We’re looking for caring and enthusiastic Home Care Assistants to join our Home Care teams based in Leicester, Sheffield, Mansfield, Warwick, Derby, Grantham and Newark.

No previous experience or qualifications required.

Becoming a Fosse Care Worker

We understand that a home is more than just your house; it’s your neighbours, your community and the comfort you find in the park your children played in or the shopkeeper who never forgets to send a birthday card.

That’s why we put so much focus into providing the very best care for our clients, ensuring a safe and comfortable environment which allows them to stay happy and healthy in their homes, for longer.

In order to fulfil this promise to our clients, we need hard-working, compassionate and caring workers to go into the homes of our clients and provide both personal care and support services. We need carers who would like to make a difference, with the foresight to always put the thoughts, feelings and needs of our service users first.

Benefits:

Our rate of pay and hours

Our care staff are paid up to £10 per hour, depending on location and experience. We pay all travel time between calls and mileage costs on top and offer flexible working hours – from 0-hour to fixed contracts of up to 40 hours – depending on your availability.

Free smartphone

Our care plan system is entirely paperless, so we provide all carers with a free smartphone to be used to monitor and update care plans and calls. We understand you won’t want to carry two phones around all day, so we make allowances for personal calls and texts as part of your contract.

Free in-house training and support

To be a carer you need passion, patience and a caring, pleasant attitude; what you don’t need is years of studying at university or previous experience! As long as you exhibit the attitude we’re after we can train you in everything you need to be a confident, capable Fosse Carer. We also offer additional courses and qualifications to our staff to help you develop professionally throughout your career.

Anything else?

Our staff are all enrolled into the company pension scheme and are entitled to up to 28 days of holiday a year. Some of our service users require care 365 days a year, so we make sure our staff still get the entitlement if they choose to work a bank holiday or two.

What’s more, if you have any friends which you think would be interested in a career with Fosse, we will award you with a fantastic cash bonus per referral, as part of our ‘Refer-a-Friend’ scheme.

Responsibilities:

Every client we work with is entirely different, with varying needs, capabilities and personalities. That means what works for one service user might not be appropriate for another, and so it is important to always use the Care Plan in place.

Your Care Plan is your client’s care Bible. It will let you know of any specific requirements, such as; allergies, critically timed calls, the medication needed, physical and mental capacity and even religious needs and the details of immediate family members.

Every client is assessed prior to us working with them and given a personalised and agreed upon Care Plan, which you will use to:

  • Promote and encourage a healthy, happy and independent life for our clients

  • Communicate with relevant people to ensure all needs are met

  • Encourage, assist or provide personal care to clients

  • Prepare and assist with meal times when needed

  • Prompt and administer medication (training/support provided)

  • Meet the needs of the client
