Become a care home worker

Are you caring and kind? Are you looking for a fulfilling and rewarding career to be proud of, where every single day you will go home knowing that you have made a meaningful, positive difference to people’s lives?

Working as a care professional in a residential service is about supporting people with their physical and emotional needs.  Enabling people to have a fulfilling, meaningful and dignified life, whilst encouraging them to retain their skills and supporting them to learn new skills.  You will learn about people’s lives, families, and skills by providing a friendly ear to those who want to share.

Our care homes support both younger people (under 65) and older adults (over 65).

Due to the 24-hour nature of residential care, care home providers can offer flexible hours to fit around your family, social life, and friends. Everyone gets a full induction when they start, with ongoing training and development. A role in Adult Social Care has endless possibilities with huge scope for progression for those committed to supporting people.

About you

While the role requires some core life skills like teamwork, good communication and listening skills, it's your values, behaviour and attitude that will set you apart.

If you're the sort of person who treats others with respect, listens to their needs and understands their emotions and is kind, patient and compassionate, then caring could be the career for you.

Does this sound like you? If the answer is yes, why not see what care professional roles are available in the local area where you can make a real positive difference to someone’s life?

We work with care home providers across the county who deliver care to our citizens on our behalf.
