At Home Instead Cardiff our model is simple – we respect and value our Care Assistants and provide a friendly and supportive environment for you to work in to ensure that you can enjoy every single day knowing that you have changed the life of someone who needs a little bit of extra support in your community.

We do this by listening to our Care Assistants and always being there for you. We only deliver visits that are a minimum of 1 hour and this means you are never rushed and you always have time to provide the personal support and also the time to do other important things – like having a cup of tea and a chat with your client.

We ensure that all of our Care Assistants are matched with our customers based on their hobbies interests. If you like to bake, cook, garden, go on walks, run or swim then we will find customers who share your interests so that you can enjoy these activities together.

Our basic rewards are as follows for our Care Assistants (and there are more beneath to read about!)

  • 1 hour minimum visits
  • £8.50 p/h weekdays
  • £9 p/h after 8pm
  • £9 p/h weekends
  • Travel time is paid Pro rata at minimum wage
  • Bank holidays double rate
  • Salary increase after 1 year (25p) p/h
  • 25p mileage
  • Unrivalled training and support
  • Discount and voucher reward schemes
  • Parking on site
  • Must be a driver

Where we stand out is our sense of community. We have an open door policy for all of our staff and our Care Assistants are like our family – so you are always encouraged to pop in for a cuppa, cake and biscuits.

Working as a Care Assistant is such an important role and we like to recognise this. From receiving flowers and a card from completing your probation period to our Recognition awards which run monthly, quarterly and yearly – we never forget to acknowledge all of the amazing work you do.

If you are from a hairdressing, teaching assistant, volunteer background or just completely new to care don’t worry! What we do well is support and train our staff. You are allocated your own mentor who is there to answer any questions you may have or if you just want to have a chat. We are proud to be making a difference and so we are here to ensure you have all the tools and skills to be able to achieve that.
