This post involves working across Fernlea Services, which can include Support at Home, Care Home, Night Shift, and Day Support.   Hours and shifts can be offered to fit with the availability of the applicant and the needs of the service.

Whilst we value previous experience, this is not essential.  We recognise that many potential applicants will have no previous formal experience in care work.  However, they will have the required transferable skills to successfully work in a caring role.    Support will be given to these individuals, both during the application process and in the initial stages of employment. 

Working within the Social Care Sector can bring great satisfaction for both staff and service users. Therefore, if you are interested in working with people, have good interpersonal and communication skills, and a fair degree of personal resilience, then Fernlea would welcome your application.
