Who are we?

People with learning disabilities and their families are at the heart of everything we do.

What support will I receive?

We provide a full induction and training programme when you join us. In addition to regular 1-2-1s and annual appraisals, we’ll help you develop and progress your career. 

You don’t need to have any experience for most of our roles. With a range of training opportunities, access to our career development programme - Aspire - and our skills development programme - Learning Connect, you’ll be well supported in your new role and well on your way to achieving your career goals.  

Everyone who works for us is trained to meet mandatory and essential standards and you’ll find we train our colleagues beyond the minimum requirements. Within your first week of employment, you’ll be invited to start your induction journey. 

We have our own learning academy. Alongside some face-to-face learning, you will complete a majority of your mandatory training online and learn a variety of topics, including health and safety and fire safety at work. All our courses are regularly updated so your knowledge will always be at the forefront of the sector. 

So what are you waiting for? If you’re excited by the opportunity to make a real and meaningful difference in the lives of others, there’s no better industry than social care, and in our opinion, no better organisation than Dimensions! Apply today!
