We think that Camphill Milton Keynes Communities is a great place to work!
Our residents have individual tailored packages of care and support within a community that not only accepts but also values each persons individual contribution and aims to share life’s achievements along with all of its ups and downs.
We have a growing employed staff team engaged in a range of roles including Care & Support, running workshops and supporting the administration and related work of the Charity.
Our staff are committed to achieving the best that they can for our residents in whatever role they undertake. No one would suggest it’s easy. Some of our workshops like the gardens, bakery and café can be hard physical work, the offices are often busy and the work in the care and support team can be challenging and emotionally draining at times. However, we work together as a community to support each other, we provide induction and training, annual appraisal and ongoing supervision alongside individual support for all of our staff. We share in the successes and achievements of each individual – together.
If you want to be part of our Community where people live, work, learn and celebrate together and you think you have something special to offer, then we want to hear from you!
