We are recruiting Home Care Assistants to work in clients homes in both the Peterborough and Grantham areas. We operate within 15 miles of the town centres, so cover the surrounding villages in each location. 

What do we look for? 

More than anything, we are looking for carers that care about the individuals they support. This means building meaningful relationships with them, showing compassion and respect for their individual needs and wants.

Equally important is the need to be professional, and reliable. Our users depend on us, and we need to ensure the quality of service we provide is of the highest standards. It is important therefore, to be punctual for visitations, and professional at all times.

In return, we offer competitive rates of pay, comprehensive training, and genuine opportunities for career enhancement. We try and set ourselves apart from other care companies by offering guaranteed hours contracts to our care workers, of either 10, 20 or 30 hours depending on availability.

I love working in care because no two days are the same , it is interesting work meeting new people, and talking with them about themselves. Especially if someone talks to me about their memories of the “olden days “

I love working in care because I find it very rewarding to provide quality of care to my customers the way I would a loved one.

When I was 18 I wanted a career where I could help people, so I went into care and never looked back.

No two days are the same , it is interesting work meeting new people and talking with them about themselves. Especially if someone talks to me about their memories of the “olden days “.

I am especially interested in listening to their stories of world war 2 (if they are willing) as it makes me feel grateful to be here today and I give thanks to them for providing protection for future generations to come.

Not only do I help my customers to live quality of life but my customers also help me lead a morally good working life and I feel good about that .

I couldn’t go back to other types of work now as I would find it a little dull.
