Broadfield Care Services recognise and know the excellent reputation that they have within the community is down to the managers, supervisors and care staff that deliver a high standard of quality care to people in their own homes.

 

That is why all staff recruited are subject to a rigorous background check and must be prepared to undertake all the training that the company deems necessary for them to keep the high standard of quality care that we are known for.

 

Training

Each new recruit completes a company application form, two references from past and present employers are obtained both verbal and written, at the interview stage the experience, qualifications, past and current work history is discussed, applicants must  have an enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) check, we will not employ anyone who’s past record show that they have been barred from a previous employer that would present a risk to our clients.

 

Our Induction Course and Mandatory training is delivered by our dedicated in-house training Manager.  For specialist courses we use reputable training companies.
