posted in: News | 0

Machynlleth job seekers can find out what it is like to work in the care industry from experienced carers during our recruitment event at Machynlleth Job Centre on Maen Gwyn Street on Thursday, April 5 from 11am.

At our recruitment events we think it’s really important for people interested in working for us to be able to speak to someone who has first-hand experience dealing with our service users. They can find out what a typical working day is like for a carer and what it involves. They can also find out all about the different training opportunities available, benefits for staff members and how they can turn their career into a vocation in life.

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) in health and social care.

New recruits are given free uniforms, access to national staff discount scheme for all major brands as well as 28 days paid holiday, fully 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.
