All residential roles require a commitment to community living, co-operation, collaboration and sustainability, as well as to the aims of Braziers Park School of Integrative Social Research.

The recruitment process consists of several visits and is briefly described below.
The Recruitment Process for Resident Applicants
On receipt of a promising completed application form, references are checked and applicants may then be invited to visit for a few days to get to know us. If favoured on both sides, a longer stay working in the role for 10-14 days will then be arranged. If this visit is successful, the applicant will be invited to join us for a 3-month trial period (which, in exceptional circumstances, may be extended to 6 months) and in which there will be a review after 6 weeks. If the applicant is successful, this will will lead to becoming a member of the resident community.
The above is the established application process, but we recognise that this process may not be viable for some people. If an applicant wishes to suggest an alternative approach, we are happy to consider this.
There are often many good applicants and only one can be selected, but unsuccessful applicants often continue a relationship with Braziers by becoming members of the Society, joining in on volunteer days, weekends and events, and opportunities to reapply may come up in future.
