If you’re looking for a change of career, you may wish to consider a role as a home care assistant. A career in visiting care or live in care gives you the unique opportunity to work in a fulfilling, rewarding role where you’re able to have a positive impact on other people’s lives.

Since 1989, Helping Hands carers have made a positive difference to tens of thousands of customers across the UK, and we’re looking for friendly, compassionate people to join our Colchester team and be part of the important work that we do for so many people.

Our carers truly are the heart and soul of our organisation, so we believe it’s important to recognise their efforts and provide them with a generous employment package.

Here are just some of the benefits of working for Helping Hands:

  • Competitive pay rates – our hourly rate of pay is considerably higher than the UK industry average
  • Flexible working arrangements – your work schedule and your weekly hours will be determined by you
  • Supportive environment – we provide all new carers with award-winning training, and will support your career journey every step of the way
  • Refer-a-friend scheme – successfully refer a friend to a care role with us and we’ll give you up to £250 as a thank you
  • Paid travel time – we pay carers for the time they spend travelling between care calls
  • Free Blue Light Card – with a free Blue Light Card, you’ll have access to numerous deals, discounts and offers
  • Work/life balance – our carers are contracted employees, which means you’ll accrue holidays and bank holidays as well as being enrolled on our company pension scheme
  • Progression and qualifications – we always support our carers to improve themselves personally and professionally, including through formal qualifications and training
