Carer requirements include:
- Minimum qualification of QQI (Fetac) level 5 in a health discipline

On starting with the company every Carer undergoes a one-day induction programme which includes:

Before Carers commence care placement they complete shadow training. Shadow training is carried out with the Community Liaison Officer or Client Supervisor. This one to one training instructs carers about their clients’ exact care requirements and routine.
The Care Team value teamwork, working cohesively to provide a streamlined service. Our Carers are supported by the Community Liaison Officers and Client Supervisors regularly, listening to any feedback they may have. Carer appraisals are completed at 8 weeks, 6months and then yearly.
Working for The Care Team gives Carers an option to further grow their healthcare knowledge offering the following course:
- Diabetic care
- Catheter care
- Crisis intervention
- Dementia care
- HACCP – Hazard analysis and critical control points
- PEG care
- Skin integrity
