Join Barnsley’s care sector

Here in Barnsley, we’re committed to putting people at the heart of everything we do and making sure everyone can access high-quality care and support when they need it.

If you’re looking for a new challenge, love helping others and want to make a difference in someone’s life, we want to hear from you!

Your skills and caring nature could truly change the lives of the people we care for and their families, helping them lead happy, healthy lives and continue doing the things they love.

Our brilliant care professionals provide a range of support, whether that’s in someone’s home, out in our communities or helping people in a care home.

What we’re looking for

There’s a wide range of care roles available in Barnsley, all offering opportunities to learn, develop and grow. For many of our roles, you don’t need any previous experience.

If you have the right caring qualities, we can teach you the rest.
