A Hereford charity has announced it is creating up to 40 new jobs in a major expansion.

National Star, which supports young people with disabilities, had already revealed it was opening its first long-term living accommodation in the city.

It will be based at 1 Ledbury Road as part of the charity’s £2.2 million expansion in Hereford.

Work is due to be carried out over the summer with the long-term living bungalows due to open in the autumn.

Now the charity has revealed that it will need to fill new roles, including

care support workers, a housekeeper and a cook.

The charity is staging three recruitment open days - Saturday May 18, Thursday May 23 and Monday June 3 - at The Kindle Centre, Belmont Rd, Hereford.

“National Star is a great place to work and I say that as someone who has been with the charity for 12 years,” said John Mann, Head of National Star at Hereford.

“The long-term bungalows will be for young people with disabilities and learning difficulties and will become their permanent home.”

National Star has run a day education facility in Hereford five years. That facility will move from Harrow Road to 1 Ledbury Road in Summer 2020.

The recruitment days will run from 10am-3pm (May 18) and 2pm-7pm (May 23 and June 3).
