See our current opportunities

You can see what jobs we have on offer right now by visiting our Jobs page.

Underneath each job summary, there is a link to download the full job description, person specification, as well as an ‘apply online’ button for when you’re ready to fill out the application form.

We aim to be an excellent employer. Read about our employee benefits and hear from some of our employees about why they love working at Southdown.

If you have any questions, please email jobs@southdown.org or telephone us on 01273 405800.

Apply online

We’re now using an online application form which means you need to have an email address.

Your personal details will be saved in the system, so if you apply for another job within 12 months, you won’t need to fill out every field of the form again.

You can also save applications part way through, so you don’t need to fill out the whole form all at once.

If you’ve applied for a job with Southdown in the last year, you’ll be able to see all your past applications in the online application system too.

Please read the guidance notes before filling out the application form, and check the closing date to make sure you submit it to us on time.

If you’re applying for a role in our Learning Disability Services, we’ve made it super easy for you to apply, shortening our application form significantly – it should only take you a few minutes to complete.

Join us for an interview

If your application for a job is shortlisted then we’ll get in touch and invite you to an interview so that we can find out more about you and what you are looking for in a job, and so that you can ask us any questions that you have too.

We can hold the interview via a video calling service such as Google Meet, Zoom, or  WhatsApp Video.

Proof of right to work in UK

We welcome applications from all backgrounds, nationalities, and communities as long as you have the right to work in the UK and have some documents to prove it. Find out more about working in the UK and what documents you might need.

Data protection

We’re committed to maintaining the standards required by the Data Protection Act, The Homes and Communities Agency, employment law and the various standards agencies for the services we provide.

All personal data supplied as part of our recruitment processes is managed carefully to meet these standards, and individuals have the right to access any data that is held on them. We will keep records for unsuccessful applications for 12 months.
