A WELSH care agency has revealed (March, 2017) it is offering re-training to unemployed individuals who are looking for work.
Abacare, which has offices in Bangor, is looking to re-train people, who are currently unemployed, as carers.
Peter Angelides, CEO at the award-winning care agency, Abacare, said: “We believe that offering people re-training in a new industry is a great way to get them back into the working world. Many unemployed people are eager to start work again and we’re looking for anyone who might be interested in re-training for a career in the care industry to get in touch.
“Working in care is an extremely rewarding job and people will have the chance to receive free full training with the opportunity to achieve Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) level 2, 3 and 5 after an initial six months probationary period. It’s a great opportunity to learn something new and gain extra qualifications and experience.”
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.
They are given free uniforms, access to a staff scooter scheme for those needing transport subject to terms and conditions and a national staff discount scheme for all major brands as well as 28 days paid holiday, paid travel between calls and paid mileage.
Abacare operates a professional Care Management Team that is committed to providing high quality care to individuals in their own homes.
The large team of trained, specialist, care workers provide positive based outcomes and person centred care to people throughout the UK.
