Live-In Carer- Public SectorDescription: Helping Hands Live-In Carer London An incredibly rewarding career opportunity in the UK for people who truly care Living with a customer in their home, it’ll be your responsibility to offer one-to-one daily support in a variety of ways based on their individual circumstances. You’ll prepare meals for them (and often eat with them) and assist with personal care, mobility, medication and the everyday household chores they may find challenging like cooking, cleaning, laundry and shopping. And your most important job of all will be spending quality time with your customer, keeping them company, putting a smile on their face and helping them maintain their independence. As you can imagine, caring for someone full-time is demanding but it’s undoubtedly one of the most rewarding careers you can have. We’ll match you carefully with a customer to suit both of your needs and you’ll really get to know the person you’re caring for and form a relationship based on respect, patience and kindness. You’ll help them do things that they aren’t able to and remain happily in their own home for longer. Every little thing that you do will help make a huge difference to a customer’s life and we’ll provide you with great career support and development at every step of the way. Who you are Care is second nature to us, and it will be to you too. We’ll give you full and extensive training but you’ll need to have some experience of caring for others – be that on a personal or professional level. You’ll be compassionate, kind-hearted committed and great with people. This isn’t just any job, we’re looking for individuals who truly care and genuinely want to make a difference to others’ lives. People who’ll understand what our customers need and can make it happen, treating them with the upmost dignity and respect. Brilliant at multi-tasking, it goes without saying that you’ve great attention to detail and always remain calm under pressure. You’ll be reliable and resilient, ready to take on the challenges this role presents and develop a rewarding career. Friendly, flexible and fluent in English, you’ll have first-class communication and listening skills. It’s important that you have the right to work in the UK and all appointments are based on you successfully passing your enhanced DBS check. What we’ll do for you We’re just as committed to looking after our employees as we are our customers. Joining us, you’ll receive full induction training at our week-long residential programme at our centre of excellence in Alcester, Warwickshire. And the support doesn’t stop there, once you’re in the role, we’ll help you to achieve an NVQ in Care up to level 3 and other qualifications. You’ll have your own mentor and help will only ever be a phone call away, 24/7. We have different care packages available in a range of locations and all our customers’ homes have been vetted to meet our standards. We put a lot of effort into matching our carers and customers and we’ll try to pair you with a customer that best meets your needs, experience, personality and desired location. About us Here at Helping Hands, we try and improve people’s lives in whatever way we can; we always think about how we can do things better, go the extra mile and make things possible. We’ve been supporting people with award-winning care across England and Wales since 1989; enabling them to remain in the familiarity of their own homes, surrounded by the things and people they love. We’re really very proud of our carers. They are the heart of Helping Hands and truly make a difference to people’s lives, every single day
