We recognise that our job descriptions are detailed and potentially daunting, but don’t be alarmed – we don’t expect you to know or have experience in everything – this is where we come in! We are looking for people who are motivated, enthusiastic and passionate about improving people’s lives. We see it as our job to help you unlock your potential so you can become the best you can be.
Every day we see people from all walks of life, from workers in sectors such as retail, hospitality, childcare (the list goes on), or people simply providing love and support to family members who have the skills, values and behaviours that would make an excellent care worker. You may not realise you have the potential to be a great care worker, but we do! Come and chat to us to find out more about the skills, experience and values that you have that we want to turn into a rewarding career for you.
We think it is important to recruit and develop a diverse workforce from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. Even if you have never thought about a career in care, all we ask is you explore what care work really is! The role is so much more than you might think. It is about empowering and focussing on people’s strengths to support them to live a fulfilled life. What that looks like is up to them – we believe reablement is about providing support with a ‘do with’ instead of a ‘do for’ approach.
Please watch our video below to help bring the role to life and do look at the job description, but as we say, we will help you develop into the role - we do not need you to be an expert now.
We know that ensuring you feel valued, supported, upskilled and empowered is important to ensure you achieve your best. A happy and supported workforce is key to us meeting needs of residents. We have no doubt that simply doing a great job will continue to motivate and give you a sense of fulfilment, but in addition, we take a great pride in developing careers, so if that interests you, we can offer qualifications and career progression opportunities.
