B&M Care Careers
A career within social care is simply more than just a job, and whilst its exposure to people, progression and flexibility are often appealing, the principles of delivering exceptional care makes it a rewarding opportunity that flourishes positive difference to an individual’s health and wellbeing.
Working within social care is to work within a diverse environment, one that promotes interest, productivity, and above all, variety. In more practical terms, no one day is ever the same when working in a care home setting – every person or situation you encounter will be uniquely different. But aside from contrasting the repetitive demand of other sectors, the essence of variety inspires long-term opportunity and development, and because of its vocational qualities, many staff learn a lot of what they do through actually doing it. What this means is that social care staff are adaptable, experienced, and equipped with a number of transferable skills to use in other areas of the business – or even in life outside of work.
No one in social care works in isolation – being a member of a care team means that you are part of a community that inspires connections, relationships, and an opportunity to work with like-minded people who share your values and goals.
This essence of collective spirit is what B&M Care proudly promotes in each of our homes. Find out below why we continue to strive to be an employer of choice.

Training and Development at B&M Care
As a new starter, B&M Care takes the time to support and nurture your skills, whilst instilling relevant learning across all aspects of a role. Each member of staff undertakes a 12-week induction programme comprising of both mandatory and statutory training.

And beyond this core learning, staff are actively encouraged to diversify their skillset in specialist areas of interest where they can later use this to become a ‘champion’ or as part of their career development.
All training is underpinned by the group’s Rose Model of Dementia Care – a unique model of care that advocates best practice in those who care for those in our homes.

“The training and development at B&M Care has consistently given me the skills and confidence to grow within the group. Since joining B&M Care in 2014, the group’s commitment to individual development has seen me flourish success in three care homes, and now at Head Office as part of the Operations Management Team. The Leadership Pathway really supported me in my journey to becoming a Home Manager, and even more so in my current role.”
