A SUPPORT services organisation is calling on anyone interested in a career in support work to attend a recruitment open day in Swindon.

The open day is being organised by REACH Supported Living, a member of the south Wales-based Seren Group, which aims to support people to live independent, fulfilled lives.

REACH will be providing new support services for people who are labelled as challenging or on the autistic spectrum in the Swindon area and is looking to employ up to 60 people on both a full and part-time basis.

Seren Group’s head of human resources, Maxine Wiseman, said: “Despite the current economic climate, there is still a real need for good support workers.

“What’s more, we give excellent training so the positions may be suitable for people who are out of work as a result of the recession and looking for a career change.

“The benefit of attending an open day like this is that potential candidates will have the opportunity to ask any questions they have about the work in an informal environment.

“We are also hoping to conduct mini-interviews so people will know if they have been shortlisted by the time they leave.”

The event will take place on April 2 with presentations at 10am, noon, 1.30pm and 3pm at the Pilgrim Centre, Regent Circus. Visit www.seren-group.co.uk for details
