Following on from their recent Outstanding rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the St Albans office of award-winning care company, Home Instead Senior Care, are currently looking to expand their care team, creating 75 jobs this year.
The company provide care in the home of their clients and pride themselves on recruiting local people to deliver that care.
This works well for their clients as these caregivers have shorter distances to travel and are familiar with the area.
As the UK’s population ages, the need for care services continue to increase.
Recent figures show that by 2025 there will be over 13 million people in the UK aged over 65, many of whom will require care.
Speaking about the need to expand the team of caregivers, Fiona Harrall, co-owner of Home Instead said: “Our caregivers are a diverse team and come from various walks of life, ranging from parents, students, retired people looking to be ‘un-retired’, those working for us as a second job or those who just want to make the most of a spare few hours during the week.
“Our part-time flexible hours are a perfect fit. Many of our caregivers have no experience in the care industry but want to give something back to the community by supporting the elderly.
“Once on board we provide caregivers with our award-winning training and we’re always there for them, providing ongoing mentoring and development.
“Our training programmes ensure that everyone gains the right skills and knowledge needed to be a confident in their job. If you are interested in joining our amazing team, please do get in touch.”
On completion of their initial training, caregivers will work towards the nationally recognised ‘Care Certificate’ and are encouraged to develop their skills further with additional qualifications – such as QCF and our bespoke Dementia Care Training Programme which is accredited by City & Guilds.
