Do you want to be part of a dynamic and evolving team where you can make a difference? Do you have passion to help others?
As a result of St. Elizabeth’s continued organisational development and effective business strategy we are ever expanding and therefore looking to increase our existing team of exceptional care staff. Our dedicated team support the operation of a number of Residential Care bungalows, (with nursing and therapy support), for over 100 adults who have epilepsy, learning disabilities/challenging behaviour or physical disabilities. As a well established organisation, our values & commitment are to give vulnerable people the best possible quality of life.
Located in Much Hadham, only 15-20 minutes drive from Harlow or Bishop Stortford, our dedicated team support independent living, whilst providing personalised support, leisure and day activities along with assisting with personal care. As you would naturally expect, there are inevitably some difficult and challenging situations and you need to be the sort of person that will remain calm and confident. Experience is welcome, however training and continued development is available for those wishing to work in a caring and rewarding environment.
We provide comprehensive induction and ongoing training with the opportunity to complete recognised social care qualifications. All staff are required to have an enhanced DBS, which is paid by the Centre.

Here is what some of our team have to say about working at St. Elizabeth’s Centre:
Care Support Worker
My orientation training was really well planned. I have learnt so much already – it’s my first care job. It’s challenging in a good way and even better than I expected. I Love It. The people are really welcoming. If I have a problem, there is always someone to ask.
Community Fundraising Officer
I feel very proud to work for St Elizabeth’s I have worked here for the past 2.5 years and thoroughly enjoy it. Working here at the centre each day I see so much care & compassion from all our staff towards our School Children, College learners & Adult residents.
I have the opportunity to talk about St Elizabeth’s to local community groups and Corporate organisations to help raise awareness and share what a fantastic job everyone does here and share how happy our residents are.
I love working outside – the tasks are exciting and challenging and there is never a dull moment. The staff are friendly. I have worked here for over 11 years and hope to continue working here for many more years to come. I have seen the Centre grow, getting bigger and better, with lots of opportunities.
