Visiting Care Roles: Becoming A Bright Carer
If you’re warm-hearted, curious, and looking for a long-term relationship with an employer, we’re offering the opportunity for a select handful of the sector’s best carers to join our local dream teams and be part of something amazing.
As a visiting Bright Carer, you’ll provide care and companionship for our elderly clients in the comfort of their own home. You’re on hand to assist with all aspects of daily life, from personal care, to household chores, to trips out and about; but most importantly, you’re there for those little moments in life, like reading the papers together, or drinking a cup of tea in the garden.
You’ll work in a small team of carers to look after a client, and will have a regular group of clients. We aim for a minimum of two-hour visit and during this time, you’ll be:
- Assisting clients with personal care, such as getting up, washed, dressed, and toileting
- Helping clients with light housekeeping, such as cleaning, laundry, cooking
- Going on outings, whether that be grocery shopping, social events, or hospital appointments
- Providing friendly and ongoing companionship
- Supporting clients with taking their medication, or picking up prescriptions
Why Bright Care
What makes us different? We employ our visiting carers in salaried position.
No more zero-hour contracts. Instead, our visiting carers are given a fixed-salary position with us, where you’ll work a maximum of five days per week in six-hour shifts (one day with a twelve-hour shift), and have two weekends guaranteed off a month.
What’s more, becoming a carer with Bright Care is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a highly motivated and enthusiastic team. We’re thrilled to have won some recent and notable awards that showcase our dedication to employees:
- The Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies To Work For 2018
- We’re #10 in the Best Scottish Companies To Work For in 2018
- Scottish Care Housing Support Provider of the Year 2017
There are other benefits too:
- A competitive salary and set up that allows long-term and meaningful relationships to flourish.
- Provision towards regulatory items. We’ll cover half the cost of your SVQ2, and the full cost of your PVG, and your SSSC registration for your first year. We’ll also cover the admin cost to upgrade your car insurance to business insurance.
- All mileage is paid at 30p per mile, and we’ll cover public transport costs.
- Full and intensive training from our own Bright Care Academy. We’ll make sure you feel confident and equipped to do your role.
- Your uniform and PPE.
- The opportunity to make a real and long-term difference to older people’s lives.
