Job description

Bluebird Care (Bedford) are looking to expand their fast growing live-in care assistant team.

We are looking for people who are dedicated and passionate about making a difference to other people's lives and who want a career they can be proud of. If this sounds like you, then this could be the right opportunity to get your career started with Bluebird Care.

The role of a live-in care assistant is similar to other care assistants, with one exception, you are not a visitor, you are in the privileged position of living within the customer's home. As a live-care assistant you are able to build a special relationship with your customer and become a part of their household. This can be extremely rewarding and offers immense job satisfaction.

Our customers rely upon their live-in care assistant for support in all areas of their daily lives. The service gives customers and family members the reassurance of 24 hour support in the comfort of their own homes. However as a live-in care assistant you will not be expected to be on duty for 24 hours a day, you will have pre-arranged rest breaks. You will work as part of a fabulous caring team of staff who provide tailored support for our customers in their own homes.

Benefits of working for Bluebird Care (Bedford) include:

  • Fantastic rate of pay starting at £542.50/ week going up to £682.50/week dependent upon the level of care required.
  • A chance to learn while you earn, we offer nationally accredited courses in Health & Social Care levels 2-5
  • Company Pension Scheme
  • Free Car Breakdown Cover (if you use your vehicle for work)
  • Comprehensive training programme tailored to you and your level of experience.
  • A chance to develop your career and progress into a management position.
  • 28 days paid holiday
  • Bi-monthly staff awards
  • Long service awards
  • Grocery shopping prize draw.

Travel expenses incurred during your placement will be paid in full.

All training expenses are paid in full. Training will be held in our office just outside of Bedford town centre.

Although the role does not require you to be a driver it is an advantage to have a full UK driving license and your own vehicle.

Experience and understanding of adult social care is an advantage but not necessary as full training is provided.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone to start their career with Bluebird Care Bedford. If you would like to know more about the live-in care assistant vacancies we have then please give our friendly office team a call on: 01234 211481 or click the button below to fill out our contact form.
