Your rota will be a mixture of working across both services.

Ongoing training will be given and access to qualifications.

This really is a great opportunity to work for a great company with a variety of service users. You will be developed on a week by week basis and be managed by a great leader and manager.

If you haven't worked in care and support before please be aware that care is a 24/7 role and you will need to be slightly flexible around the needs of the service users. Please be aware that some of the clients with require personal care and support with bathing, showering and hygiene support.
