Work for us

Work for a company that puts care first

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.

Here’s a list of our current vacancies. If you would like any further information, please email or call 01702 343789.

Current Job Opportunities

Response Care Worker

Hours: 40 hrs per week guaranteed

We are looking for experienced carers to play an important role in supporting our community care teams as a Response Care Worker.

Response Care Workers act as our emergency back-up, ensuring the quality of care is maintained throughout all the services we offer. You will effectively be on ‘standby’, reacting and responding promptly to the demands of a busy service, day-to-day – coordinating daily workloads for staff and providing client care where needed, during unplanned absences or for urgent referrals.  The role is very broad and diverse, with no two days likely to be the same.

You will have experience in community care and already have, or be willing to work towards, a Diploma in Health & Social Care at Level 3. You will be an excellent communicator, able to talk with clients and their families with empathy, clarity and professionalism. Most working hours will be spent out in the community attending to our most vulnerable clients’ needs in their own homes.

Care calls will be covered in shifts from 07:00 – 23:00, working over a four-shift system. This will involve alternate weeks, with the availability of early and late shifts.   Remuneration is hourly with good pay rates with guaranteed 40hrs per week, including alternate weekends and paid travel time between clients.  You will only work within the Southend Borough but will need a full driving license and access to your own vehicle.

Ashley Care is one of Southend’s leading and longest-serving social care providers.

  • We are a family-run company with a strong family ethos.
  • Our staff have flexible working hours to fit around them and their families.
  • If you are an experienced professional, we have a training programme to support your ongoing development where appropriate.
  • We deliver care under contract to the Southend Borough Council and the Local Health Authority.
  • We are a happy, positive team with client and staff wellbeing at the heart of the company.

Everyone here at Ashley Care, from our senior management to those working out in the community, takes pride in the important work we do. We consider it our privilege to serve our clients with respect, compassion and dignity at all times. This core belief is at the heart of the company and underpins its success and the quality care outcomes we can achieve.

We would love you to join us in a profession to be proud of.   To apply, or for more information, contact Ashley Care on 01702 343 789 or email our HR Manager
