The directors have immense drive and passion for the care industry which I find highly motivating. I look forward to achieving our future goals and watching the company continue to grow whilst feeling valued and cared for as a Safehands employee.
Safehands have been very accommodating with flexibility around my children, so much so that after 9 months I went full time. All the staff and directors have been so encouraging and supportive to enable me to further my career again. In the 18 months I have been here, I have seen the company grow and grow which is very motivating and I feel privileged to be part of a fast developing, caring company.
