Our carers have been given an incentive to help us bring new workers on board (October, 2018).
People working for us can refer a friend to join the team and receive a £150 cash bonus to spend in time for Christmas.
One of the places to source the best employees possible is from the care givers who already work for us, as they know exactly what we’re looking for and what sort of person will fit in well with the team, so if they recommend someone to us, we trust their judgement.
Previously the person referred had to complete 12 weeks of work before the referee received their bonus of £150, however, for a limited time we have reduced the qualifying period for each referral to completion of 100 hours of care work. This means anyone who refers a friend now will receive an early Christmas present from us in the form of their bonus.
The scheme is hugely beneficial for anyone joining us following a referral from an existing employee as they will already know a friendly face and could go on to undertake training and various qualifications.
Being a carer is a highly skilled, professional vocational occupation that is essential to the fabric of our society and the beauty of a job for life means people can start at the very bottom and work their way up with training and qualifications.
We’re looking for kind, honest, caring and reliable individuals who wish to have a stable and long-term career in care, and who would like to forge rewarding relationships with the service users they care for.
No experience is necessary to become a carer as free, full training is offered, which includes a company induction, first aid, information on dementia, health and safety, food safety, infection control, handling medication and moving and handling service users, with the opportunity to achieve Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF) after the initial six months probationary period.
New recruits are given free uniforms, access to national staff discount scheme for all major brands as well as 28 days paid holiday, paid travel between calls and paid mileage.
We also offer FaceTime or Skype interviews to candidates in order to meet the demands of the modern jobseeker. Our view is that busy people wanting a career change can ‘meet’ the team via FaceTime or similar applications and find out about the roles it has to offer, as well as meet a couple of team members and, if they are about, also say ‘hello’ to a carer too.
