Why work for us?
Melody Care has been a successful provider of care for 10 years and we continually focus on the quality of care for both our clients and our carers.
Melody Care's Recruitment Process is not stressful or pressurised. It is about us finding out about you and you finding out about us. We believe recruitment is a two-way process and we want you to have all the information you need to ensure a move to Melody Care is right for you. So find out about us! What we stand for, how we treat our employees - we want to develop an open and collaborative partnership with our New Joiners. Could you be one of them?
At Melody Care, we have a dedicated professional team who stand to provide high-quality care and we care deeply, about who we select to provide it.
We are an ambitious company for our clients and our staff. We want to offer the stability of care to our clients with strong teams who enjoy working with us.
We always offer growth and development with a focus on a building a positive team environment, working for the benefit of each other and our clients.
We have 4 branches, each covering their own local areas. Our carers stay local to their branches - they tell us they enjoy this more than travelling long distances. We listened to our carers and they benefit every day by working in areas they know.
Our branches are based in:
