If you live in a rural area of Wales, then you could cut your work commute by joining the care industry.
We have many carers who now provide care in their communities. They have built better relationships with their neighbours because of it.
One of our carers said: “Our small community is very tight knit. Being able to provide care services to people who I consider to be neighbours, is ideal for me, not only because I already know them very well, but there is a very short work commute!
“Being so close allows us to build a great relationship. We see each other more regularly and we have much more in common. It’s also very easy for me to pop in as they live so close. I care very much for my service users. Even when I’m not on duty I am able to keep an eye on them and make sure they are ok, especially during these troubling times.”
Where this kind of match between the person needing support and the carer can be made it also helps enormously with safety during the winter months. Locally based carers can almost always reach someone even in poor conditions such as heavy rain or snow.
You can register with us and become a part of the team. You’ll receive the same benefits as our full-time carers. We can also let you know when work becomes available in your area.
No experience is necessary to become a carer as we offer free, full training. This includes a company induction, first aid, information on dementia, health and safety, food safety, infection control, handling medication and moving and handling service users. There’s also the opportunity to achieve Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) after the initial six months probationary period.
New recruits are given free uniforms, access to national staff discount scheme for all major brands as well as 28 days paid holiday, paid travel between calls and paid mileage.
