What you bring to Walfinch
The right attitude is more important to us than previous experience or qualifications – though of course we value all the experience you can bring.
Experienced or not, we look for people who pass the mum test.
When recruiting we always ask ourselves, “Would I like this person looking after my mum?” Only if we are confident that we would, do we continue with the recruitment process. That means if you come and work with us, your colleagues will be people like you – caring, compassionate, responsible, practical and with a great sense of humour.
You’ll need your own transport and driving licence, and you’ll be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks. We’re flexible and diverse, we have carers of all ages, genders, and backgrounds.
