Care Assistant (new)

Job Type:

Permanent

Salary:

£8 - £13 Per Hour

We value and respect our Care Assistants because they simply do one incredible thing that is often overlooked – they put a smile on the faces of the people in our community who need a little bit of extra support.

The reason why our Care Assistants stay with us for so long is simple; because we value all of your work and we make sure you are acknowledged, appreciated and rewarded for this. Working in care is highly rewarding but there are days when you need some extra support and that’s what we excel at – our door is always open and we always want to hear from you.

From Christmas presents, Easter eggs, Birthday cards (and presents!) to chocolates and flowers to say thankyou for your amazing work we look after our Care Assistants because it is because of your support that people start and end the day with a smile on their face.

The whole team is filled with characters, we are approachable, friendly and supportive and we stand out because we understand our Care Assistants and Customers; our office staff including our Registered Manager still deliver care as we believe it is important to lead from the front.

We operate throughout Coleford, Hereford, Ross, Gloucester, Forest of Dean, Cinderford and Lydney and here is how we support/reward our Care Assistants:

  • Cars provided for our staff (fully insured)
  • Hourly rate weekdays £8.50
  • Hourly rate weekends £9.00
  • Bank holiday up to £12.75
  • Paid travel between calls (you’re never out of pocket!)
  • 12p mileage reimbursement (when using own car)
  • Company mobile phone
  • Paid uniform, paid training & shadowing
  • Part time / full time
  • Open door policy – we always want you to come in and say hello over a cuppa

As our Care Assistants stay with us for a long time we make sure that we celebrate important milestones so for our staff who have reached, 5, 10 and sometimes over 15years service with us we make sure we celebrate with presents and certificates. We also enjoy running competitions for all of our staff, most notably are famous Christmas and Easter competitions for the chance to win Hampers filled with things that probably won’t help your waistline!

No experience? No worries – Q Care offers a paid induction training programme, we have been in the business for 25 years and have acquired the best knowledge there is. We will train you to the highest standards and to be the best that you can be!

Our team have a mix of skills and varying backgrounds which include Teaching Assistant, Hair Dresser, Nursery Assistant, Retail assistants, Charity or Volunteering therefore just because you haven’t done it before doesn’t mean you wont be great!

To be eligible for this role you need to be based in (then I have listed all the operating areas from your website for that branch) and you will need to be over 18 or turning 18 soon, ideally with a driving licence but we do have vacancies for non drivers as well.
