Home Instead looks to fill 3,000 active roles
The CEO of Home Instead UK, Martin Jones, is urging kind and compassionate people in the UK to join the wave of kindness sweeping the nation as they look to employ a further 3,000 individuals to bolster their army of care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Commenting on the situation created by the pandemic, Martin said, “The UK is under immense pressure due to COVID-19, and we want to ensure we can continue to commit to caring for our older clients especially following the government’s advice to remain at home and socially distance; which inevitably will leave many elderly people unable to leave their homes or see the people who they may usually day-to-day.
“We want to harness the community-spirit and kindness that is being demonstrated all over the UK right now, as those attributes are key to our workforce. In particular we are seeking those who have recently lost a role in hospitality, or retail that might have transferable skills.
“There are so many people out there who could help us make a positive difference to older people through relationship-led care. We are urging them to step forward.”
In recruiting for these new roles, Home Instead wants to ensure that there are enough CAREGivers to deal with the increasing level of demand it has experienced from clients, both new and existing.
Home Instead provides training to all new recruits so no qualifications or experience in the area is needed. Anyone over the age of 18 is able to apply and Home Instead has reduced the training to ensure as much as is practically possible is available online or virtually.
Home Instead is also recruiting for Care Managers, Recruiters and Schedulers.
