Most definitely. Although it would be an advantage to have some experience of care work, it isn’t mandatory. We provide full training. What we look for is the right personality and the right attitude.
The short answer is no, although it can depend on the vacancy. Some positions allow the Support Worker to walk or use public transport to get to calls. Alternatively, Support Workers can work together so you might ride as a passenger in one of our Company vehicles. However, these vacancies are not available year round, so please check the specific job requirements, as we will always make it clear whether or not you need a driving licence.
Each car is scheduled on certain runs during the day. If your work pattern matches one of our company car runs, you'll be able to use it.
Support Workers’ hours vary, and we will try to be as flexible as possible in order to suit your preference. At your interview we will ask you for your availability, meaning the hours you choose to work within our defined patterns.
Our office-based vacancies are posted alongside our current openings, by area. Keep checking the relevant pages for any new roles.
No problem. Please call our recruitment team and they will be able to answer any question you have - 0345 481 6002
