We are looking to recruit full and part time workers to work a variety of shifts between 7 am and 10 pm.  Hours are negotiable with morning and evening work available.  We offer regular structured hours to support a better work life balance.

We are seeking dynamic individuals with a passion for both providing care and helping people to live as independently as possible. 

The role is both demanding and exciting and you will be responsible for visiting people in their own homes to offer support that is based on a person’s abilities following illness or hospital admission.

You will help people to regain independence using a reablement approach so they can undertake tasks such as personal care, meal preparation and taking medication through support that is dignified, respectful and places that person at the centre of your care. 

Do your values match our ours? We think it is important to:

  •   Promote the principles that give people choice and control in what they want to do
  •   Take a personalised approach to supporting people
  •   Provide care and support with dignity and respect
  •   Take pride in the quality of the work we do 

 We will offer you:

  • Excellent rates of pay.
  • Enhancements at weekends (time and a half), Bank Holidays (double time), evening work after 8pm (time and a third), plus a split shift allowance (£10.37 per month).
  • Rates of pay are for contracted hours and not dependent on number of calls completed, meaning travel time and downtime between calls is paid.
  • Excellent conditions of employment including holiday pay and pension scheme.
  • Uniform and PPE provided.
  • A structured induction training program leading to a diploma in health and Social Care at level 3 with encouragement to develop your career further.
  • A supporting and enabling management structure.

If you share our values, we would love to hear from you!
