Why become a Care Assistant

Published: 02/03/2020

With the UK's ever-ageing population, there is a growing requirement for great people to provide care to those in need.

There are a number of reasons that people choose to work in the care industry, and more specifically within a homecare role.

Sense of achievement
Working with vulnerable people and making a noticeable and measurable impact on their lives is one of the most rewarding jobs a person can do. Knowing you have helped to make a difference in someone else's life is priceless.
Meeting new people
Working as a care assistant gives you the opportunity to meet new people from various backgrounds and with differing needs. You will get to know these people, listen to their stories and support them in living a comfortable and independent life.
No two days are the same
Our homecare service means you may work with different customers in various locations, giving the opportunity to enhance your communication skills in a variety of settings. Each customer is unique and we have a tailored approach to every customer, valuing them as a person and their care needs.

Good rates of pay
Generally speaking, the rates of pay that you can attract working in a homecare setting are much more attractive than that of a residential home or in the hospitality sector. There are also opportuities to develop your career into various roles and specialisms depending on your interest.
Time to yourself
Although the main aspect of work is caring for people in their own homes, there is a small aspect of travel between calls. Most people see this as a good opportunity to gather their thoughts before visiting the next customer.
Hours to suit
Unlike many other roles, working in care can fit around your family life and other commitments. We offer flexibility on hours and days, from full-time to part-time roles.
