A career in care is hugely rewarding. You'll become a professionally registered practitioner who'll provide a lifeline to vulnerable residents in East Renfrewshire.
The roles are demanding but hugely rewarding, supporting adults and older people facing a range of challenges (including dementia, physical disability and ill health) with daily living activities, to enable them to live safely and independently within their own homes.
Our trained staff deliver a vital service, which enhances the quality of service users' lives, including administering medication, supporting with personal care tasks, using specialist equipment and keeping clear and accurate records of care delivery.
We need kind, caring and compassionate individuals who want to make a difference to people's lives and support them to remain independent at home in their own community. If that is you, start your career in Care at Home today.
No previous experience or qualifications are necessary other than a full current UK driving licence. All training will be provided by our in-house training team to give you the skills and confidence to enable you to succeed.
You must be legally entitled to live and work in the UK to apply. Under the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006, we are required to see documentation confirming this. Proof of your National Insurance Number (NI card, HMRC letter) and a full British birth certificate or a Passport issued in the United Kingdom or other documentation issued by the UK Border Agency will suffice if you are offered employment.
Please note East Renfrewshire Council does not provide Visa sponsorship.
