Staff employed at Centre 81 are chosen because it is considered that they have the capacity and ability to add value to the organisation and to the lives of those we support. Whether we are seeking full or part-time staff the process is very similar.

Those interested are invited to meet with Centre 81 members and managers on a first come first serve basis for an informal and relaxed ‘interview’. This provides the opportunity for people to understand a little more about us and the work we do.  Questions can be asked and those participating will then have the opportunity to collect an application form, job profile and person specification.  This is also the opportunity for people to realise this may not be the job for them and for others to recognise that they would prefer to volunteer their time with us in the first instances in order to apply for a future post when they have more experience.

Completed application forms are short-listed against the person specification and those successful are invited to a formal interview.
