For domicillary care workers, you may be required to wear a tabbard that we provide. Soome service users do not like staff to wear a uniform while others do.

To some degree, we have permanent, temporary and zero hours contracts to suit the services we provide. We will normally ask what hours you would like to work during the recruitment process and if successful we will endevour to operate within this as best we can.

However the support we provide is completely flexible and tailored around each individual, so this can change and we do expect a degree of flexibility with our staff to enable us to provide the best service we can.
