Care Assistant (Afternoon and Teatime shifts)
Family-owned homecare business Birchwood Care Services is seeking carers to work in the Tonbridge area. We offer competitive rates of pay in the local area as well as a sign on bonus.
Birchwood Care Services is an independent and family-owned homecare business which has a rating of 9.7 out of 10 on homecare.co.uk, and we’d love for you to join our close-knit team of loyal carers. We are proud to have Investors in People status. Birchwood Care Services is part of Birchwood Care Group and works closely with Birchwood House, the care home based in a beautiful manor house in Speldhurst.
We are looking for friendly, caring staff to work our tea/pm shift. There are a flexible number of working days available from 3 up to 6 days where required. Our team is based in the Tonbridge area but can also accommodate the same shift availability in Tunbridge Wells if that’s more convenient for you. A means of transport and a full driving licence are essential, but rest assured you will receive a generous mileage allowance, in addition to the hourly rate.
This shift starts at 4 pm and our latest call to a client is at 9 pm.
Our pm shifts include:
- Preparing tea/supper and hot drinks for clients
- Helping clients with getting ready for or into bed
- Helping clients with personal care if required
- Helping with medication needs if necessary
- Ensuring that the client is comfortable and well cared for and that they have everything to hand they need for the evening through until the following morning
We, of course, value those staff that have previous care experience. But we’re also happy to train and support those who don’t have the experience but are enthusiastic and passionate about caring and supporting others to continue to remain at home and enjoy life independently. With the extensive training and career progression opportunities available at Birchwood Care Services, a career as a carer provides a career for life.
At Birchwood, we treat our clients as we would like to be treated. We aim to enable them to enjoy enriched and fulfilling lives, ensuring as much independence and well-being as possible throughout later life.
We offer work that fits around your life, with full-time and flexible work patterns as well as highly competitive pay and mileage. Our offering includes:
- An hourly rate from £12 to £14.25
- A sign on bonus of £275*
- Mileage of 35p/mile
- A loyalty bonus scheme
- Induction paid for
- DBS check paid for
- A referral bonus of £275*
- A quarterly retail/gift voucher for all
- Career progression opportunities
(*Subject to employment for 12 months)
Our clients will be depending on you and so we’re looking for a truly caring and compassionate person to join us.
