Joining our community of carers

We pride ourselves on being a pretty special place to work. It’s the reason we have such long-serving staff, some of whom have been with us for nearly 25 years. Every staff member becomes part of our family whom we look after as much as we do our residents. For more than 40 years, we’ve been a trusted employer in the community, providing a welcoming home away from home for older people, including those living with dementia or requiring end-of-life care.

If you share our values of social care, have a genuine concern for the wellbeing of others and want to make a positive impact in the world, you’ll fit right in.

No two days are the same

Working in care isn’t your typical 9-5 job – you’ll never be bored. The varied nature of the job means that each day brings exciting challenges. As the needs and interests of our residents can change from day to day, you’ll thrive here if you’re good at thinking on your feet and adapting to your environment.

There’s flexibility

One of the most valuable benefits of working in care is the amount of flexibility it offers. We understand that you may have your own family to look after and responsibilities to manage. Together, we can devise a schedule that suits you and your lifestyle.

You’ll meet interesting people

When you work in residential care, you’ll be surrounded by fascinating people with different life experiences and perspectives. Very often, they’ll be more than willing to share their stories and wisdom with you. Spending time with interesting people who have lived such colourful lives is truly one of the greatest joys of working in care.

There are opportunities to progress and learn

When you join our team, you’ll receive ongoing specialist training so that your knowledge and qualifications are always up to scratch. Working in residential care offers some great career development opportunities and the chance to expand your care toolbox.

The benefits are great

In addition to receiving a pension, you’ll earn a fair hourly pay, holiday pay and benefit from great working conditions. We even provide a free DBS check. When you join our family, we guarantee you’ll have ongoing support from our close-knit team.

You’ll truly make a difference

Working in care is an incredibly rewarding experience. At the end of your shift, you can go home knowing that you have empowered our residents to live well and contributed to their happiness and wellbeing.
