Care Assistant Job Description

Title: Care Assistant Stockport/Manchester South

 

While many Care providers only pay for your contact time, we believe that you should be paid for every minute that you are being a Bluebird Care Ambassador, even if you are sat in your car. Join our team and your salary will be by the hour and not per contact time.

 

Providing Quality Care

Bluebird Care started as a small family business in 2004, and today we are proud to be one of the largest providers of home care services across the UK. But what makes us different?
We are committed to keeping people in the comfort of their own home, so we help with anything from everyday tasks around our customers’ homes through to complex care needs. We appreciate that every customer is different, and therefore every day will be different.

 

If you are passionate about providing the very best care, then this role could be the role for you.

Roles and Responsibilities as a Care Assistant 

  • Providing personal care duties,
  • Administering medication,
  • Manual handling, using equipment where required,
  • Promoting customer health and well-being, enabling them to live their life to the full.

 

Your Experience and Suitability for The Care Assistant Role

It is not about previous experience. We want to ensure our customer receives the very best care and to do that we need people who are naturally compassionate, caring and patient. We want a team who genuinely cares for each of our customers as if it was their own family.

 

But do not panic, we will ensure you have all the right training and development because we care for our Care Assistants. After all, they care for our customers so it is important that you feel equipped for the role.

 

You must have:

  • Full and valid UK driving licence.
  • Access to a car
  • Right to work in the UK 
  • Excellent level of English

 

Because We Care About You 

 

We understand that every member of our team has their own family to care for and therefore our role offers the flexibility to work around your own home life. You can choose between full-time or part-time work; all you must do is simply tell us your availability. 

 

We cannot care for our customers if we do not take care of our team so to make this possible, we offer:

  • An excellent rate of £9.25ph. for the first twelve weeks
  • £9.50ph after probation for the first twelve months going to £9.75ph after twelve months.
  • Bank holidays double pay.
  • 28p mileage allowance 
  • 28 days holiday pro rata
  • Full training induction and a 12-week mentor
  • Ongoing training and support
  • Flexible working 
  • Pension scheme 
  • Smartphone technology so you can do everything at the tap of a finger.
  • Free uniform

 

But not only that, we take care of our team throughout the year, whether it is your birthday, Christmas, awards or simply because it is a Thursday. We are a family and we are here to look after you today, tomorrow and every other day.
