Job description

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, so all your travel between customers is paid.

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’re 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 this is why every day will be different.

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’s isn’t 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 don’t panic, we’ll 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’s important that you feel equipped for the role.

We understand that every member of our team has their own family to care for and this is why our role offers the flexibility to work around your own home life. You can choose between full-time or part-time work; all you have to do is simply tell us your availability. Although we try to be flexible where we can, we do require you to be flexible with us too, that’s why we will require you to work some evenings and alternate weekends. 

We can’t care for our customers if we don’t take care of our team so to make this possible, we offer: 

  • An excellent rate of £9.25ph - £11 ph 
  • 50p travel allowance (combined travel pay and mileage)
  • 28 days holiday pro rata
  • Full training induction and a 12-week mentor
