Casual Carer

The HICA Group have opportunities for dedicated, hardworking, and caring individuals who are keen to make a positive difference to the lives of our residents at our older people’s home, Wilton Lodge!

Our Casual team are important to us as they help to cover gaps in the rota whether this be due to absence, holidays or increased occupancy and relieve pressure on our existing care team.

Pay & Hours:

  • Rate of Pay – £10.50 per hour, increasing to £10.80 per hour upon completion of 6 months service
  • Hours of Work – Casual (as & when required)
  • Shift Pattern – Working to a rota covering 7 days per week!

What does Casual mean?

Your hours may vary week to week depending on availability, however we will always try and offer regular hours where possible.

You will receive the same induction and training as our employees, whilst being supported by our friendly and experienced colleagues.

Experience is not required, however if you have worked in a care setting previously this would be advantageous.

Why should I apply?

These are ideal opportunities to gain experience, without committing to a fixed number of hours and gives you the flexibility to work as little or as often as you like.

You will support our residents with everyday tasks such as personal care, mealtimes, and social activities, whilst promoting independence, dignity, respect. You will also keep care plans updated, and work as part of a team to ensure the highest standards of care are met.

All that we ask in return, is that once you have joined our Casual register, you keep us up to date with your availability, so that we can efficiently and effectively provide cover for our services where required.

If you have the right values and attitude, then we would love to hear from you!
