At this domiciliary care provider, they are a team of experienced Community care support worker / Home Care Workers, dedicated to making their clients living conditions as comfortable as possible and allowing them to continue to stay in their own home for as long as they would like to.

They strive to achieve an optimum sate of health and well-being and a high quality of life in a safe, caring, relaxed, and homely environment. To them, their clients are like family.

Whilst they are an Equal Opportunities Employer, they do encourage Applications from Female Drivers* at this moment (as of Wednesday 21st December 2016).

*The Legitimate aim for objective justification for this specification within this position is that they have a requirement for Female Carers who will be actively caring for Female clients in a personal care environment which requires the Clients to retain their dignity. At this specific moment, they are not needing male carers as they do not have the requirements. Nonetheless, they do welcome applications from anyone, and would give consideration to any application (as they anticipate a requirement in the Spring for male Carers).

Their motto is "Everything and More" because they feel that they have the time to care for their clients, to ensure they are getting the very best care from them when they need them the most. For this role, experience of working in the provision of care is a bonus, but if you do not have experience, you must be caring, compassionate, friendly and kind - they can give you all the other skills and experience that would be required to thrive in this role.

Rates of pay start from £9.50 per hour and up to £11.65; DOE
