ESPA Domiciliary Agency will be opening an Independent Supported Living Service in the NE23 area of North Tyneside [Annitsford, Cramlington] for two young men, with a third young man joining the service at a later date.

- 6 weeks paid holiday increasing to 8 weeks
- Company Pension Scheme
- Life Assurance
- Meals provided on shift
- Company sick pay scheme up to 3 months full pay
- Intensive 3 week Induction with continuous training and development
