If you have been furloughed or made redundant from bar work, restaurants, customer service roles, activity centres, or any other job where your skills could be transferred, we would like to hear from you! You do not need to have any experience to be a Teaching assistant or Care worker, as we will provide extensive training and progression opportunities.

Acorn Park will host a virtual recruitment day on Friday 12th February via Microsoft Teams whereby anyone can log into the session to find out more about the service, the roles, what we are looking for and how to apply. We are hosting a morning session and an afternoon session: please see below the timetable.

We also have great opportunities and development opportunities for Qualified and experienced care and Education staff.

The session will run as follows:
