Looking for a career in care? Unsure on where to start? This blog may just provide the help you need. At Kare Plus, we are often asked about the skills needed to begin a career in healthcare. If you’re interested in a homecare position, your previous background and skills aren’t as important as if you are interested in helping people within your community, then a career in healthcare could be for you. There are lots of routes into a career in this sector.
Depending on where you’re based, a branch near you may offer homecare positions that don’t always require experience. We offer ongoing training and development at all of our branches across the country. Yes, some of our positions do require experience, but this isn’t always the case.
Kare Plus supply fully trained and compliant healthcare professionals in to multiple healthcare settings across the UK. Kare Plus’ mission is to deliver outstanding nursing, care and support to local communities, nationally. We want those across our communities to be empowered to live their lives how they choose and with our help, improve their quality of life.
Kare Plus has a rigorous recruitment process to ensure we find suitable individuals to fulfil our clients’ needs, quickly. The extensive recruitment and compliance process used by Kare Plus ensures that we employ suitable healthcare professionals with the appropriate skills (depending on the role) and qualities to strengthen our teams. This can often be the time consuming and frustrating part of any business and it needs to be done well.
At Kare Plus, we work alongside healthcare providers in both local government and within the private sector to support:
- Private Hospitals
- Nursing Homes
- Residential Care Homes
- Health Centres
- GP Practices
- Learning Difficulty Services
- Mental Health Services
- People in their own homes
All successful applicants will undergo an in-house induction programme to ensure that they are aware of and can meet the expectation of the organisation. Requirements often include a DBS check, proof of identity, reference and employment history. This varies depending on the branch and what they require.
If you’re an experienced healthcare professional looking to try something new, or if you don’t have experience but you would love a career in care, we may have something for you.
