At Home From Home Care, we believe that to deliver exceptional care, you need a happy and motivated team.
That’s why we’ve gone above and beyond to create a work environment that’s bursting with benefits, bonuses, and boundless possibilities.
From pay that reflects the importance of improving people’s lives to remarkable career growth, and a whole range of wellbeing initiatives, we’ve got it all covered.
We truly believe that joining Home From Home Care might just be the best decision you’ll ever make. Here’s why:
Great work with great pay
Don’t worry. We’re not one of those employers that shouts about all the benefits their staff receive and then gives them rubbish pay.
Instead, we’ve always believed that work should be rewarding in every sense of the word, including financially.
We’re an accredited Living Wage Employer, and last year we supported our colleagues with a 10.5% pay rise. This year, we extended our attendance bonus up to 6%.
With the 6% bonus just for turning up to work, entry-level pay is the equivalent of £12.23 per hour or £25,512 per year!
And that’s not all! Here are some of the other financial benefits we offer:
- £100 bonus on successful completion of probationary period
- £300 for referring a friend
- Weekend shifts paid at an extra £1 per hour
- Overtime paid within 24 hours for qualifying shifts
- Claim up to £100 per month EASE payments twice per year
- Stand-by sleep in paid at £81.81 plus 6% loyalty bonus where applicable
Real career progression
Another one of our beliefs when it comes to looking after our people is investing in your professional development.
The media may portray working in care as a dead-end job, but at Home From Home Care we offer over 90 different job roles and we help you to follow your interests and progress your career in a way that works for you.
Whether that’s gaining IT skills with our innovative New Model of Care, training as an HR or marketing expert, or progressing into a management role, we support you every step of the way with fully funded training.
What’s more, we also offer a mentoring scheme and monthly one-to-ones to give you feedback and guidance to get you where you want to be.
With all of this investment in you and your development, most people see their careers flourish. In fact, the majority of people earn 53% more after five years with us.
Looking after your wellbeing
As well as looking after your bank balance and career progression, we’re also passionate about looking after you.
We champion work-life balance and offer a competitive annual leave package that’ll see you gain additional days of leave after you’ve worked here for two, five and ten years.
You’ll also benefit from:
- A dedicated wellbeing team
- Free mental health support
- Free meals when on shift
- Cycle to work scheme
Colleagues also take advantage of regular opportunities to get involved in fun activities and days out with our individuals. From archery and amusement parks to zorbing and zoos, we facilitate almost any day out or activity to suit the interests of our individuals.
With all that in mind, it’s no wonder that 94% of our colleagues say they’d recommend working here to a friend.
