At Saxon Care we have spent the past 10 years providing outstanding support in our local community. We can only do that with the help and support from our Care Assistants who have helped us become one of the top 20 Care providers in the Southwest of England!

We are a family business with family values, and we are looking for new Care Assistants to join our award-winning team to continue to promote our high standards. We can only do that with more kind, caring and like-minded individuals who want to finish each day fulfilled and with a smile on their face.

Our Care Assistants are paid from their first client to their last client That’s right, even when you are travelling between clients you are still paid an hourly rate. This means if you work for 8 hours you are paid for 8 hours work – we do not base your pay on contact time. We believe that you should be rewarded every second you wear our Saxon Care uniform.

1. Leading salaries – our carers put a smile on the face of the people that make up our community every single day and so we ensure our carers have an industry leading salary.

2. We always say thank you – we value and respect all our Care Assistants and we never forget to say thank you, we are a team and more importantly a family.

3. No rushing – we always give you time to care and our coordinators ensure you are allocated the right amount of time to support your clients.

4. Mileage + Gaps paid –our carers benefit from 35p mileage payments and gaps paid between visits, so you are never out of pocket whilst working.

5. Guaranteed hours -we know job security and stable income is important, so we offer all our Care Assistants the chance to have guaranteed hours.

6. Joining and Referral Friend fee – we offer a joining fee and have a great referral friend scheme
