In light of opening up a new residential home and school for children with autism, a care provider is organising a recruitment drive in order to fill positions for new members of staff.

The Orbis Abbey Rose school, located in a 17-acre site in Tewkesbury, is aiming to recruit 30 team leaders and support workers, particularly to help with clinical and teaching activities. Whilst providing care and aid in the facility, new staff members will also have the opportunity to study wards a Health and Social Care Diploma alongside their work.

It is anticipated that 300 jobs will be created to support the full running of the Orbis Abbey Rose school.

Head of care at Abbey Rose, Stephen Colley, said: “Making a meaningful difference to the lives of children and adults with additional needs is an amazing experience, challenging at times but the job satisfaction is immense.

“Most people involved in the education and care of individuals with complex learning needs see providing much-needed quality of life to those affected, as well as to their families, as not just a profession but as a vocation.

“That’s the way we feel about our work at Orbis Education and Care and we’re looking forward to welcoming like-minded people into our team at Orbis Abbey Rose in the coming months.”
