Come and join our team

We are very proud of our staff. One of our greatest achievements is that we attract optimistic, ‘can-do’ personalities who are good at seeing opportunities and who make things happen – and they often stay with us for a long time. Many of our staff have been with us for over a decade, which in a high turn-over sector like home care is exceptional.

We are always looking for new visiting carers (support by the hour) and live-in carers to join our team. Occasionally, we also have vacancies among our office team, to support our carers do what they do best.

 

Our current vacancies

As a carer in our hourly support team, you spend most of your time out in the community. Each client has their own small team of carers, and you work closely together with your colleagues.

 

You will get to know your clients very well, visiting them as and when needed to support them with their daily activities. Whether it is one hour in the morning, a few visits throughout the day or most of the day, you will be helping our clients live the life they want.

Being a live-in carer is incredibly rewarding. You get to know the person you live with very well – you know their habits and routines, their favourite tv-programmes, their families and friends, what food they like and what makes them happy. And often, you hear the most interesting life stories.

As a live-in carer, you are much more than just a ‘carer. You are a companion, a confidante, and often a friend. Many of our live-in carers stay with the same client for a long time and form lasting bonds.

Join our team as a visiting carer (support by the hour)

Kemble at Home is a multiple award-winning family company, started 28 years ago and rated ‘Outstanding for Caring’ by CQC.

We are looking for Care Assistants to help support our private clients in the community in and around Hereford.

About the role

As a Care Assistant with the Visiting Care Team, you will be visiting our clients in their homes – this is likely to be with different clients for an hour or so at a time, or one client for most of the day. Some people will need help doing the shopping or keeping the house in order, others need support with medication or a medical condition, and many people may simply want some company during lonely days. No care experience is required (although it does help!) – we will offer you the training you need to feel confident in your role.

We ask that our carers are available for at least 16 hours per week and that they are able to offer alternate weekend availability. Carers are able to pick up extra visits at their convenience through their online carer portal.

 

We believe in fairly rewarding our carers for the important work they do and we are proud to offer some of the best rates of pay and support around:

  • Pay starting at £10.52 an hour, increasing to up to £16.40 on bank holidays (as at April 2021)

  • 40p mileage allowance

  • 28 days holiday pro rata

  • Fully paid face to face training and ongoing training and support, with the opportunity to specialise in Dementia and End of Life Care

  • Flexible working

  • Pension scheme

  • A minimum of 1-hour placements

We like to think we are rather unique. Why? Because we have a great company culture and we do everything we can to make people feel heard, seen, and appreciated.

As a team, we challenge ourselves to be better people than we were yesterday. We trust people, we always start with ‘yes’, we show our best selves and we are happy to learn from our mistakes.

We attract optimistic, ‘can-do’ personalities who see opportunities and make things happen – and they rarely leave. Many of our team have been with us for over a decade, which is exceptional in the home care sector.

How will you be introduced to Kemble at Home and our clients?

Before you begin lone working in the community, we will make sure you are thoroughly trained. You will receive 5 days of fully paid and certificated training, during which you will fully equipped with the skills and knowledge you need to safely carry out your role.

 

As well as this, we will aim to shadow you into all of your regular clients with the clients PA or a regular carer. Within your shadow visits you will be able to introduce yourself and have the opportunity to observe the client’s routine and familiarise yourself with their home.

About Kemble at Home

We like to think we are rather unique. Why? Because we have a great attitude, and we are proud of it. In 2019, we won the Care Employer Award at both the Great British Care Awards and the Hereford Times Health and Social Care Awards. We work hard to create a place where we can all feel safe, work hard, and have fun.

 

We are proud of our carers and the work they do, and many of them have been with us for decades. We are here to support you. We work with small teams that serve their own area in Herefordshire. Each team has its own Team Manager, all of whom have been carers so know what the job entails. They are there to help manage client files, match carers with clients, develop schedules, and are available around the clock to support the carers.

 

What do you need?

  • The right to live and work in the UK.

  • A valid driving licence and your own car.

  • References - we ask all candidates who have been offered a job to provide at least two referees who we can contact for references.

  • To complete an enhanced DBS (criminal record) check. We are obliged to check for a criminal record if we offer you a job, but previous offences by no means mean that we cannot employ you. See our website to find out how we recruit people who have a criminal record.

How to apply

To apply or if you would just like to talk through, please get in touch with Alison, our Office Manager and HR  Administrator and most friendly person in Herefordshire!

Vacancy: live-in carer (on-going vacancy)

Join our team of live-in carers!

We are not your average home care company, we are Kemble at Home. We pride ourselves on looking after our staff – and our clients – well. We are an up-beat, loyal team – many of us have been with us for years.

The most rewarding job in the world

Being a live-in carer is incredibly rewarding. You get to know the person you live with very well – you know their habits and routines, their favourite tv-programmes, their families and friends, what food they like and what makes them happy. And often, you hear the most interesting life stories.

As a live-in carer, you are much more than just a ‘carer. You are a companion, a confidante, and often a friend. Many of our live-in carers stay with the same client for a long time and form lasting bonds.

We are here to support you

We know how demanding it is to be a live-in carer, and we will look after you. We go out of our way to make sure you have the freedom and confidence to trust your professional instinct.

This means we will prepare you well – you will be trained to support people in all areas of life, including cooking and housekeeping, supporting with medication and personal care and helping people get out and about.

You will get your own supporting manager in the office, who is there to answer your questions and help you when needed. They will touch base with you regularly to discuss how you are doing and whether there is anything we can do to help.

What to expect?

We are a strong and open team, and we love having new people join us.

  • You and the client agree how you would like to work – whether you are with them continuously or on a weekly routine

  • Each day, you will have a three-hour break which you can spend as you please.

  • We offer competitive pay rates, ordinarily from £655.20 to £836.64 a week (as at April 2021)

  • You are not alone – we are here to support you.

 

What do you need?

  • The right to live and work in the UK.

  • A valid driving licence and your own car.

  • References. We ask all candidates who have been offered a job to provide at least two references.

  • To disclose any criminal offences. We are obliged to check for a criminal record if we offer you a job, but previous offences by no means mean that we cannot employ you. See below to find out how we recruit people who have a criminal record. 

 

Are you an optimist, used to making things happen and do you enjoy putting other people first? Then you may find we get along very well.

How we recruit people with a criminal record

Social care roles are exempt under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. This means that we need to take our staff's criminal history into account when making recruitment decisions, to ensure that all our staff are suitable to work with our clients. Having a criminal record does not necessarily mean that we cannot employ you, and we encourage those with previous offences to apply.
