We’re good at what we do - and your work will be rewarding and make a real difference to you and the individuals you care for.
We value you and your life choices, and respect your needs and priorities as well as those of our clients.
We’re small enough to care personally about every member of our team as individuals.
We make it our priority to support you properly support through relevant ongoing training and management infrastructure.
Whether you have a Care Certificate, a Level 2 Diploma or higher in Health and Social Care or no qualifications in care to date, our 3 steps to joining the team couldn’t be easier.

We’ll get in touch. The next step is a more detailed form and references.
An interview is arranged, usually within a week (where appropriate).
Job offers follow within 2-3 days, subject to DBS checks carried out and paid for by Rose Care.
All new staff undergo 2 weeks’ paid induction training. Uniform and PPE is provided at this point too. The induction period includes some classroom learning, generally in our own dedicated training room in Felixstowe. It also includes shadowing current Rose Care professional carers. Feedback from the role-shadowing informs further training needs.
Supervision sessions are every week for the first 4 weeks for new staff, then every 12 weeks.
Our open door policy also means that you can discuss concerns, ideas, issues and ask for help and support whenever you need it.
Care Sector Qualifications are supported for your competence and confidence.
If you’re new to the care sector, we’ll support you to achieve your Care Certificate (15 units, assessed through observations) and beyond if you wish. If you join with a Level 2 Diploma, we will support and encourage you to progress further.
No training costs are born by the employee at any time. Should training sessions (eg. in using specialist equipment/ manual handling training) take place at other locations (Ipswich), transport is provided.
Your professional development and personal wellbeing really matters to us. We will support you, so you can deliver your best, be proud of what you do and feel rewarded for your efforts. Delivering the highest quality of reliable care to individuals in their own home is our shared goal.
You will have ongoing regular supervisions and yearly appraisals as standard, but team leader and management team doors remain open whenever you have something to discuss.
Outline mandatory courses and refresher courses are provided as required.
For specialist skills in particular areas of care (eg palliative care / dementia care), the Rose Care team will support you in your areas of interest, offering you encouragement, practical support and advice where appropriate.
Rose Care has an impressive staff retention record which is a key contributing factor to the success of our Felixstowe home care company. We put this down to the family approach within our team and our ongoing professional development support.
Our combination of thorough training and work-placement shadowing gives comprehensive support to those new to a role as a carer.
Being a home carer is different to doing care work in a nursing home or care home.
The care you will give can be very wide-ranging, at times quite specialized, at others as simple as sharing some company or encouraging and enabling someone to do an everyday task.
At Rose Care, we are with you every step of the way to becoming a competent and confident carer.
Our thorough training programme for home carers typically includes:
• How to do personal care
• Manual handling (moving/ positioning)
• Fire Safety
• First Aid
• Food Hygiene
• Policies and Procedures
Looking for rewarding work, full of the satisfaction that you’re making a difference?
