Are you looking to do something incredible in 2020? Something that could change a life and tackle loneliness for older people in your local community? Are you kind-hearted with a bright personality that could light up a person’s day? If this is you, then we want to hear from you.
We have part-time hours available in the Swansea areas between postcodes SA1– SA11, so if you live in any of these areas, we have plenty of local work for you. No experience is required as excellent training is provided. However, it is essential that you have a full UK driving licence and access to your own vehicle.
No one should feel alone. Over a million older people in the UK say they can go a month without speaking to a friend, relative or neighbour. As a Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Companion, you can help prevent this. Sometimes the smallest acts, really can make the biggest difference.
Be a part of something special
We are advertising on behalf of an award-winning national brand who focus on a 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. Our Directors passion was to provide a high-quality home care service after his grandfather reached a point in his live where he needed a little help and support to remain in his own home. Unfortunately, the service he received was not as the high as he deserved.
Sound good? What does the Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Companion role involve?
All their clients’ needs vary, from providing companionship, assisting with personal care, helping with domestic duties & preparing meals, to helping with medication or taking them out to continue to do the things they love. If you also think about everything you do daily, you would be supporting someone to do the same. The kind of things that you would do for a friend or relative, and what you would expect for yourself when you’re older.
If you are caring in nature, trustworthy, patient and understanding and want to make a difference why not do something rewarding. You could be joining an award-winning national brand who have been voted as a 5* employer. Within their organisation if you shine, opportunities are created. They have ambitious plans for the future, and you could be part of that!
Don’t worry if you have any questions, we will have a chat with you once you have applied and put your mind at ease on any questions you may have regarding joining our team!
** 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.
