Training and development

We are committed to ensuring that you get a comprehensive induction programme based on your skills and experience. You will also receive ongoing training and development throughout your career with us that will help you to fulfil your career ambitions and help us to deliver the highest quality care.

Ops. Support Manager,
Care South at Home

I came into care during my 40’s, starting at Talbot View as a night care assistant.  After five years in residential care, I joined our Care at Home service based in Bournemouth.  I have progressed through roles including supervisor, co-ordinator and registered manager.  I am now operations support manager, providing guidance and advice to all our Care at Home offices.

I passionately believe that everyone deserves access to outstanding care, which I believe we provide. I have enjoyed being given the opportunity in all my roles to contribute to achieving this.
