We are expanding our home care support team in the Doncaster & surrounding areas including Hatfield and Thorne and are looking for caring, reliable and hard working individuals to promote independence, whilst actively encouraging and supporting with making informed decisions.

Due to the range of locations, it is essential you hold a UK driving licence & have access to your own vehicle.

We are recruiting for caring individuals to cover our evening calls where the hours working are between 3pm – 10pm. The evening call will include limited personal care as you will be helping our clients settle for the evening.

The company is unable to sponsor the employment of international workers in this role. You will be required to provide evidence of your right to work in the UK.

The Role:

As a Home Care Assistant you would deliver high quality care, visiting service users in their own homes. You would be responsible for ensuring they remain independent for as long as possible.
