Work for Saga as a carer…
We are recruiting a number of Care Worker job opportunities at Saga Healthcare, part of the Saga Group, as a result of a period of exciting significant growth. We are looking for Live-In and Visiting Care Workers to join our committed care team based throughout Hertfordshire. You will join us on a permanent basis and will receive a market leading salary of £17,940 per annum (£9.20 per hour). There is also the option to earn £1 more per hour at weekends within this role plus premiums for sleep-in, waking nights and bank holiday working. Please note there are both full and part time positions available.
Saga is the UK’s leading provider of insurance, travel, personal finance and healthcare products and services tailored to the needs of the over 50s.
Through their amazing work, our healthcare team understand the value of the home and it is our aim to help our Clients remain in their homes for as long as possible. At Saga Healthcare our Carers tell us they feel valued and that is why our carer careers offer them the opportunity to progress and develop in a nurturing environment.
About the Care Worker role:
You will be helping to assist our clients through all areas of personal and domestic care. The Live-In Carer role will involve living in the client’s home for 2 weeks at a time (length of assignment can be extended).
The Visiting Carer role will involve visiting our client’s home on a regular basis. Both roles will see you helping our client’s with their daily needs, from popping to the shops and fixing up lunch, to helping our clients with their daily routine - you will be a friend, a companion and the light of someone’s day.
Skills and experience required of our Care Worker
We believe that all our Carers should have the skills and time to care. That is why experience is desirable, but not essential, as you will be fully trained to deliver a quality service to our Clients. So whether you come from a completely different industry, have looked after family or have a background in care, we would love to hear from you.
If you are naturally caring, compassionate and considerate, you have the qualities we require to become our Care Worker. We are looking for flexible and dedicated individuals who are driven by making a difference to others. You must also be willing to work as part of a team as well as independently. You will thrive on delivering an excellent level of customer service and show dignity and respect at all times.
