This is an excellent opportunity to join an award-winning care provider, specialising in care and support to private clients within their own homes. You will be supporting older people to help them remain independent. You will be helping them achieve this by:

  • Taking them out shopping or attending local groups.
  • Attending doctors or hospital appointments.
  • Preparing meals and being a friend and someone for company.

What are the potential hours?

Part-time hours are available, approximately 10-30 hours per week. Unfortunately, full time hours or school hours are not offered due to the nature of the work. If you are available some early mornings, lunchtimes, afternoons, evenings or a couple of hours on a weekend, then this position is ideal for you.

What are the benefits?

Making a difference to someone’s everyday life is the biggest benefit and motivator for doing this job.

Excellent hourly rate of £9.00 - £18.00 per hour plus mileage allowance.

Continuous training and support, with ongoing progression.
