We have a number of vacancies for those seeking care roles in Dorset.

Care Worker Night Shifts – Support and care during the night, as required by service users, who may be elderly, people with dementia, or people with learning disabilities. Companionship – Providing companionship and emotional support for customers who require it, either in their home, or by taking them out and about to see friends, or attend social events.

Training Process

All of our care workers will receive high-quality training, delivered by qualified nurses and experts within the field of social care, who will draw upon both theoretical and practical experience. Over the course of the training process, you will learn the theory behind providing care and take part in practical training sessions. This training will be provided as part of a six day paid induction and, once completed, you will receive a Care Certificate, which is compliant to the UK government’s Skills for Care standards.
