At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing home care for over 30 years, so we know what it takes to deliver exceptional care. But we also take care of our own – those who go above and beyond every single day for our customers.
Our care assistants have a varied role that ranges from providing companionship and going on days out with customers through to helping with personal care and housekeeping. If you’re looking for a job that can be flexible around your lifestyle, has guaranteed pay and involves doing something that genuinely makes a difference, look no further.
There are a variety of shift patterns available to you, whether you want to work mornings, afternoons, evenings or weekends, we've got something to suit you and your lifestyle.
At Helping Hands, we can offer the following benefits for our care assistants:
Our Guaranteed Pay Contract is an industry first, and we believe this will help you to agree on hours that suit you and get paid consistently every month. But if you’d prefer to have a zero-hours contract because it suits your lifestyle, that’s fine too. Our branch care managers will discuss your working preferences with you.
Being a care assistant means you need to be adaptable, personable but ultimately put others first. Your role will include:
All we need from you is the desire to care for others, we can teach you the rest. Working as a care assistant isn’t always the easiest job, but we promise that it will be one of the most rewarding.
