Staff Recruitment & Development

Harmony Healthcare recognise the importance of investing in staff recruitment and skill development as part of our care provision.

Staff are recruited using a vigorous recruitment process that uses competency assessments, interviews, DBS and reference checking to ensure that the best health care professionals join our team.

We believe it is essential that our carers receive full training to help them cope with every eventuality. This is why at Harmony Healthcare we enrol all our staff on a comprehensive training and development programme that ensures staff have the right knowledge, skills and behaviours to meet all Client’s needs.

Before our care professionals start work, we provide “shadowing” where they will be observed and monitored by more experienced carers. This provides our staff with the opportunity to watch, listen and learn as well as put into practice some of the skills they have learned already, to ensure our staff continues to develop in their role.

If you’re interested in joining us as a professional carer please register on the website or call our Recruitment Team. 

Our recruitment team will screen your application and  you will be invited for an interview. This is a great opportunity for us get to know you better and for you to get to know us.  We will answer all of your questions and learn more about your skills and experiences.  We will discuss the role you have applied for and give you as much information as possible about us.

Once your interview date and time is confirmed we will notify you. Before your interview, we will ask that you complete our online application form and submit your candidate details to assist with your application.

When confirming your interview, by phone or face-to-face, we’re going to request your paperwork which enables us to apply for your DBS and references.  Due to the nature of the work with vulnerable people it’s necessary to complete these regulated checks as soon as possible.  If you have any questions, please let us know and your recruiter will assist.
