Job title: Weekend Care Assistant
Locations: Farnborough, Farnham, Fleet, Frimley, Aldershot and surrounding villages
Rate: From £10 to £13 per hour
Hours: Flexi-shifts, minimum commitment of six hours per weekend
Are you recently retired but miss the social side of working? Do you have spare time at the weekend and would like to help your community? Are you looking for a second income or a new challenge?
Are you an empathetic and compassionate person who wants to make a difference in your community? We are looking for Care Assistants (Caregivers) to help enable people to remain independent in their homes. Experience is not essential as full-training will be provided for successful applicants.
Duties include companionship, home-help (light domestic tasks), shopping, accompanying on short trips, looking after pets, meal preparation, personal care (supporting with washing and dressing, for example) and support with medication if required.
What we offer:
As a Caregiver, you will receive industry leading training, great rates of pay and excellent support.
We have been rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission, something we’re very proud of as it’s the highest rating that can be achieved.
We have an excellent reputation locally and a waiting list of clients looking to receive care from us, which means the work is always there for our Caregivers.
We offer a £200 welcome bonus for experienced Carers, which is awarded after completing your probation period.
We offer paid mileage at 45p per mile and paid travel time in between client visits.
We provide great training and support. We offer extensive shadowing, touch base calls and ongoing check ins, ensuring you’re comfortable and confident before the Care Team make you independent.
This is one of the few roles, within reason, where you can make your own shift pattern and tell us when you would like to work. Caring is not a 9 to 5 role, so we’ll work with you to get you the hours you want.
We will support you in gaining a qualification in NVQ Adult Health and Social Care, if desired.
All of our calls are a minimum of one-hour, ensuring the call isn’t rushed and is enjoyable for both you and the client.
You receive accrued paid holiday.
We have a confidential Employee Assistance Programme and a staff discount portal.
We have a friendly and supportive office team and 24/7 out-of-hours support.
Discretionary bonuses including gifts for reaching work anniversaries, referrals, picking up calls, Caregiver of the Month awards and monthly competitions.
We offer a free DBS check.
You will be a driver with access to your own vehicle.
You will be 18 or over.
You will be willing, after training, to provide personal care if required.
You live in, or near, the Aldershot, Fleet, Farnborough, Frimley and Farnham area.
