Why work for us?

Extra care services provide comfort, independence and peace of mind. Residents live independently, safe in the knowledge that support is available in their home should they need it. Spacious apartments with on-site communal facilities create an environment where residents can enjoy healthy, active, and independent lifestyles in their later years.

We are seeking a Care and Support Worker to make a real difference to the lives of our residents. Offering extra care apartments to rent, Lawley Bank Court provides independent living, with the reassurance that a dedicated care and support team is on hand when required. If you want to make a positive impact to people’s lives, this is a rewarding opportunity to come and work within an established and experienced team.

We require individuals who are conscientious and committed to delivering a high quality, person centred care and support service. Experience isn’t necessary as we support our staff with excellent training opportunities. It is equally important for us that you are approachable, caring and compassionate.
