Careers in Care

Would you like to join the Freedom Care Team?

Adult social care is a growing sector, and Freedom Care is expanding all  the time, we offer a wide range of rewarding careers, with many different job roles, and lots of opportunities for progression.

If you want a career where you can progress, have job security, and get an enormous sense of personal achievement from knowing you are helping other people, then working here at Freedom Care is for you.

Freedom Care is a family run business established in 2002.  We have a service in Leicester which is home to 13 service users.

We also have residential homes in Shepshed, Loughborough and East Leake.  The Chantry is the largest within the group as previously, our placements have been for between 1 and 3 service users.  We have tried to retain the ‘homely’ feel in The Chantry and feel proud that visitors often comment about how it ‘doesn’t feel like a care home’.

All our staff work with service users on either a 1:1 or 2:1 basis, this means there will be frequent times during the week where you will be ‘lone working’ For more information about Freedom Care; Our Vision, Our Mission, Our Values, Shift Patterns, Contracts of Employment and much more please click here>Freedom Care Information Sheet

We are a business that is continually evolving and we plan to continue with the growth and progression of the Company.  If you are looking for a career in care and want to help shape Freedom Care into a business which provides only the highest levels of individualised care, our Management Team will work with you to nurture and develop your skills.
