Work for us

Working for Leading Lives offers many opportunities in social care as we provide many different types of support enabling people to gain a broad range of experience.  We operate at the more skilled and specialised end of the social care market and train our staff accordingly.  We encourage professional development and invest in internal and external training with staff gaining The Care Certificate on completion of their formal induction process and are expected to gain further NVQ qualifications.


There is a genuine sense of camaraderie and we are a happy, positive place to work where people can draw on their own talents and enthusiasm.  We offer flexible working and the opportunity to gain experience across many different aspects of social care.

We are a not-for-profit business so our trading surplus is re-invested back into services for our customers or into the local community through our Community Benefit Fund.
