About The Role
We ask that our carers are available for a minimum of prt time hours every week and that they are able to offer alternate weekend availability. Carers are able to pick up extra work if they wish.
We believe in fairly rewarding our carers for the important work they do, and we are proud to offer some of the best rates of pay and support around:
- Pay starting at £10.30 an hour, increasing to up to £15.45 on bank holidays
- 40p Mileage allowance
- Paid Waiting Time
- Holiday pay
- Flexible Working
- Pension Scheme
You will complete an induction, achieving your care certificate. On completion of your induction, you will go out with an experienced carer to complete your shadowing before you start your lone working.
Who are Elgar Care?
Elgar Care truly believe in independence, and will always promote independence to all who use our services. We have a dedicated team at Elgar Care, with specific roles, who will ensure everything meets your needs. As a home care agency in Hereford we support people all across the county.
Every business has a beginning; spring 2016 Laura and Richard saw an opportunity for a new beginning, with a fresh style of delivering high quality home support and live-in care in Hereford. Things are always changing in Health and Social Care, but Laura and Richard believe everyone should receive care if they require the need, and no one should be left behind.
What do you need?
- The right to live and work in the UK.
- A valid driving licence and your own car – whilst this is essential, we have many cyclists and walkers who navigate themselves around Hereford! We are part of Greener Footprints ’30 for 2030′ with the Herefordshire Council, with the plan to reduce our carbon footprint, with the long term of having net zero.
- References – we ask all candidates who have been offered a job to provide at least two referees who we can contact for references.
