We are looking for passionate Paid Volunteers, Befrienders & Companions to work part time hours in the Sandbach area and surrounding villages of South Cheshire. Your job would be helping older adults remain independent in their own homes as well as continuing to do the activities they love. 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 who have been awarded Outstanding by the CQC. They are part of an award-winning organisation with an outstanding brand and reputation in the care industry! Not only do they promote a minimum of 1-hour support, they make sure their carers are perfectly matched to their clients, so you can build a lasting relationship! They really do invest in their carers and ensures that everyone feels valued and part of the team.


The owner’s grandad reached the stage in his life where he realised that he would need support to remain in his own home. Unfortunately, he received a very poor level of care and support from a home care provider. Due to his Grandad’s negative experience, it has given the owner a passion to provide a care service which exceeds all of their client’s expectations.


Benefits & Hours:

  • If you have some availability early mornings, lunchtimes, afternoons, evenings and alternate weekends, then this position is ideal for you;
  • Paid training, shadowing, meeting and team meetings;
  • Pension scheme, paid holidays and Apprentice Scheme;
  • Bonus scheme;
  • Full training providing and support towards further qualifications;
  • Excellent progression opportunities too, so this could be the first step towards a long-lasting, rewarding career.

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.


** PLEASE NOTE this is not a Volunteer job, it is paid employment, however we are trying to attract those that would look for Volunteer type jobs.
