If you care for others without a second thought and are looking for a rewarding career, where you can make a difference and change lives for the better, then join St. Neots Neurological Centre as a Support Worker and enjoy a £750 welcome bonus and weekend enhancements!

Whether you are looking for a new career or already work in healthcare through the NHS or private sector, you'll receive training to join the team, where you will be valued and supported, with career development opportunities available.
