Kemble at Home is a multiple award-winning family company, started 28 years ago and rated ‘Outstanding for Caring’ by CQC.
We are looking for Care Assistants to help support our private clients in the community in and around Hereford.
As a Care Assistant with the Visiting Care Team, you will be visiting our clients in their homes – this is likely to be with different clients for an hour or so at a time. Some people will need help doing the shopping or keeping the house in order, others need support with medication or a medical condition, and many people may simply want some company during lonely days.
We ask that our carers are available for at least 16 hours per week and that they are able to offer alternate weekend availability. Carers are able to pick up extra visits at their convenience through their online carer portal.
We believe in fairly rewarding our carers for the important work they do and we are proud to offer some of the best rates of pay and support around.
No care experience is required (although it does help!) – we will offer you the training you need to feel confident in your role.
We like to think we are rather unique. Why? Because we have a great attitude, and we are proud of it. In 2019, we won the Care Employer Award at both the Great British Care Awards and the Hereford Times Health and Social Care Awards. We work hard to create a place where we can all feel safe, work hard, and have fun.
We are proud of our carers and the work they do, and many of them have been with us for decades. We are here to support you. We work with small teams that serve their own area in Herefordshire. Each team has its own Team Manager, all of whom have been carers so know what the job entails. They are there to help manage client files, match carers with clients, develop schedules, and are available around the clock to support the carers.
Before you begin lone working in the community, we will make sure you are thoroughly trained. You will receive 4 days of fully paid and certificated training, during which you will be fully equipped with the skills and knowledge you need to safely carry out your role.
As well as this, we will aim to shadow you into all of your regular clients with the clients PA or a regular carer. Within your shadow visits you will be able to introduce yourself and have the opportunity to observe the client’s routine and familiarise yourself with their home.
