Work for Us

As a Home Carer every day is different, you may visit the same people each day, but each day can bring new challenges.

But can you imagine – you may be the only person that your client will see each day, the person who makes the difference. You put a smile on their face, you make sure they are warm and comfortable, well-fed, well-hydrated, clean and dressed as they always have been; you may help them to take their medication, to pay their bills, to call their family; you talk about their favourite television programmes and their hobbies, you listen to them.

Being a Home Carer and a Live In Carer are different.

To be a home carer you must have a vehicle for work, to be a Live In Carer you must be happy to be away from your own home for at least a week at a time. To work for Spring Care in any job you need to be professional, flexible, honest, caring, patient and reliable.

Live In Care

We usually only employ Live In carers who have experience in Live In Care, or those who are experienced in the care industry and want to work as Live In carers.

Unlike some other Live In Care providers that you may have worked for we assess all of our service user’s at their homes and design a care plan for you to follow each day that meets their needs. We ensure that your living environment is suitable and that you have all of the equipment needed to provide quality care and support. We manage all of our care packages, and we provide support to you as you need it.

We work hard to match you with service users we believe you will be compatible with. Shared interests are as important as practical experience. In all placements, you will need to have a good standard of spoken and written English. We are able to offer different work patterns to suit you.

Home Care

If you have experience in the care sector or believe you have the attitude and aptitude to become a PA/Care Worker, we would love to hear from you.

You will need to have a full driving license, use of a reliable vehicle for work and be happy to work on a rota system to cover early mornings, days, evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays.

We will also consider applications from people who are looking for part time hours, although these must include some evenings and alternate weekends.

We provide you with a mobile phone for work, uniform and suitable PPE.

Wellbeing

As your employer we want you to be happy at work, some of our staff have been with us since we opened in 2013.  We care about your wellbeing as a whole and we have a trained Mental Health First Aider who is available for you to speak to, and who can signpost you for support.

In early 2023 we were awarded the Bronze level from the Wellbeing at Work team in East Sussex and have completed a number of wellbeing initiatives for our staff

Training

As a new employee you will be given a Company Induction and training in Moving and Handling and Emergency First Aid.  If you have an NVQ in Health and Social Care and/or have completed the Care Certificate we will provide training to you in the specific needs of our service users which may include: PEG, MS, Parkinson’s, Dementia, Autism, Epilepsy, Diabetes.  You will then receive annual refresher training.  If you are new to the care industry and/or haven’t completed the Care Certificate we will provide you with a full training programme to complete the Care Certificate, as well as training in specific needs.  All staff are encouraged to complete NVQ training if they wish to, we can often gain Government funding for this.

Our training partner is Training for Care South East Ltd, who are endorsed by Skills for Care.
