Do you want to make a difference and become a part of how great Community Care should be delivered? Have you heard it all before? Customer continuity, set calls, work life balance, client information prior to your visit AND no phone calls on your day off?

Our Willows Team are offering all of this! Sound too good to be true? Come and see it for yourself!

Willows is a new service that has been tried and tested offering bespoke packages to our customers based on their individual needs. Our new way of working allows you the opportunity to visit the same customers at the same time each week, enabling you to provide true person centred care.

On top of all of this we are giving every member of our team a smartphone which not only provides you with your customers’ care plan before you even step into their house, it also gives you the chance to view your rota in advance so you can plan ahead!

• An individual who is passionate about providing quality person centred care

As one of the largest not-for-profit care providers in the South of England, we offer great career opportunities within a supported and reputable environment.

Benefits of working with us:
• A smartphone including brand new technology that allows you to view your customers’ care plan before you make your visit and view your rota in advance
• Excellent rates of pay and fantastic benefits
• A fully paid induction accompanied by a structured career path with achievable goals and free criminal records check
