What experience do I need?

Our current staff members have all achieved NVQ 2 or are working towards adding the new Diploma 2 to their extensive qualifications, and we expect the same level of training from new team members. We look for people who have a real passion for the work they do, going the extra mile wherever possible to make a difference to each person they work with.

What tasks will I carry out?

You will be expected to adopt a practical and dedicated attitude with friendly, supportive and approachable qualities in every element of your role. A typical day might include:

  • Assistance with personal hygiene tasks
  • Assistance with medication management
  • Preparation and cooking of meals
  • Cleaning, laundry, ironing and shopping
  • Support to use local facilities (e.g. shops, banks, post offices and public transport)

What are the benefits of working at Care Counts?

One of the main reasons our staff enjoy working at Care Counts is the friendly team and extra working benefits that other care providers don’t offer. We stay true to our principles and put any profit back into the business for the benefit of both staff and clients.

If you’d like to make it your mission to empower people to remain living independently within their own homes, please contact the team on 01484 424744. A rewarding role in care could be waiting for you.
