On the 15th of March 2022, the Department of Health & Social Care withdrew the regulations so that people working in care homes are no longer required to have received the Covid-19 vaccinations.
Supporting individuals who have behaviours that challenge can be difficult on occasion. That’s why we employ people who are compassionate, kind, and patient to be able to create an environment that is both safe and fun. Being a Support Worker allows you to help enrich the lives of individuals with complex needs and help them achieve their full potential which is why the role is rewarding.
Depending on the current vacancies available, we offer flexible working hours including bank, part-time, and full-time roles. Please get in touch with the homes directly or contact us to find out more.
You will have the opportunity to complete eLearning and get paid for it, all before your first official day with Glenholme! Once you start working, your manager will always let you know at least two weeks ahead of time if there is a face-to-face training you need to attend. The training will usually take place when you are scheduled to come in for work anyways.
Glenholme works with a variety of skilled trainers internally and externally. We use a company called Your Hippo for eLearning. There are also senior members of staff and managers who are qualified trainers too!
Glenholme is committed to supporting staff in their career development. After your first six months with us, you will have the opportunity to pursue a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in Health and Social Care. This is funded through employer contributions and the UK government’s apprenticeship service, so you can focus on learning!
We are also expanding so have real opportunities for career development for a rewarding long-term career. We value our staff and work hard to develop their skills through the provision of continuous training and support.
