Home Care Worker/Home Carer/Home Help : Lewisham, London

We need you! Plan Care is a successful home care provider, with branches throughout London and the South. We deliver over 1.5 million hours of care every year, supporting elderly and other vulnerable people to live independent, fulfilling lives in their own homes. We provide support with daily living tasks, operating generally between the hours of 7am through to 11pm seven days a week. The tasks will include the delivery of personal care, meal preparation, housework, shopping, socialising and other daily living tasks within Service Users’ own homes. We are looking for more staff who are able to offer regular hours each week to include some weekends and who can demonstrate commitment and reliability. We are able to offer regular schedules of work in return. We are particularly keen to hear from people who are available in the evenings and at week-ends. Some previous experience is useful – perhaps you’ve been supporting a family member or you’ve done some voluntary work – but more important is that you’re a caring person. We will need to take up references on your previous work. The following are key skills for this type of work: • Excellent verbal and written communication skills. • Be able to work on own initiative and without constant supervision • Be reliable, punctual and flexible. • Excellent customer service skills. Pay rates are competitive, above the minimum wage and include enhancements for week-ends and Bank Holidays. We will provide you with free induction training covering all mandatory requirements to work within the care industry and the opportunity for further training including diplomas in Health and Social Care and specific training courses to meet the individual needs of our Service Users. A DBS (Criminal Records Bureau police check) will be required at the applicant’s cost (£44).
