Knockdene truly cares about the wellbeing of their staff
I have been working with Knockdene for almost a year now and they are an absolutely lovely agency to work for. Have always been there to help me with anything I needed help with and I have always felt like Knockdene truly cares about the wellbeing of their staff and it shows. Would recommend for anyone who has worked in care looking to do agency care work.

Excellent in their communication and delivery
Just joined Knockdene healthcare after endless time spent looking at agencies. They are very professional. Their team is excellent in their communication and delivery of making you feel looked after. As soon as I joined (which was extremely well organised and efficient) I got shifts where I wanted to work. Cannot recommend this team enough. Meets the needs of you as an individual. Would highly recommend.
