Enthusiastic and caring people who want to make a real difference to other people’s lives are being invited to a series of recruitment days being staged across Hertfordshire by Hightown Housing Association.

The charitable organisation, which provides a range of care and supported housing services, is recruiting for full-time, part-time and casual positions in its dedicated support teams across the county. There are opportunities to work with a diverse range of client groups including those with learning disabilities, mental health issues and facing homelessness.

The next recruitment days are:

Thursday, September 17: 9.30am - noon, Hightown Supported Housing, Napier Close, Cooks Way, Hitchin, SG4 0BJ. 1.30pm - 4.30pm, Hightown Supported Living Home, Oxleys Road, Stevenage, SG2 9YE.

Friday, September 24, all day, Freshers’ Fair, Bucks New University, High Wycombe, HP11 2JZ. Friday, October 2: All day, Freshers’ Fair, University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, AL10 9AB. To find out more email

The events will give an on-the-spot opportunity for any potential applicants to apply for a

vacancy. Managers from Hightown will be on hand to discuss the roles and interview candidates, with job offers to follow later on.

Applicants need to be 18 years or older, and while previous experience is beneficial, it is not essential as full job training will be given. It could be the start of a rewarding new career, or a role that could fit around other commitments.

Samantha Culverhouse, Hightown Recruitment Manager, said: “We want to recruit people who are committed to delivering high quality care, and we have a range of vacancies at locations across Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

“We provide a full induction and training programme for those with the right attitude –

compassionate, enthusiastic, respectful and with a real “can-do” approach. In return we

offer a competitive salary and benefits package. We’re also accredited by Investors in

People and take pride in developing our staff, including helping them gain nationally-

recognised qualifications.

“We’re looking forward to meeting the applicants, and for the right candidates we have jobs that can begin as soon as all the necessary checks have been cleared.”
