We believe men make great carers

Working within care offers flexibility, job satisfaction and opportunities to develop and gain qualifications.

 

We’re passionate about breaking down the barriers to men choosing a career in care. We believe that being a good carer isn’t about gender, it’s about treating people with dignity and showing compassion and respect.

It’s important that those providing care are as diverse as the people they support. A career in care offers job security, progression, flexibility and the opportunity to give back to your community.

 

“You make a difference to people’s lives and every day is different.”

After I was made redundant from my job in hospitality, I decided to apply for a role in care.  I was starting a family at the time and a career in care gave me the job security I needed.

After few years, I was promoted to the role of Deputy Manager. I really enjoy the fact that every day is different.

“I love doing three 12-hour shifts, I have all that free time to put to other things.”

I previously worked as a bank manager and became a care assistant three years ago. I really value the flexibility care offers me; it gives me time outside of work to pursue my interests including photography.

I’m on the go all the time in my role and I’ve lost 3 stone as a result!  I feel very proud to tell people I’m a carer, making a difference in residents’ lives each day.

“The training I’ve had over the years has been amazing

I was a scaffolder before I decided to pursue a career in care. I applied for a role with Hafod and haven’t looked back since!

I find my role very fulfilling, my colleagues at Gwynfa are fantastic and have always been there to support me.

I really enjoy helping residents get their independence back, seeing them smile or do something they’ve never done before.
