Amelia and Erica are just a couple of the incredible student CareGivers that love working for Kingsway Care. Let’s find out why.
Amelia is a Medical Student at Brighton and Sussex Medical School and has been working for Kingsway Care since 2022. She says
“It’s brilliant, really useful. I can learn something for an hour in a lecture about Parkinsons or dementia and then come to work and see it in reality. I already recommended my fellow student, Erica to join Kingsway Care and have just recommended somebody else.”
“Hi, my name is Erica. I’m a second-year medical student at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, and I’ve been working here at Kingsway Care for three months now. They’re a really great company that works well with students, allowing them to choose their hours of availability. I work on Saturdays, which fits perfectly with my busy medics schedule.
Kingsway Care is also a very caring company that values your opinion, whether it’s related to your role as a CareGiver or the Clients you interact with. Having a job in the care field really is an invaluable experience for students pursuing medical-based degrees. Oh, and the bright yellow uniform is fantastic!”
