Lola Shares Her Staff-in-Training Experience

“I moved into child and youth care from hospitality with little experience, but thankfully that didn’t matter due to the extensive and thorough training Kibble were able to provide me with.

“Kibble recruit people with all different experience as long as they have a drive to help young people.

“The essential requirement is the aspiration to support young people and provide them with a better chance at life – if you have that we will work with you to make sure you have the skills and experience to become the best carer possible.”
