Brain injury and neurological conditions specialists Headway Suffolk is hosting a recruitment open day on Thursday 3 November 2016 from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm at its hub in Epsilon House, Ransomes Europark in Ipswich.
The charity, which is one of the largest and fastest-growing Headway groups of 130 in the UK, currently employs 90 staff across the county and supports 250 people a week who have sustained a brain injury or have a neurological condition.
Headway Suffolk attracted widespread local, national and international media coverage on October 5 when world-renowned scientist Professor Stephen Hawking made a rare public appearance at its neuro conference to talk about his life with motor neurone disease.
The conference, which drew over 800 people at two venues, also included keynote speeches from Prof John Pickard of Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Dr Chowdhury of Ipswich Hospital and Dr Trevor Powell, a consultant clinical psychologist and author.
The event generated new interest in Headway’s services and the recruitment open day will offer a chance to learn about employment opportunities available.
Headway’s services promote and enable clients’ independence through rehabilitation and therapy at its hubs, in the community and in the person’s home throughout Suffolk.
It is very rewarding and motivating work by making a positive difference to people’s lives through rehabilitation where you are given time to give quality care and support.
Applicants should have a genuine desire to help people; a friendly, respectful and caring approach to care; the ability to relate to people from a wide variety of backgrounds; patience and a sense of humour; a willingness to learn and should be reliable and flexible.
