We are looking for passionate Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Companions to work in the Worthing & Shoreham area of West Sussex.  Your job would be helping adults remain independent in their own homes as well as continuing to do the activities they love most.

You would need to be available to work in Worthing, Shoreham, Henfield, Portslade, Lancing, Steyning, Upper Beeding, Bramber and surrounding villages. Experience is not essential as full training will be provided. However, it is essential that you hold a full UK driving licence and have access to a vehicle.

Be part of something special and join a fantastic homecare branch.

You could be joining a national, award-winning organisation with an outstanding brand and reputation in the care industry! This provider puts their client at the forefront of everything they do with a minimum of 1-hour support to help people to remain in the place they love the most, their home. Imagine having Dementia but still being able to go to your dancing class on a Saturday, still being able to pick up your pension, still going into town on a Wednesday for a browse around the market.

You would be helping make these things happen every day!

Benefits & Hours:

Sound good? What does being a Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Companion involve?

People often have the wrong perception of what the job will involve. All their clients’ needs vary, from companionship, assisting with personal care, domestic duties & preparing meals to help with medication or taking them out to keep doing the things they have always done and enjoy doing. If you also think about everything you do daily, you would be supporting someone to do the same.

Sometimes it is the smallest acts of kindness that make the biggest difference! If you are the type of person who goes above and beyond for someone in need and you have the desire and the time to make a positive difference to the life of an older person, then we would love to hear from you.

Everyone at this organisation shares a passion for providing great care and putting their clients first. If you share that passion, then you could be a great addition to their team. If you are excited by this rewarding job opportunity, then please click “apply.”
