Why work for us?

Prestige Nursing + Care Manchester are the leading 'Complex Care' provider to private Case Management companies and NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups in the Greater Manchester area. We have grown year on year over the last 10 years because we have built an excellent reputation for caring for male and female adults of all ages who are looking to continue their rehabilitation at home. You will be working alongside a team of privately employed professionals and following through with rehab plans as outlined by them, so you work will be integral to the client's development.

The team at the branch are always friendly and supportive resulting in a happy and loyal workforce, which is proven by our excellent staff retention.

Experience of working with these types of clients is desired, but not essential, as we will provide you with all the specialist training you need for working with the client.

The work will be challenging and rewarding, which with our help will help you grow and develop as a Support Worker / Carer.
