Are you the sort of person that can take things in their stride, remain calm and confident?
Experience is welcome but there is no substitute for the right attitude, caring nature, and a sense of humour.
We can and do provide a comprehensive induction and ongoing training as well as person-specific training. We also provide opportunities to complete recognised social care qualifications.

- 20 days holiday + 8 days bank holiday
