Does it matter that I don’t have care experience?
For most of our Support Worker jobs, no it doesn’t matter at all. We’re looking for people with warmth and a willingness to learn, and who share our values. Many of our best Support Workers have come to us from other jobs and careers or with no experience at all. For our more senior or specialist roles, relevant experience will be necessary and this will be set out clearly in the advert.
I have experience caring for a relative, will this count?
Absolutely! The lessons you learn caring for a relative will be invaluable for you at MacIntyre. We often find that people with this family background can be especially creative and resilient.
