“I work as a Care Assistant /Support Worker in Whitehaven for a fantastic company and I love it! I support mainly older adults (but some Younger) to help them to continue living independently in their own homes. This can include things like everyday tasks, for example ensuring they get to the toilet or bathroom safely, preparing everyday meals as well as taking them out for appointments or to continue with their hobbies. “

“After looking for a career change, I became a Care Assistant for this company back in 2015, and I wouldn’t work for any other company. The manager is amazing and recently won Homecare Branch Manager of the year for 2019 at the National Great British Care Awards, and from my point of view she is very supportive and someone who is very dedicated to the care sector indeed! I would go as far as to say she loves all of us and I feel fully supported in my role. When we received an outstanding rating by CQC I couldn’t have been prouder. I thoroughly enjoy my job, it can be an emotional job at times, but I have lots of laughs with the people I support too, the reward I get from them every day is unreal! We are a fantastic team and we love what we do!
What are the benefits of working as a Care Assistant & Support Worker?

- The Hours are flexible Full, or Part-Time and Guaranteed Contracts are Available – which is very rare in Domiciliary Care
- My pay is fantastic £9.30 per hour, £11.63 Bank Holidays

We need people like you to join our fantastic team. We are particularly looking for people who don’t necessarily have experience of working in care, but it’s something you have always wanted to do.
