Company:
Bluebird Care

Apply for this job

We aren't like other Home Care companies in the area... We are a community, a family, we are ambitious, we never settle, and we listen to our Care Assistants. We are always looking for ways to improve how we support our Care Assistants and deliver care to our customers.

We are seeking kind and caring individuals to join our team of Care Assistants either a full-time or part-time basis. We provide care in the comfort of our customers' homes as an alternative to residential care so you need to be comfortable working in the community, which includes the need of having a full driving licence and access to a car. We work with a variety of different people, from children and young adults, through to working with the elderly and specialist types of Care. There is 100 years age difference between our youngest and oldest customer!

Our Care Assistants do more than you think! From helping people keep up with their hobbies to keeping them and their environment clean and healthy. We help people stay connected to the world outside their front door. We work with both adults and children, as well as specialist types of Care (bespoke training provided from our two registered nurses for all Care Assistants interested in developing their skills further), which helps you shape a career you can be proud of.

No experience necessary as full training is provided. We also warmly welcome individuals with previous Care or Support Worker experience.

Want to make a difference and help change the lives of the vulnerable and elderly in our local communities every day? Apply today!

About you

This is a role for an enthusiastic, driven and reliable person who can demonstrate a strong desire to support our customers and provide exceptional care. You will have the ability to provide outstanding accuracy when completing care notes, keeping open communication with the office, adapting to customers changing needs, and supporting other Care Assistants to ensure the highest standards of Care are maintained.

You don't need to have any previous experience in Care to start your career at Bluebird Care, we provide full training and a supportive induction to allow you to fully settle in and build up your confidence to provide the highest quality Care to our community.

You'll become part of a vibrant team in a friendly team, sharing a common purpose in providing the highest quality service to all our customers and Care Assistants throughout the day.


About the role

You will be based in the community, visiting customers who live in their own homes, supporting with a variety of different needs, including Social Inclusion, Personal Care, Medication, and Domestic. Each customer's needs will vary, and we support a variety of different customers living with mental, learning and physical disabilities, as well as childcare and elder care. There will be a mixture of lone working and double ups with other Care Assistants. You will also have the opportunity to progress onto our Mary Poppins (Under 18s), Clinical, Rapid Response and Mental Health Teams.
