Social care is a challenging and rewarding career.

You will work with people to enable them to remain at home to continue to live full and valued lives, promoting and encouraging independence where possible. You will assist people with their personal care such as bathing and dressing, support with catheter and/or stoma where required, provision of meals and administration of medication.
We can offer you an opportunity of a career working with people, training and development and a nationally recognised qualification. Good rates of pay, excellent holidays, a generous pension scheme and a range of staff benefits are all part of the package.
A full driving licence is desirable as is the use of a car for work. You can register as an essential driver and become eligible to claim work related mileage at 0.45p per mile.
