Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Care Companion, Colwall

We are looking for big-hearted, kind individuals living close to the Colwall area of Herefordshire to join a brand-new homecare provider aspiring to change the way people think about care and how it is delivered to older adults living in their own homes in the local community.

Imagine doing something that is more than just a job. A role where you can make a difference to the life of an older person in your local community, a feeling like no other, and something you could feel every day.

There are full and part-time, CONTRACTED HOURS, available in the Malvern, Colwall, Upton upon Severn, Welland, Powick, Worcester, Callow End, Kempsey, Hanley Swan, Clifton, Hanley Castle, Rushwick, Hallow and surrounding areas. So if you live close by, they have plenty of local work for you. It is essential that you hold a full driving licence and have access to a vehicle.

Kindness helps others

Our client is an independent, modern, family run company built on wonderful values and beliefs. They have created a special place to work where you could play a part in changing the care sector. They were founded following a family experience of care and aspire to be outstanding and believe there is no compromise in care. Everybody deserves the highest standard of care and support, and to be treated with dignity and respect, mediocre care is not an option. Each of their team shares their vision and they are proud for each person to deliver that vision.

Sound good? What will you be doing?

All of the people our client supports have different needs. As their Care Companion, you will provide companionship, assist with personal care, help with domestic duties, preparing meals and medication, or taking them out to continue doing the things they love such as shopping, going to the bingo or to a local community group. If you think about everything you do daily, you would be supporting someone to do the same.

There are more benefits too….

  • £9.00 - £11.00 per hour + 30p mileage allowance;
  • Flexible hours so you can meet your personal and family commitments (they have lots of availability for early mornings start from 7:30am, so could be perfect for an early bird);  
  • Enough time between calls so you can arrive safely and be composed;
  • Enhanced bank holiday rate and paid shadowing shifts;
  • Employee wellbeing scheme including retail discounts, health plans, paid holidays and pension scheme.
