We are seeking Paid Volunteer, Befrienders & Companions who live in the Brentwood, Billericay, Upminster and surrounding areas of Essex. This is a part-time job with guaranteed average hour contracts, and you will need to be a car driver with access to your own car.

Who would I be working for?

We are advertising on behalf of an award-winning provider who focus on a bespoke companionship led care service. They have won multiple awards over the years and have built an excellent reputation within communities across the UK. This exceptional service is different to any other care organisation in the area, providing a minimum of 1-hour home visits to a purely private client base, but the focus being on companionship. The Directors are a husband and wife team who share a real passion to provide the highest standard of care and support, to help older people remain in their own home, remain active and healthy in a safe environment for as long as possible. They experienced the benefit of this when one of their grandparents managed to live independently in her own home until the age of 92.

What would I be doing as a Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Companion?

By becoming a Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Companion you will be helping an older person in your local community not only combat loneliness but also help them stay independent. Everyone’s needs differ, some of our clients are more independent than others, you will be carefully matched to an older adult in your local area needing companionship and support.  This could vary from helping them to get up, showered/Bathed, get dressed, have breakfast to preparing a meal or taking them out for the day. To be a fantastic companion, are you:

  • Caring, compassionate and patient?
  • Do you have a great personality and would make a fantastic befriender?
  • A car driver with access to your own car?
  • Looking for a part-time job where you can make a difference?
  • Available for either early mornings, lunchtimes, evenings or a few hours alternate weekends?
