Sandy is Eden Country Care’s recruitment manager.

“Our interviews are relaxed, friendly and enjoyable. We want to get to know the real you and for you to get to know the real Eden Country Care.

We always tell people not to worry about their interview just relax, be yourself and enjoy it. There’s no trick questions, it’s about you and why you want to come and work for our home care company.

We believe that we can train the right personality to be a great home carer but we can’t train someone to have the right personality”

Please apply and good luck.
