Why work for us?
Saga Care at Home is a Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulated nurse led business with a ‘Good’ CQC rating, where we pride ourselves on enabling our Clients to remain independent in their own homes for longer. Thanks to people like you.
Am I right for Saga Care at Home?
If you have a passion for care and want to make a difference to the health and well-being of those in need of a helping hand, you have the qualities we want. We are looking for flexible and dedicated individuals who are driven by making a difference to others.
To provide the highest levels of home care, we make sure our live-in carers are properly looked after, with 20 days of holiday for full-time carers and a generous pension scheme. As with all Saga carers, you'll be a fully salaried healthcare professional with a permanent contract, giving you the security to form meaningful relationships with your clients and provide quality one-to-one care.
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.
All of our Carers must be drivers with their own transport as you may need to take our clients out to appointments, shopping, social activities etc.
