Advice to Management
Working with the management have been really positive so far
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Helping Hands Home Care in April 2018.
Telephone and in person interview. 3 days training in a group and if successful wait for references and DBS check. Then shadowing another carer until comfortable to work alone. Longest part was waiting for DBS check to be returned.
