We are looking for Care Assistants & Companions for the Billericay area of Essex. Are you looking for a part-time Job near you? A Job that makes a difference, perhaps you have been looking for Volunteer jobs? Or maybe you are looking for a complete career change? There is no upper age limit & we welcome applications from those who are retired/semi-retired.

You would be joining a company who have Outstanding Values and Ethos.

 

We are advertising on behalf of an award-winning national brand who focus on a companionship led care service. They have won multiple awards over the years and have built an excellent reputation within communities across the UK. This exceptional service is different to any other care organisation in the area, providing a minimum of 1-hour home visits to a purely private client base, but the focus being on companionship.

 

Often an older person only receives help when it was an emergency situation.  We support older adults from the very moment they need it, it could be that they have lost their confidence, they could have memory problems, they could have an illness, or they have just become less bothered about life! Really sad isn’t it? We are here to make it better. That’s why I need you! To carry on our good work in the local community and make a difference!

Could you?

Could you help us provide a service to older adults which fits around their lifestyle, is perfectly flexible and allows them to carry on living independently in their own home? We perfectly match every one of our Care Assistants & Companions to our clients, often sharing similar interests or hobbies. We do this though to an extremely high standard.

Because we match you to our clients you will build up a close relationship with each other, you won’t be strangers. Could you: -

  • Have flexible, part-time, availability including some mornings, lunchtimes, evenings or weekends?
  • Help someone with their housekeeping?
  • Help someone prepare or cook a meal?
  • Be a fantastic companion and friend?
  • Support someone to wash and dress?
  • Take someone out for the day maybe into Billericay, and enjoy the things they do?

This is not a job, it is a vocation and to do this job you will need to be kind and compassionate, with a big heart!  It doesn’t matter how old you are, what job you have done in the past, or if you have never worked. If you can make an older person’s life brighter, feel great satisfaction from doing it, then you are exactly who we are looking for.
