A fantastic place to work and really make a difference! Start earning. Build a career.

Are you someone who wants to feel proud of what you do each day? Do you want to help a child with learning difficulties and associated challenges live more independently? You don’t need to have any formal qualifications as we can provide the training you need to become qualified – what you do need is energy, enthusiasm and passion to help make a difference.

Aurora Eccles Hall is situated in an idyllic 28 acre site and caters for both day and residential pupils with an age range of 7 to 20.

As a Support Worker, you’ll be helping individuals to live the lives they choose and to ‘empower them to grow’. It’s a really important role, having responsibility for supporting people’s personal, health and care needs. Because you’re with young people for most of the day (or night), you’ll be a vital part of the team that enables them to achieve their full potential. We have around 130 pupils in total and they are all adorable! Please note that for these particular vacancies, weekends are not required although this might change as your role develops.

Local Area: Quidenham is very rural but please don’t worry as there are excellent road and rail links to Norwich (20 miles) and Cambridge (45 miles).

If this sounds like the a career you’d like to develop, being part of our inspiring team will also bring other benefits that include:

  • A competitive salary

  • Paid holiday – to be agreed (school is in session for 35 weeks)

  • Flexible working arrangements - part time considered

  • Career progression, training and support to achieve qualifications

  • High street discounts

  • Free on-site parking

  • Life assurance plan

  • Company Pension plan
