Job description

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.

You must have:

  • Full and valid UK driving licence
  • Access to a car
  • Right to work in the UK 
  • Excellent level of English

 

Because We Care About You 

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 full availability on 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 £9.80ph weekdays. £10.00ph on weekends increasing to £19.60ph on bank holidays (double pay!).  
  • 20p mileage allowance 
  • 28 days holiday pro rata
  • Full training induction and a 12-week mentor
  • Ongoing training and support 
  • Many perks and benefits including Blue Light Card at the end of probation 
  • Flexible working 
  • Pension scheme 
  • Smartphone technology so you can do everything at the tap of a finger
  • Free uniform

 

But not only that, we take care of our team throughout the year, whether it's your birthday, Christmas or simply because it’s a Thursday. We’re a family and we’re here to look after you today, tomorrow and every other day after that.
