About the employer

We are a domiciliary care company that provides care in peoples home. Our office is the main hub and backbone of the company to allow our carers to achieve their daily work. We operate between Stowmarket and Ipswich, but our office is based in Stowmarket, approx. 2 minutes from the train station. Within our office we have 3 members of staff that work daily and we have a very friendly, open door policy. Care staff pop in when they need items to support their work, along with some clients and their family, (some just pop in and say hello). We always have food and drinks in the office for anyone to access, along with a fridge, microwave and other items. Our office is in a shared building, so have access to a full kitchen and bathrooms. We also have a training room, where staff can also access a quiet area and a computer. As we have a family friendly environment, we often have our dogs in the office, so any applicant will need to not be allergic, and happy with this, they are very good and mainly sleep. Any more information can be requested.
