Case Studies


Nothing gives me more joy than feeling like I’m changing somebody’s life for the better

Angela Harper
Angela has been working at Candlelight Care as a care and support worker for over twenty years. After losing both her parents in 1995, she decided that she wanted to look after others. She initially took a care job with Candlelight Care as a stop-gap but found it so rewarding that she has worked there ever since. 


Care work - it's rewarding and it opens doors

Lorna Kent
Lorna Kent is the registered manager at Candlelight’s Sherborne branch and has had a career in care for over 20 years. She manages a team of office and care staff and is responsible for ensuring that safe, high-quality care is provided to all clients. 


From care worker to training manager in just a few years

Becky Davies
Becky is Candlelight Care’s training manager and is responsible for a team of staff. Despite not joining the care industry until her mid-twenties, she soon realised it was where she wanted to be and she set her sights on rapid and successful career progression. 


I can't think of any downsides to the job - I love it!

Emily Cook
Emily has been working for Candlelight Care since April 2015. She has already been promoted to Senior Care Worker and balances her busy working life with bringing up her two children.

If I’d have known how much I enjoy caring, I would have done it years ago

Becky Gillett
Becky works at our Uckfield branch and has been with Candlelight for four years. She has two children, aged six and 11 months so she has had to set up a working arrangement with Candlelight that allows her to fulfil her family and work commitments.


I walk through the door and my client says ‘Oh, I’m so glad it’s you

Fantastic hours and flexible working
