One of our core values is that each and every employee is important. An organisation like ours depends on the dedication and commitment of the people who work here – both those who provide care to our residents and the people behind the scenes who make that care possible. The opportunity is there – all you have to do is take it!
Investing in your future
For you to really enjoy your role and provide the best possible care to our clients, it’s essential that you have the necessary skills, confidence and support. That’s why we take our training and support programme very seriously, and why we’ve enjoyed Investor in People status since 2001.
It all starts from the moment you arrive. Our comprehensive induction programme will arm you with all of the essential skills and knowledge to do your job well.
