A WELSH care provider is calling for kind and caring individuals from the country to put themselves forward for a care worker position.
Abacare, which has offices in Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT), Newtown, Bangor and Ystradgynlais, is looking to hire 200 new carers to provide care to its service users.
Peter Angelides, CEO of the multi award-winning Abacare, said: “Our company has gone from strength to strength and we are now one of the biggest providers of care to the elderly and vulnerable within Wales. Because demand for care is so high our team is always expanding and we’re regularly taking on new care workers to provide expert care across RCT, Newtown, Bangor, Ystradgynlais and the surrounding areas.
“No experience is necessary, just a willingness to care and to learn. Our company induction includes first aid, dementia awareness, health and safety, food safety, infection control, handling medication and moving and handling service users.
“There are lots of opportunities for internal advancement for all our team members who show commitment, reliability and true passion. We provide a great support network for all of our carers too.
“Anyone who joins us can reach QCF level 2, 3 and 5 with our support and we’re urging anyone thinking of changing their job, or getting back into the work force again, to get in touch as soon as possible and not to miss out on this fantastic career opportunity.”
Abacare provides all staff with full training and shadowing before they start, and they have additional, on the job support from the team 24/7.
