Whether you have experience or not, we will help support you to reach your full potential by providing you with all the necessary training, guidance and support you need to complete your care certificate and further qualifications. You must have a big smile that will make each client’s face light up when they welcome you at the door. As each day is varied, you’ll need to think on your feet, having a good pair of eyes and ears are essential.

We don’t wear uniforms (it’s friendlier that way) but you must be prepared to roll up your sleeves to cook in the kitchen, support with shopping, housework including cleaning, laundry and personal care. Shift patterns: These may vary and will include at least one sleep in per week. Example hours: 7am – 2:30pm / 8am – 3:30pm / 9am – 4:30pm / 2:20 – 10pm / 9am – 3pm / 4pm – 9pm – Plus alternate weekends. Waking nights also available.

Since hiring is a human process, employers would like to talk with you online (chat, video or phone) to see if you meet the requirements for the job.
