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?

Here at Bluebird Care territory, we’re committed to keeping people in the comfort of their own home. We began by offering home care to the elderly in our local area and when this became a success, we branched out to look at Live-In care. Our aim is to keep people independent in their own homes for as long as possible, so we take care of everyday tasks around our customers’ homes all the way through to complex care needs. We appreciate that every customer is different, and this is why every day will be different.

If you are passionate about providing the very best care, then this role could be the role for you.

We pay our successful candidates for their time during our 3-day induction training. All successful candidates would receive this within their first pay.

Your Experience and Suitability for the Live-in Care Assistant Role

Previous experience is a bonus but not a requirement. Live-in Care Assistants are matched to our customers to ensure our customers and you get along so the most important thing to us is that you are naturally compassionate, caring and patient.
