Join our Team

Could you be the right person to join our team?

We choose people who will uphold our values showing compassion, respect and dignity, that are trustworthy, deliver high-quality care and are committed to continuous learning and skill development. Read more about our values.

All staff are fully trained and supported for their roles and receive ongoing training as well as access where appropriate for NVQ Level 2 and 3 diplomas in Health and Social Care. If you are new to social care we have a Care Certificate training programme to ensure you are both fully competent and confident.

Staff are encouraged and supported to see their work in terms of helping people to achieve their goals and desired outcomes and not just to perform the prescribed tasks.  We look for people we see caring as a vocation and not as a job.

Our carers are very positive about our organisation and the rewards they get from being part of this caring team.

I've worked for a few different care providers, but never felt that the company looked after their clients or staff in the way they deserved. I had heard that you treated your staff well and that you had a good reputation in the community - my friends weren't wrong! I'm able to care for the people I support with dignity and respect, whilst being treated with dignity and respect myself. For the first time as a Care Worker, I feel supported and empowered.
