Here’s an outline of what you can expect in 5 steps:

1. Your application to Home Instead Dudley and Sandwell South – From the moment you make an initial enquiry on our website, you are not just an applicant; you’re a potential new member of our family. A warm, friendly phone call from our team will be your first step into the world of Home Instead, discussing how we stand apart from other care providers and how we can match your skills and qualities with the role of a Care Professional.

2. Face to face interview – Getting the right fit is crucial, for both you and us. That’s why for the next step, we invite successful applicants into our office where you can get a feel for how we work and meet the faces behind our home care service. It’s a chance to get to know you, find out more about your work history and/or life skills, for you to understand the job role in detail, and to see if we are the right fit for each other!

4. Introductions – The very core of our service is our person-centred approach; so we always ensure our new Care Professionals are introduced to their clients properly. More than just an introduction, you’ll be accompanied by experienced members of the client’s team for initial visits, ensuring you get to know the client and their individual care plan, enabling you to deliver outstanding home care that’s as unique as the individuals we look after.

5. Support from our team – Within a structured support of a three-month probation period, you’ll have a designated key player from our office team to support you. Your mentor will support you in completing your Care Certificate and other training elements with confidence.
