Why work for ENA?
We believe in enabling our clients to achieve a high level of independence by providing high-quality, person-centred care, and using the ‘mum’ test in everything we do.
We ensure everyone’s needs are fostered by applying good listening skills, a caring nature and showing compassion and empathy for every one of our clients.
We always aspire to greater things, by listening to feedback and using the things we learn to build on our services.
If you are new to care or have very little experience, you would be placed with a lesser needs client. This means you would be paid towards the lower end of the scale.
If you have more experience and skills that would be beneficial to a higher or complex needs client, you would be paid towards the higher end of the scale.
Your pay rate will be agreed with you by your case manager before each placement.
