Your Career

Welcome to Pineshield Care. If you’re looking to build a career in social care or whether you are an experienced social care worker seeking a new challenge, this page of the website has information about the job opportunities available at Pineshield.

More and more people need support to live the life they choose in comfort and safety. Our team of dedicated staff are there to provide the tailored support that each one of our customers requires. Working with vulnerable people, whether they’re elderly, have a physical or learning disability or mental health issues, can be challenging but it’s also very satisfying to make a real difference to someone. As a social care worker, you’re an important part of our customers’ and their families lives which requires mutual trust and commitment.

A career in social care is not for everyone - it takes a particular kind of person to work in an environment where no two days are the same and often involve unsociable hours. Our staff aren’t just dedicated to providing great care, they are committed, professional and extremely hard working. We want to help our staff build careers with us and we always look to promote from within the company where appropriate. We have numerous examples where individuals, supported by training and mentoring, have been promoted into new roles that progress their careers. So, if you’re committed to a career with us, your very first job could lead you to many different roles in social care that build your skills and experience.

We’ve been a part of the Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan community for over 15 years and strongly believe in supporting it whenever we can. We’re a proud supporter of the Alzheimer’s Society, hosting a cupcake day to raise funds for their excellent work. And our annual coffee morning in support of the Macmillan Cancer ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ is not only an opportunity to support this tremendous organisation but a chance for our staff to have a well-deserved break and indulge their sweet tooth.

So, if you think you have what it takes to become a member of our great social care team, find out more about the roles available.
