If you are a carer, or are interested in becoming one, chances are you will already consider it to be a rewarding profession. Cavendish Care goes above and beyond to ensure that its employees reach their true potential.
“I have now worked at Cavendish care for 6 months as the Assistant Activities Coordinator. I was welcomed into the team immediately and have had fantastic support throughout my first few months working here.
I thoroughly enjoy my role delivering many activities for the clients including arts and crafts, discussion, cooking, yoga and many more. Most importantly however, I love to watch our clients/tenants develop their skills to help them towards independence and achieve new things. I’m really looking forward to my future working within the company and the challenges that lie ahead.”

Full training is provided by our Learning and Development Manager at our Training Centre on an ongoing basis.
