What are the potential hours?We are looking to fill various time slots throughout the day, so If you are available some early mornings, lunchtimes, afternoons, evenings and every other weekend, then this position is perfect for you. Full-time and part-time hours are available, approximately 15-40 hours per week.

What are the benefits?

  • Excellent hourly rate of £9.50 - £18.00 (Bank Holiday rate);
  • Mileage allowance;
  • Continuous training and support;
  • We actively promote from within, so there are fantastic opportunities for ongoing progression.
What skills do you need to be a Homecare Assistant?

  • Firstly, you will want to make a difference to someone’s life and have a big heart!
  • You can be from any background and from any age group (18+), there is no upper limit.
  • You will be able to build a relationship and rapport with the person you are paired with.
