What is it like to work at Springcare?

Here is what one of our valued Cooks said- “It gives me a great sense of satisfaction to know that our residents enjoy home cooked food keeping a sense of familiarity in their lives”.

We are a family run group of Residential and Nursing homes in Shropshire, Cheshire and The Wirral and we want you to join our Springcare family. We are proud to be an equal opportunities employer, who strives to provide a healthy and respectful work culture.

You will be responsible for organising, preparing, and serving appetising and freshly produced food, whilst maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and health and safety.
