“I prefer working in a more hands on community role, where I can see how what I do makes a real difference. I love the challenge and learn so much working within the team. Everyone is so different and we work with individuals, so overcoming every situation, is a learning experience.”
All training is delivered in line with relevant, current legislation as well as company policies and procedures.
Each employee will have a clearly defined development plan agreed between the individual and their line manager and focused on the areas that increase the individual’s capability but also on their career path and progression. We want to invest in our people and offer them a fulfilling long term role in healthcare.
You can join Active Care Group with or without experience, as we will ensure you obtain the right training to do the job.
Initially you will undertake our mandatory induction programme.

“I caught up with Steven this morning, who mentioned that he is very impressed with the way Active work. From recruitment, HR and Training, through to contact regarding his start date, he feels that we seem very organised and he is extremely grateful for all the support he has received thus far. He thinks it is exceptional and is looking forward to working with us.”
“I learned some new skills and have received excellent training and support. The co-ordination team has been also fantastic, very helpful and pro-active!”
“I thought I would drop you an email to let you know how happy our candidate A was with the recruitment process. She said she has applied for jobs elsewhere across Essex, but nowhere were as nice as here at Active Assistance. A felt welcomed from the start and she said there were little things that matter the most.”
“Can I just mention that Active Assistance is a lovely company to work for. The help from office staff has been outstanding.”
