Live-in-Care Assistant - seasonal contract

Nationwide

£90 - £115/day

 

Deliver great Christmas cheer!

(and maybe get a New Year career?)

 

The greatest gift you can give this Christmas is high quality live-in care. As a Professional Live-In Carer, you will help someone spend Christmas and New Year in the place they love the most – their own home.

 

Offering companionship and tailored support, you will ensure your client isn’t alone at Christmas. Whilst you will be looked after too with double pay for working bank holidays over the festive period and a 2-hour break every day.

 

With at least 6 months’ care experience, you must be available for 5 days’ training and a 6-week period or more, including December 23rd to January 2nd. As well as festive cheer, you will assist with personal care and daily activities.

 

If you want to make a real difference to someone’s life this Christmas and enjoy good rewards, training and support from a team that’s here for you 24/7, there's nowhere better than The Good Care Group. If you find you like it here, and want to stay, you can choose to stay with us much longer.

 

We are The Good Care Group, a provider of live-in care services across England and Scotland. A leader in our field, quality care is at the centre of everything we do. That’s why we’re the only dedicated live-in care provider to have been rated ‘Outstanding’ in all 5 categories assessed by the Care Quality Commission. We have also achieved ratings of ‘5’ and ‘6’ by the Care Inspectorate in Scotland.

 

Why there’s nowhere better:

  • 5 days’ face-to-face training before your 6-week or more placement

  • 24/7/365 support from our central team

  • A dedicated Care Manager who knows you and your client

  • All UK travel expenses covered whilst in placement

  • Free, confidential telephone line (Employer Assistance Programme) to support with any of the challenges life may bring

  • An online carer community to stay connected, share advice and best practice

  • Free PVG (if working in Scotland)

 

Your role will include:

  • Living with your client for a minimum of 6 weeks over the festive period (ongoing rota pattern also available)

  • Managing medical conditions such as dementia, stroke and Parkinson’s

  • Moving and handling

  • Cooking, cleaning and ensuring the smooth running of the house

  • You will have Key Worker status, access to regular testing and PPE will be provided

 

We’re looking for:

  • At least 6 months’ professional care experience in any care setting, such as live-in carer, domiciliary carer, care assistant, support worker, healthcare assistant or similar

  • A driving licence would be ideal, but is not essential, as many clients provide a car and insurance, so you can drive to the shops together or go on occasional trips 

  • The flexibility to travel to your client placement (UK travel expenses covered)


 

We HO-HO-HOPE you join us this Christmas!

 

Providing high quality care in people’s homes across England and Scotland, The Good Care Group is also part of Sodexo.
