A career with Genesis

We work to meet individual expectations and dreams.

Our values are our strength.

We believe in being people-centred. This means supporting people to do what they want and encouraging them to set and achieve new goals and reach out to achieve their full potential.

We believe in empowering, including and respecting all people. Genesis supports people from all walks of life. We expect our staff to treat everyone with respect and to value the differences between people.

We believe in challenging wrong ways of thinking about learning disability.  Some people think that people with a learning disability are less important than other people. We challenge these assumptions every day in our work.

We believe in transforming lives. Some people with a learning disability haven't been given the same opportunities as other people because of assumptions about what they can and can't do. We believe in challenging and developing new ideas. We don't stop at 'good enough', we want to drive up our standards, push out our boundaries and constantly strive to improve the way we support people. 

Before you apply for a job with us, ask yourself the following questions.

Is it important to you to help other people achieve what they want in life?

Do you feel strongly about equality in society?

Are you willing to speak out to challenge assumptions?

Would you be good at seeing the potential opportunities for others?

Do you like change? 

Are you a creative thinker?

If you answered yes to these questions, your values are the same as ours!
