We’re looking for people with the personality and passion to
build great relationships with our clients
Our clients trust us. They will rely on you to listen carefully to
what they need, take an interest in them and deliver excellent care.
If you enjoy interacting with older individuals and want to pursue an
opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others, caregiving
might be the career for you.
The central and most important part of a CAREGiving role with Home
Instead is offering companionship and conversation. Each of our
CAREGivers is matched to a client based on mutual interests and
hobbies to encourage a strong relationship to develop.
We believe you need this understanding and bond to be able to care
for someone as if they were a member of your own family. Indeed, many
of our CAREGivers do not have formal experience of working as a carer
before they join our team, but have looked after a family member and
want to make a difference to an older person’s life by using the
experience they have gained.
Our service is companionship led and so a considerable responsibility
of a CAREGiver is to stimulate and encourage the client through a
range of different activities that sustain or improve their quality of
life. A CAREGiver’s responsibilities can also include accompanying
clients to appointments and social events, light housekeeping,
planning and preparing meals and helping with daily living routines.
We are looking for friendly, kind, compassionate people who like to
spend time with older people and build a friendly but professional
relationship. Therefore we don’t believe in onerous application forms,
we prefer to meet face to face for a chat to make sure you match our
values and most importantly for you to see what Home Instead is all
about. Don’t worry if you don’t have sector experience, we have
extensive training and on-going development opportunities that will
enable to you deliver our special brand of relationship-led care.
What we will give you:
Working hours to suit your needs around other commitments you may have
A 3 day specialised learning assessment program as part of our
recruitment process on how to become a Home Instead CareGiver
Investment in you as a person and any additional training or
qualifications you may wish to carry out
An hourly wage reflective of the important role you do
considerably higher than the minimum wage
Weekly and monthly support groups and a dedicated manager offering
you support along the way
Most importantly the chance to feel apart of the growing network
of CAREGivers that really do care
What we need from you:
Your full name and details sent to the below email address and we
will send you an application form
If you were one of the successful few to join our outstanding and
growing team you would need to complete a new transferable DBS check
at your cost (we can do this together)
The right car insurance – this is really simple and in our
experience, this should cost no more than a £25.00 one-off admin
charge – you shouldn’t need to add any more miles as we try to match
your clients to be as close as possible to where you live.
