We have a thorough but efficient home care recruitment process
We welcome job applications from people with no professional experience through to those with many years of experience in specialist areas such as nursing. The key to being successful is your ability to demonstrate that you are caring, compassionate, motivated and capable of delivering an excellent level of care to elderly people in their own homes.
Complete our Application Form for your job role. It is important that this information is accurate so please complete this form properly. If you do not have any professional care experience we are always happy to hear about experiences you may have had with family or friends.
If your completed Application Form meets our recruitment criteria we will contact you to arrange a short telephone interview or online interview via Skype. This enables us to learn more about you and your background and, importantly, offers a chance for you to ask any questions you may have about working for our award-winning team.
You will next be invited to attend a face-to-face interview at our local office in Harrogate, Yorkshire or Wilmsow, Cheshire. You will meet with at least two members of our management team and have the chance to get a detailed insight into Carefound Home Care. We will request that you bring your proof of identity and any certificates of training to this interview.
If your interview is successful we will provide you with a formal job offer and carry out the necessary pre-employment checks which includes contacting your references (two professional and one personal) and carrying out an enhanced check with the Disclosure and Baring Service (DBS) – this is paid for by us.
All new members of our team complete a 5-day induction training course at their local office in Harrogate, Yorkshire or Wilmslow, Cheshire. This is delivered by our in-house training team covering everything from the basic health and social care qualification – The Care Certificate – to specialist areas such as medication management, moving & handling, dementia and Parkinson’s.
You will shadow members of our home care team in the community to enable you to put your learning into practice and demonstrate that you are competent to work alone. Following this, you will attend a safe to leave meeting with your Home Care Manager where all of your training assessments and evidence is reviewed and signed-off and you will be awarded your training certificates.
