Start your New Year with a new career in care

If your New Year’s resolution is to give your working life a bit of a shake-up, why not consider a career in care with us?

The New Year is the perfect time to think about where your career is taking you and if you’re really happy with it, or if it’s going in the direction you want. If you’re in need of a change, you should consider joining our award-winning team where you can build yourself a vocation in life.

If you’re caring, honest and reliable, then you’re the type of person we’re looking for.

We offer fantastic training and the opportunity for internal advancement. Anyone who joins us is not only getting a new job, they are creating a career path with the different qualifications they can achieve, including QCF level two, three and five, and a vocation for themselves thanks to the very rewarding work they will be carrying out.

Zoe Paine, who is an Operations Executive at our Rhondda Cynon Taf office, said: “I feel I have really started to carve a career out for myself within the care industry and am looking forward to what the future holds for me. It is fantastic that a business such as Abacare is committed to promoting from within and providing its staff, who show outstanding contribution to their role, with career progression. I would really recommend the care industry to anyone else looking for a vocation in life.”

No experience is necessary to become a carer as we offer free, full training, which includes a company induction, first aid, information on dementia, health and safety, food safety, infection control, handling medication and moving and handling service users, with the opportunity to achieve Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) after the initial six months probationary period.

New recruits are given free uniforms, access to national staff discount scheme for all major brands as well as 28 days paid holiday, paid travel between calls and paid mileage.

Being dependable is key to this role as you will be looking after the needs of vulnerable adults. Applicants also need to be even tempered and caring and must enjoy making a positive difference to people’s lives.

Being patient, able to cope with change and having the ability to display empathy and warmth are also essential. You will need to have your own transport and mobile phone.

The demand for care in the area is continuously growing and our service user base is always expanding so we’re always on the lookout for kind and caring individuals who are looking for a career change and want to join us.

Brenda Francis, who is one of our carers in Newtown, said: “I have been a carer for 10 years now and I enjoy my work very much. I love chatting to the service users and doing everything I can to enable them to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. I treat them with dignity and respect and help them all I can with their daily needs.”
