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)

We are not your average home care company, and we are looking for not so average people who are optimistic, have a can-do attitude, and who are at their best when they can help someone else.

About us

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.

About the role

The way we work is also rather unique. We have only private clients, which means that we can take the time to build close relationships with our clients and support them exactly the way they want it.

Being a carer with us is more like being a ‘Personal Assistant’ – it all revolves around the bond between you and your client. We make sure you are matched with clients you naturally get on with, and we give you the freedom to organise your role in a way that suits you and the client. 

You are part of a small team of carers, who work closely together to decide how they can best support each client. This is one of the things we are most proud of: our carers play a crucial role in deciding how we support people. After all, our carers know our clients best and they are often best placed to agree what works and doesn’t work.

We will make sure you have everything you need to feel confident in your role. You will be thoroughly trained, you will have your own Team Manager to support you, and you always have your team behind you.

What we offer

Above all, we offer you a great place to work in a fun team of capable people.

We will give you the chance to develop yourself. Before you start, we offer you a (fully paid and certificated) six-day training course. Moreover, we will encourage you to follow a range of specialist courses, take apprenticeships, or explore a next step in your career (e.g., why not become a Care Manager, On-Call Manager, or Trainer?).

We will give you the flexibility to balance work with your personal life. You can start and finish at a time that works for both you and your clients, pick up extra work when you have spare time, take plenty of holiday, or earn a bit more by working nights or weekends.

And what’s more, all that comes with excellent pay rates starting at £9.58 per hour.

 

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.

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 £602.00 to £768.60 a week.

  • 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.
