Who are we?

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. 😊. Currently 13 of us; 4 of whom joined last year, including 2 returners; and between us we’ve delivered 54 years of exceptional care to our clients (who are clustered in and around Church Stretton and Craven Arms).

‘For someone my age, 23 years old I am being paid £6 per hour more than most of my friends my age. I’m not just here for the money, I really enjoy my job too’. (New Dawn Care Assistant, Abbie).

Our hiring process:
  1. You read this ad
  2. It piques your interest or makes you want to disprove our claims
  3. You tell us you're interested (phone or apply online) we arrange an informal phone chat (with Rachel or Steph)
  4. You get to decide about our no obligation ‘Try before you Apply’, taster shift
  5. You come on in and meet us and get to find out if all the things we say are true

One more thing. You don’t need to dress up, refresh your cv or study up on anything. Just be you😊.

New Dawn Care Assistants support clients 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Traditionally first calls have been at 07.00 and last calls finished at 22.00. However, to be easier on our staff, we’re looking towards 08.00 starts and 21.30 finishes. Each day there’s a gap in care delivery (between 14.00 and 16.30).

We very much look forward to hearing from you😊
