Job Description

Give someone a Christmas they’ll cherish (and get rewards you’ll love).  We are looking for experienced Carers to join our team of live-in Carers, supporting our clients in Oxfordshire and surrounding areas.  

Offering high-quality, tailored support and companionship, you will help our elderly clients spend Christmas in the place they love most.  And whilst you’re caring for your client, our local, experienced team will be here to support you, 24/7.  With over 50 years experience in the healthcare sector, we understand the care and support our Carers need to be able to provide the very best live-in care.

We look after our Carers:

  • Great rates of pay – you could earn up to £4,922 (gross) for 6 weeks’ work over the festive period
  • Generous rest time in placement - 26 hours of paid breaks per week
  • Free induction training with opportunities to further develop your knowledge through our ongoing training courses
  • Free accommodation in our dedicated carer house during training
  • Double pay on 25th, 26th, 31st December & 1st January
  • Local 24/7 support from our experienced team
  • Free DBS check
  • Free, confidential telephone line (Employer Assistance Programme)
  • We offer longer placements which enable you to spend more time building a meaningful relationship with the person you care for and that gives you the flexibility to fit your work pattern around your lifestyle choices

 

Your life-changing work will involve:

Living with our clients for a minimum of 6 weeks over the festive period.  As well as festive cheer, you’ll provide companionship and support with personal care, domestic tasks and housekeeping (cooking, washing, ironing, hoovering, etc.) so our clients can live well in their own homes.

You will have the opportunity to support people living with a variety of conditions, enabling you to further develop your skills and knowledge.  All placements are within 70-miles of Oxford, so you must be able to travel to your client placement.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Hands-on professional care experience and the confidence to work independently.  You may have worked as a live-in carer, domiciliary carer, care assistant, support worker, healthcare assistant or similar.
  • Good communication skills and ability to maintain clear and accurate records
  • To be reliable, compassionate and enthusiastic
  • Experience of working under pressure and staying calm in difficult situations.
  • Eligibility to work in the UK
  • As this is a live-in position you will need to commit to living with your client for a minimum of 6 weeks over Christmas, although many of our Carers choose to stay in their placements for longer periods before having an extended break 

 

Providing quality care in people’s homes since 1967, Oxford Aunts is run by a team of experienced care professionals and is part of Sodexo and The Good Care Group.
