Premier Community Services considers its management team and employees to be the key ingredient in the delivery of a quality service and we strongly believe a competent workforce ensures good standards. Therefore, we provide opportunities for all staff to train to a high standard, gaining qualifications in all aspects of care enabling them to further develop their career, within the Company.
Each one of our carers has been personally interviewed, screened, hold DBS checks (Disclosure and Barring Service checks) and ISA’s and have achieved or are working towards NVQ Level 2 in ‘Care’ or hold equivalent qualifications. All employees undertake mandatory updates and refresher courses, however we also encourage carers to attend courses that will enhance their role as an effective carer.
Any new employees joining us are expected to attend an Induction – which follows a comprehensive training programme, and to complete a period of ‘shadowing’ with a Senior Carer or one of our experienced community care workers.
We are a ‘Member of the Association Of Healthcare Trainers’, which means we not only invest in our staff training so they can reach their full potential, but also to provide excellent working conditions, which can only have a positive effect in building and maintaining effective working relationships. We feel that by the encouragement of effective working relationships, we can maintain our successful record in the recruitment and retention of staff.
Performance management systems and refresher course are put in place for all staff, in order to ensure compliance with legislation and to maintain company standards.
We are able to offer employment to a variety of age groups, as well as promoting the opportunity for people to maybe change their direction and come and work within the ‘care’ profession. Our approach to employees is one of inclusion, we all work as a team, we encourage staff to develop in their roles, to take responsibility and further their careers if they so choose.
However, what is fundamental to their role is a caring attitude and nature. We believe at Premier Community Services, we have the right combination; a motivated, experienced and above all caring compassionate workforce.
