Jobs Boost For County Town

Dorchester Town Centre

8:09am 4th September 2013

The opening of 2 new care facilities in Dorchester is to create up to 30 jobs for the town.

Digby Court and Cambridge Court in Poundbury will provide support services to tenants with learning difficulties.

East Boro Housing Trust is taking over responsibility for the new sites and is looking for staff who live locally to take up positions.

A number of care workers from the recently closed Douglas Jackman House will transfer to the facilities.

Two recruitment open days are planned and East Boro chief executive, Kevin Hodder, is expecting plenty of interest in the positions:

"East Boro is delighted to have been awarded the care and support contracts at Digby Court and Cambridge Court. These are outstanding facilities which will provide essential services to the community.

"A number of existing care and support workers will come across from Dorset County Council, should they take up the offer to do so, but with the schemes opening towards the end of November, our recruitment drive for other full and part-time team members is now underway.

"All in all it's great news for us, great news for Dorchester and great news for the local economy."

EBHT's first recruitment open day takes place at the King's Arms Hotel, High East Street, on Friday September 13 between 10am and 4pm. The second will be at the same venue on Tuesday September 17 (10am to 4pm).

Mr Hodder added: "The recruitment open days are designed for people to drop in and find out more about EBHT and the new housing schemes at Edward Road and Poundbury.

"We will have staff on hand to answer any enquires and the idea is to come in, get to know us and pick up an application pack."
