WHY WORK WITH US?
We are passionate about providing assistants that genuinely care about the people they support and thats why we get so many recommendations.
Our clients trust us to provide people who will look after them as if they were their own family. They don't want just anyone supporting them, they want someone who takes an interest in what they have to say, their opinions, someone to interact with them and form a friendship.
We work better as a team and know you are what makes us great! That's why we truly value our assistants and take the time to listen to you and to provide support whenever you need assistance. We are not a care agency and so our assistants earn considerably more per hour for the brilliant work they do.
Our visits are a minimum of one hour giving you the time to get to know your clients and their routines.
We’re looking for people with the personality and passion to build great relationships with our clients and to make a difference to someones life.

frequently asked questions
What does the role entail? Your role is to enable our clients to remain living independently within their own homes and to listen to their needs and support them in a way in which you yourself would want to be supported. As each client is different, each role will be tailored to meet the needs of the client. These may include providing light domestic duties, personal care, companionship, meal preparation, socialising or helping with their hobbies.
I don't have any experience is that a problem? At Your Care we're not worried if you haven't any experience, it's more important that you are a caring, friendly and compassionate individual with an interest in helping people. We can provide you with any training required.
How do I get started? We are looking for assistants with great people skills, who can listen as well as interact with their clients and share our passion for providing friendship and support. Before we meet we like to have a discussion over the phone to try to get to know you a little. You will then be invited to come meet us face to face to have a chat about how we work and to see if you mirror our values. We need to get to know you as we match our assistants with our clients based on their hobbies and interests as well as their needs. We want you to be happy in your role and that means placing you with the right clients.
When would I be able to commence working? Once we have decided you are right to join our team we will then start the recruitment process. This involves two reference checks, one of which must be your last employer. You will be required to undergo an enhanced criminal records check. We also check your driving license, right to work in the UK and verify your address. Once all the checks have been completed you are then ready to commence meeting our clients.
What hours can I work? You will need to be available a minimum of 10 hours per week. We place you with a small group of clients who you will visit on a regular basis at the times agreed each week. There is always the opportunity to increase these hours on a temporary basis as and when required.
What training will I receive? You will have access to training required for the role you undertake. All of our training is provided by our local council and is classroom based. We encourage our assistants to undertake as much training as possible to enable them to have a varied role working with a range of clients.
