This September, recruitment hits the road!

Discovery is heading out on tour across Somerset!

Do you live in or close to Somerset?

Are you interested in exploring or developing a career in support, where you will make a difference every day?

We are holding live evening events across Somerset throughout September. You will have the opportunity to meet some of our colleagues and people we support, to find out how you can make a difference.

We’ll be there to welcome you, hear about what you are looking for and talk to you about what we offer our colleagues and the roles we have available now.

We recruit on our values not your experience, this means we provide all the training and qualifications you need, you can find out about our values here.

The Discover Discovery Tour is coming to you…
