Welcome to our Team

We are part of an award-winning national brand founded by a family and with family values running throughout the service. This service was opened by a brother and sister team over 12 years ago who were inspired by the family values ethos. Starting their childhoods growing up around older people they have grown up to know what outstanding care looks like. Starting off as one Homecare service and now a national name, it is refreshing to see that this is still very much a family company throughout the country, all holding the same values and fantastic ethos.

Pay rates, hours & benefits

  • £9.30 per hour + paid mileage
  • Paid travel time all paid at the same rate as care, not every provider offers that.
  • Full and part-time hours.

  • Being part of a service that will value you, but also be part of a company to be proud of.  

Are you naturally caring?

We have Dementia Friend & Companion job vacancies for natural carers, people who really want to make a difference in their local community.  All the people we support are still living in their own homes, it’s wonderful that you can support them to continue to live as independently as possible whilst keeping them safe in the place they love the most, their home. Each person’s needs vary, some of your clients may just want companionship, others are less able to cope on their own and need extra support with personal care and home help, either way if you are looking for a rewarding career, that you can go home and say, “I made a huge difference to someone today,” then this is the job for you.


You will receive a warm welcome to our team and will always be supported and valued. We welcome applications from all age groups, and it does not matter if you have no experience you will be fully trained and supported to flourish in your new job. So, click apply and we will contact you to find out more about you and answer any questions you may have.
