Career Development

Career development amongst our staff remains an organisational key objective. The central focus of our recruitment and practices is promoting and empowering those who seek such opportunities. This manifests itself in continuing to provide inclusive employment opportunities for male and female Careworkers and Volunteers, through appropriate vocational packages of support and training. For many of our female staff, for a host of reasons, it is their first step towards educational opportunity and economic independence.
