Our customers have many varied interests including a walk in the park, a trip to a coffee shop, a ride out on the bus, or going to the local gym to enjoy a swim and the steam room. Visiting and spending time with their family is hugely important to them too and they are looking for a team who will share their interests as well as encourage and support them to participate in lots of new activities too!  Their home is on a lovely quiet road with lots of shops, great bus routes and a train station nearby, perfect for the commute or a day out.

Our building is currently being renovated, with each flat being bespoke to the customer moving in and set within a beautiful old building with a big garden (which has lots of space to grow plants or veg if our customers fancy that!).  It will be ready for our customers to move in by mid-2021.

About you

We also welcome applications from candidates who are able to support the diversity of our customers including a Muslim and Hindu customer as well as candidates who are able to speak Bangali.

You’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service which we’ll pay for.
