The award-winning team will be more than happy to take any enquiries and any new care worker will be inducted and trained with the best of inhouse training.

Required Education, Skills and Qualifications
We are happy to speak to anybody looking to either get into care for the first time right through to people who have been in the industry for years. You might only want a few hours a week to pass the time, we would live to hear from you.
Full training is provided for anyone joining Caremark and for those looking to further themselves, we offer extra opportunities with training specialists.
One of our care workers had this to say about Caremark’s extra training programme:
“I joined Caremark with no experience in care. The training I received gave me the confidence I needed to do a great job for their customers. I want to be a paramedic so these experiences were invaluable and look great on my CV. They enrolled me on my level 3 in Health and Social Care and I have recently completed it. It’s nice that a company really takes an interest in its employees.”
