The Role of a Care Officer
We have an extensive range of opportunities, with our primary roles in care, education and life skills development. Our Care Officers are vital to both the success of the people who use our services and to the success of our organisation. Demanding, challenging, yet equally rewarding, as a Care Officer no two days are ever the same.
You don’t have to have come from a social care background, or have a formal qualification to develop a career in care. Whether you have raised your own family, helped out in the community, supported elderly relatives, or are simply a caring and understanding person, many of the skills you will have learned through your life are transferable to the role of Care Officer. You just need to have a genuine interest and desire to support and nurture people.
We offer high rates of pay plus premium payments for weekends, nights, public holidays and special days, flexible contracts and first class benefits.
