Prior to commencing employment all staff are required to complete a comprehensive employment application form which includes health conditions, experience and knowledge. Following an in-depth interview they will be asked to supply references to cover a 5 year biao period, one of which must be from their last employer. At this point we also apply for a Criminal Records Check. Before commencing work they will undergo a thorough induction training which includes all mandatory training – moving and handling training, Medication awareness, basic first aid and many more . After induction they will spend time with a senior member of staff “shadowing” them in the community. This training period is used to evaluate their suitability for the role.
