Our home care service at our developments in the Scottish Borders is just one example of how we do this. Due to its success, we’re evolving the service and are looking for enthusiastic and caring staff to fill a range of posts to help us ensure we can carry on providing quality care.

In return for delivering a fantastic service to our customers, you’ll be a part of an Investors in People and Investors in Diversity organisation. We’re one of the sector’s most forward-thinking organisations that strongly values its staff and its customers.
