Jobs & Vacancies at SWRAC

Working with SWRAC

Listed below are our current vacancies. Our organisation has a strong and genuine ethos of trying to do what is right for our learners. Our core programmes follow the ‘Preparing for Adulthood’ themes of Employability, Health, Social Involvement and Independence. These four areas are equally applicable to our Alternative Provision Students or our students who have Special Educational Needs. We also offer training programmes for unemployed adults – in the construction.

When filling our posts we look for people with a great sense of humour and an enthusiasm to help people achieve the best they can be. Whilst in many roles it is a requirement that you possess certain qualifications, we do like to consider your personal skills and positive attitude as a main priority. We absolutely welcome applications from anyone and we will appoint on the basis of the ‘best person for the job’.

We do try to be a good employer, we recognise that people have families and will try to be as flexible as we possibly can and will be pleased to receive any proposals you have for alternatives to full time hours/job shares/flexible working – obviously within the constraints of what the work requires. We offer quite generous holiday entitlements and always have a break at Christmas to recharge the batteries. We do not work strictly to the traditional school term system so you can flexible with your holiday timings.

We operate out of 4 main centres , Wimborne (Merley House), Dorchester, Bournemouth and Liverpool (yes, Liverpool). All roles will be allocated a particular base and for the majority of the time this will be your normal place of work. However, sometimes we will ask to help out in other areas where the need arises but, don’t worry , we are not unreasonable and will not ask you to do anything too out of the ordinary.

We work with many vulnerable children and adults. You will understand that we have to make sure that ensuring the safety of all is of utmost priority. All appointments have to be subject to appropriate levels of DBS , references and ID checks.

In any job application process, there is generally only 1 person who finally gets appointed and, whilst we’d like to employ everyone it’s not possible to do so. If you aren’t successful, we are very sorry but it doesn’t mean that we wouldn’t consider you for any other post or to apply again – it just means on that occasion someone ‘pipped you to the post’!

If you’d like to apply for any of the roles, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Please send us your CV, a covering letter detailing what your motivations are for applying and (no more than) one side of A4 suggesting what you might bring to the job and ideas of what you’d do if successful. We’d be very happy to chat over things informally before you make your application.

Call us on 01202 848099 for a quick chat and/or email your CV to jobs@swrac.ac.uk

Thank you for your interest, we’ll be very pleased to hear from you.
