It has never been a better time to be a private, self-employed carer

Carers are some of the most invaluable people in society. You have to cope with very difficult, demanding and emotional situations caring for the ever-increasing elderly population. Nobody could have anticipated the effect and consequences of Covid but now a new crisis as carers are leaving the profession.

We completely understand why and empathise with you. We implore you to return to the profession after Christmas. We are using our best endeavours to offer the best possible wage and schedule so that you are not as overwhelmed as you have been during this pandemic. The more of you who return the easy it will be for everyone.

You can work the hours you want, when you want and give yourself a better work/life balance which as we all know is greatly needed. Caring will always be a hard vocation but I know that there are so many dedicated and experienced carers out there that still want to make a difference and it would be a shame to waste your wonderful skills and knowledge.


Mandatory Requirements

Whilst carers MUST have up to date training and provide the relevant certificates, if you have at least 1 years experience and can provide good references, we can guide you through your training so that you are up to date with all the CQC regulations.

The following categories are mandatory:

  • Care Certificate
  • Moving and Handling
  • Infection Control
  • Food Hygiene
  • First Aid
  • Safeguarding

All applicants must have insurance and a recent DBS certificate, or be on the update system. New DBSs are done through our ‘Umbrella Body’ and insurance can be arranged through the Agency’s online system along with additional training.

Policies

We expect our carers to maintain the dignity, respect, lifestyle and confidentiality of the client at all times, with particular regard to assisting with:

  • Dressing and undressing
  • Bathing, washing, shaving and oral hygiene
  • Toilet and continence requirements
  • Medication requirements and other health-related issues
  • Manual handling
  • Hygiene and awareness of infection control
  • Eating and mealtimes
  • Handling personal possessions and documents
  • Entering the home, room, bathroom or toilet

Wages

  • £14.50 per hour weekdays, £17 per hour weekends
  • Flexible working hours (10 – 30+ weekly)
  • Approximately £1,500+ per month
  • 45p per mile travel allowance

Bookings start at 1 hour and can include multiple visits to each (Morning, Lunch, Tea). Allocated bookings are provided around your personal schedule ensuring your availability to attend to your clients. Each carer will have several regular clients that they will visit each week. Ideally, we would like applicants to commit at least one weekend a month to their clients, however we at the Agency are more than flexible when personal circumstances prevent this. Our Carers work together using our detailed diary system to ensure the best possible and most efficient care and companionship is offered to our clients.

When joining our family of carers you can rest assured that our expert administrative team is always on hand to help wherever needed, in order to support you in your career as a Bunbury Carer.

Benefits of being a self-employed carer

Did you know that if you are self-employed, your costs can be deducted from your income?

You could claim up to £10,000 worth of expenses, such as:

  • phones, laptops, iPads & broadband
  • training, police checks & insurance
  • PPE & clothing
