What experience do i need?

 We  are all committed to improving the standards of care for our elderly  people, to give them options to continue to lead as full a life as  possible in their later years.  Although many carers have already worked in the health sector,  professional experience is not always needed. For instance, you may have  cared for a family member in the past. The important ingredients for  the role are universal, such as compassion, dedication, common sense, a  positive, outgoing personality and a good level of fitness. Needless to  say, you’ll be comfortable working on your own.

Support in your role

 

Don’t worry. As a  carer, you’ll never feel on your own.  As part of your professional  development, there’s a real sense of team spirit.  As a demanding job, the support on offer tends to be very high.  Carers and clients are carefully matched, making sure you and the person  you’re looking after will get on well throughout your time together. In  fact, your wellbeing is taken just as seriously as the client’s.

Supervision is also there when needed, along with expert coaching and  mentoring. All so you can deliver the very best care, without ever  feeling you’re being left to cope alone.

If you’re brilliant at your job, there’s also the potential to step  up into a supervisor or management role, which means you’ll enjoy lots of scope for career progression  with us. And of course, you can relax knowing you’re working for a trusted, experienced company.
