Would you make a great care worker?

We’re looking for people who are kind, caring and compassionate.  You don’t have to have care experience; we will support you to gain knowledge through training and increase your confidence by nurturing you so that you can provide the highest quality care to patients who are at the end of their lives and to support them and their family at home.  What’s in it for you?  The opportunity to join a caring and supportive team, to make a real difference to families at a challenging time and to achieve immense job satisfaction.

Working for a charitable organisation can make a big difference to your role; we put the people we support first. 

Why do our staff love this role?

  •  "I like meeting people and helping them at such a vulnerable time in their lives."
  •  "I love the experience of connecting with people for a common outcome."
  •  "I enjoy the variety - no two days are the same."
