Being a CAREGiver
If you have time to spare and would really like to make a difference to someone in your local community, then why not give us a call? We are offering flexible hours (with some weekend and evenings) and we are happy for people to apply with availability from around fifteen hours to about thirty hours per week. In addition, as all of our clients are living in their own homes, you will need to have a means of transport to be able to visit them.
Our staff turnover is very low because we care about our team members as well as we care for our clients. Being a member of our team brings additional benefits as well as the job satisfaction and pay. We can explain more about this when you apply.
We like to make the process of joining our team as straightforward as possible and so normally we would invite you in for an informal chat but can also send the paperwork to you by email. This gives you the chance to see what we are like and it gives you the chance to ask any questions. If it looks like it is going to work for both of us, then you can complete the paperwork knowing that your application will be considered seriously.
As well as the usual DBS checks and references, we do apply one other rule and that is, "Would I let this person look after my own Mum or Dad?" All of our staff have to pass this test before we would consider them for employment with us.
Anyway, we are absolutely confident that you will enjoy working as part of our team, because some staff already tell us that working for Home Instead Senior. So, if this sounds like it could be for you, then pick up the phone and give us a call or alternatively find the Employment Enquiry page on our website and fill in your details. We will be in touch soon afterwards.

All the support that I got from all at the office throughout the year has been greatly appreciated. A special thanks to Stuart for looking after Carers so well especially extra benefits that we get.'
Working with Home Instead has given me the opportunity to further my education in Health & Social Care, as well as give me a rewarding career.
I love going to see my clients, it's like going out to visit my friends.
Its lovely to work with Home Instead, I get qualified and working with older people and hearing their experiences & getting to know them.
I just wanted to say "Thank you" to you and your team for the continual support, care & genuine kindness shown to both my Mum & Dad. Please let the care team know how grateful I am. Also thank you for your wonderful support during my Dads recent episode.Mrs G-Ickenham
