Home Care Assistant (Bank)

City, Davidsons Mains, Edinburgh Airport, Leith Docks, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, GBP 8.50 per hour, Temporary

Posted: 16 days ago


Want to make a real difference by providing compassionate palliative care, allowing people to live in their home environment with dignity and respect?

Can you offer your time, support and companionship to our clients and their loved ones, helping reduce their pain, stress and anxiety?

If your answer is yes, come and join us at Eidyn Care.

We are a new care at home company setting up in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. We have recently been registered by the Care Inspectorate Scotland and are in the process of training a team of experienced caregivers.

As we only have a few clients at the moment the job we are offering is on a zero hours contract basis to begin with. We envisage all our bank staff starting with Eidyn Care whilst continuing with their existing jobs and all reference requests will make this clear.

We will pay an hourly rate starting from £8.50 up to £11 per hour depending on experience. You will be expected to attend an induction day where you will cover subjects such as Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults, Lone Working, CPR, First Aid and Health and Safety and you will receive a certificate to confirm attendance. You will also need to attend a beginner / refresher course on Moving and Handling on a separate date. These 2 days of training are compulsory before you can undertake any shifts for Eidyn Care Ltd.

You will need to have a PVG check completed, confirm you are eligible to work in this country and be registered with SSSC (Scottish Social Services Council). Cost to you are £18 if you have an existing PVG certificate or £59 if you do not. Registration with SSSC costs £15 at the moment, rising to £25 in September 2017. We ask you to cover these costs at present.

As the business grows we will be able to offer more hours to you and eventually to take you on permanently either full or part time with flexible working hours.

We are passionate about looking after people in their own homes, providing care and comfort ensuring people can live their lives with dignity and respect. In order to do this we need a dedicated team of enthusiastic, flexible and reliable caregivers. You are the most important part of Eidyn Care Ltd and because of this we will empower you to look after your clients to a high standard, providing excellent training and career opportunities.

We ask you to have:

* At least 2 years experience as a paid carer preferably with palliative experience.

* Excellent social and communication skills

* Knowledge of / training in moving and handling, CPR, infection control, medication administration

* PVG checked and SSSC Registered (or willing to undertake)

* Level 2 SVQ in Health and Social Care or willing to work towards it.

* Access to transport (car preferable)

We offer you:

* Flexible working hours (Hours can be worked alongside current role)

* Great rates of pay

* Free Induction training day

* Free Uniform

* Holiday pay (pro rata)

* Enhanced pay for weekend and bank holidays

* Ongoing training
