Job Description

If you’re passionate about providing the very best care, we think there’s nowhere better than The Good Care Group.  As a Professional live-in Carer you’ll have the time to care and provide tailored support to your client - with our award-winning team supporting you, every step of the way.

Why we think there’s nowhere better:

  • 5 days’ face to face training before your first placement
  • 5* hotel accommodation during your induction week
  • 24/7/365 support from our central team
  • A local Care Manager who knows you and your client
  • All UK travel expenses to and from placement covered 
  • Free, confidential telephone support line (Employer Assistance Programme) 
  • An online carer community to stay connected, share advice and best practice
  • Ongoing training and development opportunities, including level 2 diploma in working in care services and a level 3 award in awareness of dementia 
  • Support you with your SSSC registration, covering the registration cost for the 1st year
  • Support with achieving an SVQ2 in health and social care
  • Free  PVG

 

Salary:

  • Our pay rewards you for your skills and experience - you will also receive a pay review annually at your appraisal
  • Depending on your chosen rota pattern, you could earn up to £32,200 per year.  Plus:
    • An additional £2,800 per year if working in a couples placement
    • An additional £2,800 per year if working on a 12 hour daily average hours agreement
    • 2 hour break per day

 

Live-in carers live with a client for the duration of their chosen rota pattern (e.g 2, 4 or 6 weeks).  You’ll look after one person or at times a couple, providing care, companionship and help with cooking, cleaning and ensuring the smooth running of the house.  Following a person-centred care plan, you will tailor your support to meet your clients’ needs.   You will generally provide a daily average of 10 hours care provision to your client, assisting with daily activities, personal care, or support in managing specialist conditions such as dementia.  

We’re looking for:

  • A minimum 6 months’ professional care experience in any care setting, such as live-in carer, domiciliary carer, care assistant, support worker, healthcare assistant in the NHS or similar
  • A driver’s licence is an advantage but not a requirement (the client provides the car and the insurance for occasional trips out)
  • Flexibility to travel to your client placement (UK travel expenses covered)

 

Providing high-quality live-in care in people’s homes across Scotland and England, The Good Care Group is also part of Sodexo.  We’re leading in our field and quality care is at the centre of everything we do.  We’re rated as “Excellent” for care and support and “Very Good” for staffing by the Care Inspectorate in Scotland.  We’re also rated Outstanding in all 5 categories by the Care Quality Commission in England.

*Your annual salary will depend on your level of experience and chosen rota pattern.
