Our team is made up of hairdressers, bar managers, health professionals, students and family members who have made the choice to change careers and have not looked back. We are likeminded, happy people, and we’re from teens to seventies. We’re animal lovers, (sometimes even taking our dogs to work), we love music, ride horses, we’re avid readers, gardeners, and handi-crafters. Above all, we’re a TEAM 😊. Between us we deliver exceptional care to our clients (who are clustered in and around Church Stretton and Craven Arms).
You get all the training you need before you start, so no experience or qualifications are needed. Our quality services are much in demand, so we are always on the look out for kind and caring people to join our friendly care team. You can even TRY BEFORE YOU APPLY – how cool is that?
