Work for us
Ashley Care has led from the front in the care sector since 1987, and in homecare specifically since 2003. We are a family-run company with a strong family ethos. We offer flexible working hours to fit around our staff and their families, as well as competitive rates of pay. Unlike many home care providers, we operate a weekly payroll, so you are renumerated quicker for the work you do. Delivering care throughout the Southend Borough allows us to create small, focused areas of care needs, meaning less travel time and greater efficiency for staff working out in the community. Whether you are new to social care or an experienced professional, we have training programmes to support your ongoing professional development. At Ashley Care, everyone takes pride in the vital work we do. As well as taking care of our clients, we take care of our staff too.
Not sure if working in the care profession is for you? We have been working with Skills for Care to dispel many of the myths around working in care, and to counter some common misconceptions. Take a look at Working in Care – Common Myths.
So, come and join us and be part of a profession to be proud of.
Community Care & Risk Assessor
Hours: Part-time position – 20 hrs per week
We have a new opportunity for a reliable team player with home care experience, good communication and excellent people skills to join our busy team as a Community Care & Risk Assessor.
This important role involves visiting all our newly referred clients. You will complete both person-centred care assessments and home risk assessments to ensure all their needs are fully audited. You will also need to attend cases where re-assessment is required urgently – for example, where a client’s health or mobility may have deteriorated suddenly, and extra care or equipment is necessary for them to remain living in their own home.
We can be flexible on how your hours are delivered – i.e. working mornings or afternoons to suit. Whilst this is not a hands-on care role, we do reserve the right to ask for help to ensure our care visits are responded to in times of emergency. The successful candidate will have general IT skills, experience in care work and have use of a car to visit clients in the borough of Southend. You will be methodical in your approach to auditing the needs of vulnerable people and have a solutions-driven attitude, reporting back to our senior managers.
Immediate start with ongoing training provided. Salary of circa £10,500pa (20hrs)
Paid weekly with a paid contribution to petrol costs and paid expenses.
