Abacare gives the gift of employment this Christmas
CARING and kind natured Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) residents who are looking for a job can sign up with Abacare to become a Care Worker and be in a position by Christmas (December, 2017).
The award-winning care agency has 30 roles to fill and is looking for caring, honest and reliable individuals to join its team.
Sarah Williams, Registered Manager at Abacare, which has offices in RCT, said: “It is currently our busiest time of the year, so we are searching for kind and caring individuals who are looking for employment, to join us and they could be in a position by Christmas, with a view to a career in the industry in future.
“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) after the initial six months probationary period.
“New recruits are given free uniforms, access to national staff discount scheme for all major brands as well as 28 days paid holiday, 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 job seeker. 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.”
