Your community needs you!

During the coronavirus pandemic it is more important than ever that we keep people safe and supported across North Yorkshire’s communities. To do this, we need your help at this critical time. 

North Yorkshire is a place where looking out for friends and neighbours is part of daily life and kindness comes naturally. These values are what helps make the county such a special place to live, work and visit.

We know that people will want to help their communities and we’re encouraging people to work for us to make sure we can continue to support vulnerable adults and older people.

Do you want to do more than just show your appreciation by clapping every Thursday for our Health care heroes? If so there has never been a better time to join the care sector and be a hero yourself, whether it be for the short term to help us through the current crisis or if you want a long term career.

We have many permanent vacancies which offer a wide range of opportunities for progression and roles that are as diverse as the people you could support.
Working in care can be challenging, but it’s a career that offers job satisfaction; excellent work life balance and continued training and development as well as the chance to make a difference.

Temporary work is of course also available, so if your current employment is taking a temporary downturn (i.e. retail, hospitality, tourism etc.), you have finished further education studies earlier than anticipated, looking for temporary employment to support you with immediate income, or just keen to do your bit to help the county then please apply immediately.


There are many ways in which you can be help us; you do not need specific experience or expertise in social care to help.  If you are caring and compassionate and willing to get stuck in, we will have a role for you.

Adult Social Care is an invaluable sector, made up of various different areas and professions. It responds to a wide range of needs – from a young adult with a learning disability who needs assistance with daily tasks to an elderly person with dementia who needs emotional support as well as personal care.

It helps people to live as independently as possible, protects people from harm in vulnerable situations and offers essential support in times of need.

Individuals need the maximum degree of choice on how their care is delivered, they need to be able to choose how they live their life. It is about working with people in communities to ensure that they become more resilient and self-sustaining.

No adult has the same needs when it comes to care, so this means various services and provisions work together to ensure individuals receive the level of care they need to meet their personal circumstances.

We need you now. They need you always.

As well providing vital support to the people of North Yorkshire, this is an opportunity to share great moments with your local community, in a supportive and fulfilling environment.

Make a difference to someone’s life and support your community in these most critical of times. 

Work can take place in a variety of settings, residential care facilities (Care Homes), respite care (Day Care Centres), care in peoples own homes, and out in the community.

Every day is different as your work revolves around the people you’re helping.

Experience is not required and full training and support will be provided. To be a success you will be eager to learn and have the ability to deliver vital care and support to those in need.

If you’re are just starting your career and not sure what you want to do, a job in care can be the gateway to a variety of careers and professions. It can help you gain the vital skills and experience you need to progress into nursing, social work, occupational therapy or medicine to name a few.

So why not give it a go?

We operate 24 / 7 and therefore can consider availability for a variety of hours and times.

How can I help?

If this sounds like something you can help us with, please register your interest and apply straight away to discuss how you support your local community.

Don’t delay - your support is critical!
