Newtown residents looking for a new career for 2018 can sign up to become a carer with an award-winning care provider in the area.

Abacare is hiring staff and wants to hear from caring, honest and reliable people who want to make a career for themselves.

Sam Evans, Registered Manager at Abacare, which provides care across Newtown, said: “The New Year is the opportune time for anyone wanting to make a career change to finally bite the bullet and do it.

“We offer fantastic training and the opportunity for internal advancement. Anyone who joins us is not only getting a new job, they are creating a career path with the different qualifications they can achieve, including QCF level two, three and five, and a vocation for themselves thanks to the very rewarding work they will be carrying out.

“No experience is necessary to become a carer as we offer free, full training, which includes a company induction, first aid, information on dementia, health and safety, food safety, infection control, handling medication and moving and handling service users, with the opportunity to achieve Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) after the initial six months probationary period.

“New recruits are given free uniforms, access to national staff discount scheme for all major brands as well as 28 days paid holiday, paid travel between calls and paid mileage.”

Anyone interested in a position should call 01686 625644 to request an application pack.

Sam added: “Being dependable is key to this role as people will be looking after the needs of vulnerable adults. Applicants also need to be even tempered and caring and must enjoy making a positive difference to people’s lives. 

“Being patient, able to cope with change and having the ability to display empathy and warmth are also essential. Candidates will need to have their own transport and mobile phone.
