Call for carers for our busiest time of year

Autumn and winter are our busiest times of the year. This year, we have the added pressure of the coronavirus pandemic. As the weather turns, our elderly and vulnerable service users are at a heightened risk of illness. There is also more chance of them falling or tripping at home. They can also become lonely and depressed due to the darker evenings. In order for us to maintain our excellent levels of care, we’re on the hunt for new care workers to join us.

Take on a career in care with us

Being a carer is a highly skilled, professional vocational occupation that is essential to the fabric of our society. People can start at the very bottom and work their way up with training and qualifications.

We are looking for kind, honest, caring and reliable individuals who wish to have a stable and long-term career in care. They should wish to forge rewarding relationships with the service users they care for. No experience is necessary to become a carer, as free, full training is given.

Being a carer is an extremely rewarding job and you get to meet lots of wonderful people too.

We’re supporting our colleagues in the NHS wholeheartedly, as we do on a daily basis already, by providing invaluable care for those who need it at home.

By maintaining their health at home, we’re helping keep them safe. We are a crucial service to our most vulnerable category of citizens. We’re ensuring they take their prescribed medication and we’re caring for their physical and emotional well-being every day. All this helps prevent adding additional pressure on the NHS and its resources. We know these will be under considerable strain in the coming months.

As a business, we’re also having to support our carers who have children and therefore have childcare needs, are self-isolating or have other issues which require care calls to be covered, therefore it is crucial that we recruit extra team members.

Anyone interested should contact their nearest branch and details of these can be found at here. You can also find out more information about our job vacancies at www.indeed.com/cmp/Abacare.
