"A knock-on effect has resulted in a significant change and growth in social care, which is leading to a broader range of job opportunities in the sector.

"As a result of our growth we are now in need of many more care givers to join our team.

"Although our existing care givers come from a hugely varied background, the one thing they have in common is that they all have a real passion for helping others and caring for people in our local community.

"We provide all the necessary training and are a friendly, supportive team, so professional experience is not essential.

"Whether you are 19 or 99, if you are a caring and compassionate person and would like to find out more about what it's like being a care giver, we want like to hear from you."

Home Instead Senior Care Leek provides home care for individuals in the Staffordshire Moorlands area.

The service on offer is tailored to the needs of individual clients and ranges from companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, convalescence care, personal care, medication reminders, shopping and errands.

Home Instead's service is totally flexible to meet client needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Carol added: "If you think you can bring a ray of sunshine into someone's life, come and speak to us to discover what it's like being a care giver."

The Recruitment Open Day will be held on Thursday, May 8 between 10am and 4pm at Home Instead Leek, Newspaper House, Brook Street, Leek. ST13 5JE.
