Don’t believe everything you hear about working for a homecare agency

Our mission is to be an employee of choice, which means we tackle the common issues in the care industry and do our utmost to bring a positive change for all.

Regrettably, as a result of the working practices of certain agencies, there is a perception that individuals seeking employment in the care industry must be willing to endure low wages, cope with demanding workloads that can leave them exhausted, experience apprehension regarding job stability, and receive insufficient training and support.

Thankfully, not all homecare agencies are equal.

Our mission at Home Instead is to be an employee of choice, which mean we tackle these issues head on and do our utmost to bring change to the care industry. We continually seek ways to create a workplace where our Care Professionals feel valued, respected and supported.

And we’re getting a lot right! We have exceptional feedback from our Care Professionals. They tell us they love their job and their clients, so much so that it doesn’t feel like work.

Here are some of the reasons why, if you are looking to change agencies or start a career in care, you should be speaking to Home Instead:

Good pay rates and benefits

You can expect £24.30 – £26.50 per 2 hour visit (breaks down to £12.15 and £13.25 per hour) with 30p – 45p per mile mileage.

We operate an employee reward scheme and employee shopping discount scheme.

Flexible hours and sensible travel time between visits

Let us know which days and the number of hours you’d like to work, and we’ll do our best to match your preferences within our client schedule.

If visiting more than one client in a day, we take into consideration the distance between visits to ensure you arrive unruffled and ready with a welcoming smile.

Guaranteed Hours Contracts

We offer 10, 16 or 30 hours per week guaranteed hours contracts. If a zero hours contract is more attractive, that is still an option.

Visit durations that allow relationships to blossom

Care Professionals and clients are carefully matched to ensure they enjoy their time together and relationships are given the opportunity to flourish.

Our two our minimum visits allow for support around the house as well time to take a trip to a garden centre for tea or an outing to a favourite location.

Award winning training and supportive teams

If you are new to the care industry, our industry leading award-winning training will provide you with the skills and confidence to start a rewarding career.

We are the only homecare company to receive two Princess Royal Training Awards for our Alzheimer’s and dementia training, which is City & Guilds accredited.

We are a friendly bunch! You’ll have a dedicated support team, which is on-call to provide telephone support to assist you every step of the way.
