What our staff say

Why is a career in care so rewarding?
I find supporting people to enhance their quality of life is very rewarding. The training opportunities are very good – you can gain and impart knowledge at all levels, and I enjoy working with a team.
Would you recommend PrimeLife?
You can gain good recognition for your work, and progress to higher levels in your career.
I started as a Support Worker, progressing to a Senior within 6 months and now I am a manager with the responsibility of looking after a home with 12 residents and 20 staff have been enjoying this for the past 6 years.
What should a potential candidate know?
You might not think you have it in you, but give it a try. The rewards of just a simple thank you or smile from a resident can bring so much joy.
