Bluebird Care Trafford


Bluebird Care Trafford was established in 2011, with the aim of delivering the very best care at home available.  Since then we have gone from strength to strength, winning a host of awards along the way.

Our success is down to the determination, compassion and dedication of our care team, which has allowed us to grow an excellent reputation locally for the work that we do.

Trafford is a borough situated in Greater Manchester, lying to the south of the city of Manchester.  It includes the bustling market town of Altrincham which is also where our friendly and knowledgeable office team are based. 

We are now looking to expand our existing team of Live-In Carers, by building a bank of Live-In staff who can be on stand by to start assignments as and when new package enquiries arise.  This will allow us to react quickly to the needs of new clients and ensure that there is no delay in them receiving the care that they need.

As a Live-In Carer your role could range form basic companionship to end of life care.  You will need to feel comfortable performing personal hygiene tasks with your clients and be willing to undertake medication training.

This opportunity may be suitable for those who have other jobs but do not receive regular work.

What you can expect from Bluebird Care Trafford:

  • A ‘Fair Daily Average Agreement’ which details the amount and type of tasks and duties that will be expected, continually monitored for fairness
  • Rates of between £500 and £693 per week (£2166 - £3000 per month) depending on the level of care you’ll be providing and your schedule/roster
  • Holiday pay, proportional to the amount of time you have been working
  • Every day you are entitled to have a 3 hour break to take time out and relax
  • The cost of meals is covered and you will have your own room
  • Training and development opportunities – you will always be paid for any classroom based training undertaken
  • After 12 weeks probation you will get free Breakdown and Recovery Service and an NHS Top Up Healthcare Plan


Our Ideal candidate:

  • Will have some experience of looking after others and managing a household
  • Will be a sincere and responsible person, who is perceptive to changing care needs
  • Will have good levels of spoken and written English; is able to follow care plans and complete training
  • Will have a full UK driving licence and access to a vehicle

  • Is respectful, promotes dignity and adopts a person-centred approach
  • Will have a lifestyle suited to working away from home for extended periods of time
  • Will be happy and confident performing basic cooking and cleaning tasks

As a valued member of our team, you will receive regular support from our dedicated office staff, who are local to where you will be placed and highly responsive to assist with any queries, questions, issues or emergencies.
