“This transitional period is a great time to join us, to be part of this exciting new venture from the start, working with us to ensure that every service user receives the same excellent standard of care as all our existing service users enjoy.

New members of staff will receive a full induction, paid training and the opportunity to complete a diploma in health and social care.
