  • A permanent, stable job in an ever-growing organisation
  • Company pension scheme
What skills and expertise will you need?

You don’t need any previous experience or training (we’ll provide lots of that). But you will need to demonstrate that you share our values of Respect, Excellence, Integrity and Pride, and…

  • be caring and sympathetic
  • be passionate about supporting others
  • be flexible to work early morning, late evening, and sleep-in shifts over a 7 day rota
