are available to join the first ever cohort of new Prior’s Court scheme which offers graduates the chance to build a rewarding career.

Our Graduate Programme was launched last year to offer a structured, yet flexible pathway into a career in the care sector.

After last month successfully recruiting the first candidates to start work with us in September this year, we are now in a position to find further graduates to join this first cohort.

Successful applicants will spend most of their 18-months with us working in our Residential and Education functions, experiencing direct contact roles with young people with severe autism.

During the 18-months with us, successful applicants will also need to complete a supplementary project which must be on a subject which will enhance the lives of our young people and the provision provided at Prior’s Court. This could include a piece of academic research or the successful implementation of a new activity or venture for our young people.

At the end of the 18-month programme, successful candidates will be ready to apply for a permanent job within our Residential team.

Cherri Cook, Graduate Programme Lead, said: “Our programme provides graduates with the opportunity to make a real difference every single day to the lives of our young people.

“Over the 18-month period, each successful candidate will be supported to fulfil their potential, being given the platform which they can build a truly rewarding career in care.

“We are keen to hear from current graduates and those graduating this summer, as well as from universities which may be interested in knowing more about the pathways we offer.”

We are looking for applicants with a degree in any discipline and a passion to change lives of young people with severe autism.

The graduate programme is open for applications until 27th March with graduates beginning work with us in August.
