Abacare helps unemployed get back to work

A WELSH care agency has revealed (January 2021) it is offering re-training to unemployed individuals who are looking for work.

 

The award-winning Abacare is looking to re-train people, who have been made unemployed or redundant due to the pandemic, as carers.

 

Neil Griffiths, Regional Manager at Abacare, which has offices in Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) and provides care to people in their own homes in the surrounding areas, said: “It’s been a tough time for people in all sorts of different industries and many individuals have been made redundant or simply unemployed due to the pandemic.

 

“We want to help and believe that offering people re-training in a new industry is a great way to get them back into the working world. Many unemployed people are eager to start work again and we’re looking for anyone who might be interested in re-training for a career in the care industry to get in touch.

 

“Working in care is an extremely rewarding job and people will have the chance to receive free full training, which includes a company induction, dementia awareness, enablement, first aid, health and safety, food safety, infection control, medication, person centred care and moving and handling service users, and for anyone who is committed and passionate about care, we also offer the opportunity to undertake qualifications too.

 

“As long as your kind, committed and caring, you’ll fit right in. We can provide flexible working hours to fit around your lifestyle, so if you need to look after children or grandchildren or just want to work a minimum amount of hours per-week, that’s no problem.”

 

Abacare operates a professional Care Management Team that is committed to providing high quality care to individuals in their own homes.

 

The large team of trained, specialist, care workers provide positive based outcomes and person-centred care to people throughout the UK.

 

Its core values, instilled into every staff member, include ‘make us proud’, ‘focus on our service users’ wellbeing’, ‘communicate, listen well and speak with respect’, ‘be passionate, honest, caring and considerate’, ‘recruit and develop the very best’ and ‘lead by example’.

 

It believes it offers inspiring work for inspirational people.

 

Neil added: “We are fighting against the current economic climate and are filling more positions than ever. This is a great opportunity for those looking for a completely new and exciting opportunity in 2021 to work in this very rewarding role. Being a carer is a really satisfying job and gives people the opportunity to create a worthwhile and long-term career for themselves.”
