Job Ref: 12725  |   Abingdon

Care is at the heart of everything that we do and this is no different in the service that we provide to clients in our Extra Care Housing Schemes. As a Domiciliary Carer you will work as part of a larger care team and enable clients to lead an independent a lifestyle as possible and what they want.

Zero hours contracts can be particularly appealing to people who need the flexibility of being able to turn down work, or not having a particular schedule

It can also be good for those that don’t mind working unusual hours outside the standard 9-5 that many jobs offer. You can also, in theory, take holiday whenever you want without having to get it cleared from your boss first.

Taking on a job with a zero hours contract can be a great way to get your foot in the door of a company you really want to work for if they don’t have a full-time fixed contract available for you.

Making yourself known while working on a flexible contract can be a good way to make yourself available for consideration should something more permanent arise. Make the most of the flexibility by showing your availability to work at short notice and at unusual times if possible.

It’s also a good chance to get to know colleagues and management of a place before committing to work there full-time.

As there are no set hours, one of the upsides of zero hours contracts is the ability to pack in extra hours as they become available, so if you need extra money one month, you might be able to work twice the hours you worked the previous month and earn extra money.

You will visit clients within their household and deliver a personalised care plan. Your care duties will therefore include assisting the clients with daily living activities while maintaining their dignity, privacy and independence as far as possible.

Should you have further queries, please let us know, we would love to hear from you!
