This business will look to you to personally deliver domiciliary care to their customers in their own homes. Through their in-house Academy, they will give you all of the training and support you need (including funding you through your QCF level 2) so that you can provide care that's full of empathy, understanding, and respect. In return, they'll take equally good care of you. With a competitive salary, contracted hours, paid holidays, a generous mileage allowance, smart uniforms, Medicash plan, Pension and discounts on a range of local and national retailers all come as standard.

All of their customers are unique - so they all have different needs. Working from specially prepared personal care plans, you'll help out with a huge range of tasks - making sure everything's done exactly as your customers like it. Some will need your help with getting washed and dressed, or taking their medications correctly. Others might need a hand with the laundry, keeping the house spick and span, or getting in the shopping. Whatever you're doing, you'll take a real sense of pride in delivering care that sets the standard.

Obviously, if you have experience in delivering domiciliary care in the home that's fantastic - but for their client it's not essential. Our Academy will help you work towards your QCF 2 in Care, and build your skills. It's the ability to put yourself in someone else's shoes, to treat them with respect, and to appreciate that you're in their home, and need to do things their way, that is vital. (As is good spoken English, so you can communicate clearly.) Warm, capable, reliable and discreet, you'll be a real asset to the team. On a practical level, you do need to be able to travel round the local area to your customers, which in many areas means you'll need a driving licence and your own car as well as a mobile phone, to keep in touch.

Full and Part time hours available.
