Q. Do you provide training?
A. Yes, we provide both yearly refresher courses and full courses for beginners or if your training is a few years out of date.
Q. Where are you based?
A. We are based in the heart of Reading, Berkshire. With our office being in the town centre it is easily accessible by Car, Train or Bus.
Q. How do I apply?
Q. How long will it take to find me a placement?
A. Once you have completed your application form, come in for an interview and complete a DBS form (Formally CRB) we will apply for your references. As soon as we have your DBS, references and providing all your training is up to date, we can start sending you to work this process will take around 2 – 3weeks. If your training is outdated that is not a problem, we will just need you to complete it before sending you on assignments, this may take slightly longer, although we can place you on the training whilst waiting for your references to come back. So it shouldn’t take much longer than 3 – 4 weeks.
**Please note the longer it takes your previous employers to send through your reference, the longer the wait will be**
Q. Do I need Qualifications / Experience?
A. Ideally you will have a minimum of 6 months experience in the care industry – UK based. If not we can place you on all of the relevant training courses and send you out on some shadow shifts, as long as your knowledge in the interview after your training is to our standards and the manager of the care home where you did your shadow shifts signs you off, and of course after we have done all of our relevant checks – References, DBS – then you will be ready to work, this will take longer, roughly 1 – 2 Months.
