What we look for in our Care Assistants

  • Commitment, reliability and genuine concern for others

We are looking to recruit enthusiastic and motivated people who want to make a difference and are keen to provide the highest standards of care and support to people in their own homes.  We welcome people of all ages who may be looking for a change of career and who have their own transport.  Experience is not essential
