Coronavirus update: Southdown needs you!

If you want to make a really big impact to the most vulnerable people in society, we would welcome you with open arms to the Southdown staff community – just send us your CV and let us know where you live. We can offer you an interview via a video calling service such as Skype.
You’ll be offered on the job training as well as e-learning, and we’ve just introduced a 2% pay increase for all staff. To apply for a role at this time, please email, or telephone 01273 405800.
To apply for any of our other vacancies, please visit our Jobs section. Underneath each vacancy summary, there is a link to download the full job description, person specification and an 'apply online' button for when you're really to complete an application.

We are now using an online application form which requires you to have an email address. The online application system allows you to have access to all current and previous applications submitted, provided you make an account. Your personal details are saved so if you apply for another job you only have to complete certain fields again. You're also able to save applications part way through so you can complete them at a later date.

If you do not have access to an email address, you can create one quickly and easily by using an online search engine and searching for ‘create email address’.

Please read the guidance notes before completing an application form and note the closing date for applications.
