With no experience required this is the perfect opportunity to start your career in care and further gain any qualifications necessary.

We have vacancies for both full and part time hours including mornings, evenings & weekends.

For this role we require every employee to undertake some form of weekend working. Driving and having access to your own vehicle is desirable but it is not essential. We do recruit non drivers who are able to travel around the local area also. As a Home Care Assistant your duties will be to:

  • Provide care and support to clients in their own homes in the community.
  • Provide personal care for clients, such as bathing, washing, always ensuring that the client’s dignity and privacy is maintained.
  • Assist clients with personal grooming, such as dressing, hair or dental care.
  • Always encourage clients to be as self-managing as possible so they can maintain their independence.
  • Assist with preparation, cooking feeding or serving of meals, to wash up and clear away afterwards.
  • Provide general companionship and support.
  • Always work within Health and Safety Regulations and S.O.S. Homecare’s policies and procedures.
  • Always be aware of professional boundaries between you and the client, never undertake any task, activity or visits not otherwise stated or requested in the care plan.

The company offers a strong training and development programme for all our care assistants and supports progression within the health and social care industry. They also believe that employees need to feel comfortable and supported at work. They therefore promote a positive working environment and the managers have an open-door policy to help employees feel supported and at ease in raising problems (personal or work-related).

We know there’s more to life than work - that’s why when you join SOS Homecare you’ll get your pick of our amazing company perks. That includes phone insurance, tastecards, and great price cinema tickets, plus loads more.
