When my life took an unexpected turn, it made me evaluate everything, including my job. Starting my own Companionship Led Care & Support Service for older adults was the best thing I could have ever achieved and has given me so much reward and satisfaction. The fact we have won several awards and are rated “Outstanding” by CQC gives me immense pride.
As an award-winning organisation, we take the welfare of our Care Assistants very seriously indeed. Your role will be to nurture, support, engage and inspire the team, whilst cascading our very high company values and ethos.

You will very much be a visible presence in the community, and you will be able to relate to a Care Assistant who needs your support or is having a bad day or struggling with the emotions that this job can bring. You will bring your wisdom of experience of working in the sector and ensure our Care Assistants feel supported and thrive in their role.
