JOLEEN Prosser from Mountain Ash has recently (January, 2018) joined an award-winning care company in Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) as one of its new Regional Managers.
In her role Joleen will be responsible for writing service user inductions and service delivery plans, supervision of staff, manual handling assessments and quality reviews of services for the Mountain Ash and Abercynon areas.
Forty-one-year-old Joleen, who previously worked as a Field Supervisor, said: “I am thrilled to have joined the Abacare team and I have so far thoroughly enjoyed my new job here. Everyone is extremely helpful and friendly and I already feel well settled. I am so far enjoying all of the challenges I have faced and I look forward to what the future has to hold for me.
“Joining a company that is committed to promoting from within and helping to advance its employees’ careers was a real attraction to me as I hope to work in the industry for many more years to come.”
Abacare operates a professional Care Management Team that is committed to providing high quality care to individuals in their own homes.
The large team of trained, specialist, care workers provide positive based outcomes and person centred care to people throughout Wales.
Sarah Williams, Registered Manager at Abacare, said: “We’re thrilled to have Joleen join our team of Regional Managers. She has settled in extremely well and taken to her new role with ease. She is a kind and committed individual and we are sure she will go really far in her career with us.
“We’re always looking for caring, honest and reliable individuals to join our team. No experience is necessary to become a carer as we offer free, full training, which includes a company induction, first aid, information on dementia, health and safety, food safety, infection control, handling medication and moving and handling service users, with the opportunity to achieve Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) after the initial six months probationary period.
“New recruits are given free uniforms, access to national staff discount scheme for all major brands as well as 28 days paid holiday, paid travel between calls and paid mileage.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is looking for a career or someone who just fancies a bit of a change. Being a carer is an extremely rewarding job and you get to meet lots of wonderful people too.
“We’re also offering FaceTime or Skype interviews to candidates in order to meet the demands of the modern jobseeker. Our view is that busy people wanting a career change can ‘meet’ us via FaceTime or similar applications and find out about the roles we have to offer, as well as meet a couple of team members and, if they are about, also say ‘hello’ to a carer too.”
