Bespoke car user

Bespoke Care is a home care provider working exclusively in Huddersfield.  Due to increasing work opportunities we have a need to recruit Care Assistants to expand our service within the area.

You would be responsible for meeting the support needs of our service users, in a way that respects the individual’s dignity and promotes their independence. You would be expected to travel to the service user’s home and assist them with agreed daily tasks.

The type of support that you would be providing is no different to what would reasonably be given by a member of the person’s family. For instance, you may be providing help with bathing and dressing or domestic support.

Principal Responsibilities

Your role would include helping service users with tasks such as:

  • Washing & dressing and personal appearance.
  • Shopping & meal preparation
  • Assisting with the management medication
  • Support with daily routines
  • Socialising and leisure activities
  • Helping service users access the community

What we are looking for

We do not always look for previous experience as it isn’t essential. We are seeking caring people who understand the immense satisfaction that can be gained from offering assistance and a listening ear to someone who, through a variety or hardships or just plain old age, needs your help.

We ensure that all our staff have equal opportunities to develop and progress, in keeping with your own personal and professional goals. We place a high emphasis in training & development and understand the confidence and pride that having appropriate training can instil to staff in carrying out their job. A comprehensive induction training package will be undertaken by all new workers prior to commencing lone work in the field, this training will include a period of on the job shadow training with an experienced member of staff. All Care Assistants that are new to care work will undertake the Care Certificate within their initial 12-week induction period covering 15 separate care standards.

  • Self-motivated, well-organised & reliable

  • 7am – 1.00pm

  • Weekend working. You will need to be able to commit to 1 in every 2 weekends or a permanent shift each weekend.

Successful candidates must meet the following requirements for the role:

  • Due to the nature of home care it is expected that successful candidates live locally and have access to a reliable car.
  • Own a smart phone to enable the use of our mobile app. Our Employee Mobile App removes the need for paper based rotas and timesheets. Communicating changes to rotas is managed automatically which dramatically helps our on-call team through having direct access to the real time status of service delivery.
