At Bellcare we understand that starting a new job can be a bit daunting, even for those who have experience of working in the care industry, this is why we allocate you a mentor right at the beginning of your induction training. Your Mentor will be there for you if you have any questions, they will work with your team managers and trainers to ensure that you are getting the right support and experience throughout the 3-month probationary period, but it doesn't stop there, we understand that everyone is different and will need different support plans over different lengths of time so they can become the best that they can be, after all it's what the people that we support deserve.      

For those new employees who excel at their new role, we can accelerate their personal development plan to include different skills and experiences as some of us thrive on new challenges.
