Care as a career
If you are reading this, you are either considering a career in care or are already well established in the industry and keen to take the next step in your professional journey. Perhaps you are a carer or nurse with some experience, in which case you will already be familiar with the many good reasons for working in care. You will know, for example, that it is incredibly rewarding with a high level of job satisfaction – every day gives you an opportunity to make a difference to someone’s life while building a unique relationship with them. You will also be acquiring some very valuable knowledge, skills and experience along the way.
To join our company as a carer you don’t have to have previous experience but what you really do need is a passionate desire to help others. We have a number of different caring roles across our home, as well as within our housekeeping, facilities, activities and administration teams, which are all vital in their own way to the smooth running of our homes. Whatever you’re looking for, we can help you to find it.
