We will both telephone and interview you in person and personally walk you through the application steps, making sure we both understand your experience, the job requirements on offer and the career aspirations you seek to fulfil your career in Care Services. We can offer interviews at a time to suit you and if you can’t get childcare you can bring your little one’s with you. We are here to answer all your questions. After a successful interview you will offered a role with Abbots Care and we will be able to discuss with you the choice of contractual options available.

If at this stage, you are merely interested in finding out more about what is involved with the role, we also run monthly “taster sessions” which will enable you to see first-hand the work involved within care services. Please do ask our recruitment team about these sessions.

This is paid training * and you will receive a compliant, Care Certificate to prove you are now a successful Care Worker for Abbots Care.

Following successful completion of training you will meet with your dedicated “Care Mentor” who will discuss and explain in-depth your work area. You are now ready to start shadowing our care workers in their home care environments. The time you spend shadowing can vary dependant on how you feel and when you are ready to work alone, but we will support you throughout this period so you are clear on expectations. Our care workers are all paid on a 4 weekly cycle.
