Home Instead Farnborough Farnham Fleet is a family-owned home care provider. Rated as “Outstanding” by the Care Quality Commission, we enable adults to remain safe and independent in their own homes. To provide outstanding care, we need outstanding people both in the office and out in the field. Our continued success depends upon identifying, recruiting, training and supporting the right Caregivers.

Our caregivers work part-time hours and have flexible schedule. Many choose this role because they want to do something good and share our values which is to change the face of ageing in the UK.

We are looking for a driven, inspiring, and confident recruiter to work in our offices in Farnborough and in our local community (including Fleet and Farnham) and support us by growing our team of caregivers. The successful candidate will be creative and experienced in in-house recruitment and will be able to demonstrate delivering real difference in their previous roles. Your role will involve driving our recruitment campaigns and supporting candidates throughout the application process.

We are not looking for a “volume recruiter”, rather a business development professional who can build relationships and identify and bring in the ideal candidates who thrive in our caregiver role. Its expected that the successful candidate after a few month will also network for clients when in the community.

We are an established office and have an extensive database of local contacts whom have supported us in the past and will be your first point of call. In addition, you will be supported by an experienced member of our office team who will process the candidate's applications after successful interview and coordinate their training as well as support them after their first visit with the client.

  • Respond promptly and professionally to all employment enquiries
  • Interview and assess suitable potential candidates in line with our assessment criteria and support them through the recruitment process
  • Maintain our recruitment databases
  • Assist and advise the care management team with matching new Caregivers to clients
  • Be responsible for managing current recruitment sources e.g. job boards, community notice boards, Facebook and social media
  • Participate in the on call rota

The candidate will be interviewed by all key members of the office team and should be comfortable to attend more than one round of interviews.

The start date is April 2018 and the full-time salary will be within £25,000 to £30,000 depending on experience and hours. Full time preferred but for the ideal candidate we would consider 4 days for a pro-rata salary.

The deadline is 15th March 2018 but the applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis so early application is recommended.
