At NWCS we recognise that our employees are our most valuable asset when it comes to delivering high quality services to the people we support. We know how important it is to recruit people with the right attitude and values to ensure our standards are maintained.

We are keen to employ people who have a real commitment and passion to support disabled people, maximise their independence and support elderly people who need extra care to remain in their own homes.  We recruit people from a variety of backgrounds, with different skills and interests and match them to the people they will be supporting.

We provide a full induction training programme for all employees, regular supervision and on-going training to support our employee's continuous professional development.  Once an employee has successfully completed their probationary period they will be encouraged to gain further qualifications in Health and Social Care.

We encourage career progression within the company giving staff developmental opportunities to gain additional skills and qualifications that will enable them to apply for more senior roles within the company when vacancies arise.

 

An enhanced DBS disclosure will be required as we are committed to providing a secure and safe environment for our staff and the people we support.

We have a number of Support / Care Worker roles which are interesting, varied and are extremely rewarding.  Most of our support / care worker roles will involve providing some form of personal care but this varies depending on the service and the needs of the person or people you will be supporting.


A Support Workers role usually involves working as part of a staff team supporting people with complex mental health needs or people with learning and / or physical disabilities living in the community who generally need 24 hour support. Most of our Support Worker roles involve working a shift rota over 7 days.    

A Support Workers role may involve working with individuals who need some extra care and support with certain tasks to increase their independence, community networks and improve their overall health and well being.
