Chailey Heritage Foundation looking for new staff

Chailey Heritage Foundation provide education and care for young people with complex disabilities.

They are looking to recruit new staff across 14 different roles, including support workers (both on-site and in the community), lunchtime and teaching assistants and housekeeping roles.

Some of the new roles will be based at their headquarters in North Chailey, other roles are providing individual support for young people in their homes across the South East.

Amy Selby, a Senior Support Worker, says it’s a great place to work.

She said, “It is lovely working with these young people. It is a very special working environment. It is challenging but rewarding. There are highs and lows but that’s the case with most jobs.”

Amy works with teenager Mikey Turner who has been living at Chailey Heritage for four years. Mikey recently wanted a holiday at home with his loving family in Rusper near Horsham.

Amy said, “It was magical being able to make it possible for Mikey to go home for a week and spend precious time with his family. We even took Mikey on a canal trip. Making such magical memories is amazing and I would strongly recommend it.”

Chief Executive, Helen Hewitt, said, “We employ around 450 people at Chailey Heritage Foundation and 2020 has, of course, been a challenging year for everyone. We always strive to employ high quality people who in turn provide the best possible support to the children and young people in our care.

We have had to review the way we operate during this pandemic. As a result, we have vacancies available across a wide range of roles.”
