Ceri joins our team as Regional Manager

Ceri O’Sullivan has recently (June, 2018) joined our Ystradgynlais office as one of our new Regional Managers.

In her role with us, Ceri is responsible for writing service user inductions and service delivery plans, supervision of staff, carrying out risk assessments and spot checks on carers, manual handling assessments and quality reviews of services for the Ystradgynlais area.

The 41-year-old from Hirwaun, said: “I am thrilled to have joined the Abacare team and I am really enjoying my new job. It has been great getting to know the rest of the team and they are all extremely helpful and friendly and have made me feel very welcome.

“Joining a company that is committed to promoting from within and helping to advance its employees’ careers was a real attraction to me as I hope to work in the industry for many more years to come.”

Joe Jenkins, Branch Manager at our offices in Ystradgynlais, said: “We’re delighted to have Ceri join our team of Regional Managers. She has settled in extremely well and taken to her new role with ease. She is a kind and committed individual and we are sure she will go really far in her career with us.

“We’re always looking for caring, honest and reliable individuals to join our team. 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.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is looking for a career or someone who just fancies a bit of a change. Being a carer is an extremely rewarding job and you get to meet lots of wonderful people too.

“We’re also offering FaceTime or Skype interviews to candidates in order to meet the demands of the modern jobseeker. Our view is that busy people wanting a career change can ‘meet’ us via FaceTime or similar applications and find out about the roles we have to offer, as well as meet a couple of team members and, if they are about, also say ‘hello’ to a carer too.”
