Working for Bluebird Care is like being part of a family. You laugh, you cry, you share good times and bad, you even eat cake together on special occasions, but mostly you just feel like you belong to something special.
Our carers are an exceptional group of people who all have fundamental attributes that make them great at what they do. The key skills needed to be a great carer can be taught and developed, but it’s these natural personal attributes that provide the ‘magic’ that makes an excellent carer. To work with Bluebird Care, it is essential that you have:
Genuine care for others: with empathy, compassion and a friendly approach
The ability to learn: with a positive attitude to taking on new skills and experiences
Great communication and listening skills: being able to keep calm and communicate clearly is vital
Loyalty: our best carers have an inherent loyalty to customers, with a strong work ethic and engagement with the Bluebird Care Guildford & Waverley team
Readiness to have fun: we work hard, but we firmly believe that having fun and enjoying our work sets us apart. There is a real sense of togetherness and team spirit at Bluebird Care Guildford & Waverley.
We recruit people who have the perfect blend of these special qualities and this means they can make a hugely positive difference to someone’s life. Previous experience is not essential as training is provided. Having access to transport and flexible availability is also advantageous.
Why Bluebird Care Guildford & Waverley could be right for you
Many different people are suited to this role. A job with Bluebird Care Guildford & Waverley offers superb flexibility, development and a real work-life balance. It’s perfect if you’re looking for a job with real heart and meaning, plus a good helping of laughter and fun too!
A role with purpose: some of our mature carers come to us looking for a new challenge, a change of direction, or a second career. They may have cared for a loved one and found it deeply rewarding, or they just want to ‘give something back’ and do work with a real purpose.
A role with balance: other carers may have a family, with school age children, and are looking for rewarding work that flexes around their timetable. They tend to be very focused and extremely organised.
A role with prospects: people who feel that they were ‘born to care’ are often happy to fit around the different hours required for the role – such as breakfast or bedtime work and even live-in care – and they often have a lifestyle that enables them to do so. They are keen to learn and enjoy the continuous training and career progression we offer.
