WORKERS in Wales looking for a change of career are being invited to contact a care agency that provides services across Wales this month (April, 2017).
Abacare has more than 30 carer positions it is looking to fill across the country and is asking anyone interested in switching professions to get in touch.
Peter Angelides, CEO at Abacare, said: “We have care worker vacancies, including live-in positions, for people looking for a career change in Bangor, Newtown, Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) and Ystragynlais and the surrounding areas.
“Being a carer is a very rewarding job and gives people the opportunity to carve a career for themselves.
“Every successful applicant receives 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.
“We also offer the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF), formerly known as National Vocational Qualifications, to all our team members who show commitment, reliability and true passion. We provide a great support network for all of our carers.
“Being reliable is key to this role as people will be looking after the needs of vulnerable adults. Applicants also need to be even tempered and caring and must enjoy making a positive difference to people’s lives.
“Being patient, able to cope with change and having the ability to display empathy and warmth are also essential.”
