There’s a place for everyone.
Beginning your career can be tough. Everyone asks for experience but how do you get a job without experience? At A2Dominion there are opportunities in several areas of the business and through a range of pathways.
Early Years Care & Support programme
Our recently-launched Early Years programme offers roles in our Care & Support function for people who are starting out in their professional lives.
Salaries are among the best in the sector and everyone who enters this programme is able to earn while they learn. We offer a mixture of on-the-job training, development and support – as well as the opportunity to study towards a professional qualification.
This is a great opportunity for people who are coming to the end of their education (from 16 and above) and are looking to enter a career path that can take them to the top.
There is also a range of other excellent benefits, including:
• 25 days paid holiday
• Flexible shift patterns
• Regular catch-ups with a friendly team
• Full benefits, including free uniform for care workers and travel schemes
• Full training and support from day one.
We have roles available at our sites across Berkshire, Surrey, and the South-East.

What is it about A2Dominion that makes you want to stay?
For me, a big part of the reason I stay is all my colleagues, my team I work with. It's like a family. When I first started, everyone was very welcoming. I didn't feel like I was a burden to anyone. Everyone's really supportive, helpful, friendly, everyone's approachable. And so, I settled in very quickly at the start.
Managers and colleagues will support you. They will provide encouragement and ensure that you are performing to your fullest potential. And maybe suggest an alternative route within the organisation.
The best part is the support and the encouragement to do well, even though it means they may lose you as a member of their team, they still root for you in another.
What opportunities have you been given to learn and grow since starting at A2Dominion?
I started as an apprentice so there's been many opportunities.
My first opportunity was as a leasehold coordinator. That exposed me to the world of property and dealing with solicitors for legal inquiries on property selling and managing so I got a lot of exposure into that world, very early on.
They recognised my potential and then I’ve grown within the business. I've managed to gain further qualifications, which have been funded by the organisation.
And there's always opportunities to learn more. So, I've gone up in the ranks. A couple of times my job role has changed, and I've recently started a new role.
I think there’s so many different departments and so many areas that you can delve into. Opportunities are endless.
