Professional Carer Location: Colchester Salary/Pay Rate: £10.50 per hour £500 Joining bonus
You're a caring person. And we wouldn't be the first to say it either. A career in Social Care is calling you!
You make people feel good. You're there for them when life gets tough, and you do it with a smile on your face. If that's you, then we're already big fans. We'd like to invite you to join our amazing team of Professional Carers in your local community. It's secure work. You'll get full training. And unlike many careers, you can progress whether you are part-time or full-time.
We have work across the Colchester area including Tiptree, Witham, Maldon, Marks Tey, Wivenhoe and surrounding areas.
Life gets more challenging as we get older, so our Carers are here to provide a helping hand, by visiting people in their own homes, once or maybe several times a day. You might be helping them get up, get washed and dressed. Or making sure they have grocery supplies and a hot meal. Or that things are tidy and safe around the home.
Our Carers are friends, allies, lifelines to people who really need them, sometimes in the final chapters of their lives. There can be sad moments, but here's the thing: you'll have helped. And if our existing carers are to be believed, you'll get a lot out of these relationships too.
Very few jobs have such an impact on people's lives. And being the caring human being you are, you're ideally cut out to join us.
We're stronger together.
CERA's not just about serving the community; it's about being one. You'll be working with people like you, who'll be there through the good times and the challenging times.
On joining us, you'll train for the industry-recognised Care Certificate, and you'll shadow experienced colleagues while you learn the ropes. Then there are branch teams and care specialists you can call on with concerns. And our technology, which lets you concentrate on care, instead of admin
Our latest innovative data-led technology, gives you the ability to record the vital signs of those you care for - this data is then fed back through to a team of nurses who will identify signs of infection or illness and ensures the service user is given the support they need- we've seen a 30% reduction in hospitalisations since launching!
We will applaud your hard work with decent pay rates and staff benefits. And being a fast-growth company on a mission to revolutionise the care sector, there are genuine promotion prospects to team leader, care specialist or into management.
