Project SEARCH Are Recruiting

Do you have a learning disability? Do you want a paid job? Project SEARCH Bradford could be right for you! Come to our Open Evening - 11 December - at the Sovereign Lecture Theatre, Bradford Royal Infirmary, at 6pm for more information.

Project SEARCH is a unique opportunity for young adults aged 18-25 who have a cognitive learning disability, to develop skills for the work place and be supported in their search for employment. Our graduates complete over 900 hours of work experience, in three different roles, with support from a Tutor, Job Coaches and expert work place mentors. The goal of the project is for our interns to find paid employment.
