With recent news of business having to close their doors and lay off staff due to the recent COVID-19 Outbreak, we certainly feel for those affected. This is a time of uncertainty for a lot of businesses. We have many vulnerable adults in our society which still need their care packages and there are many more waiting in care homes and hospitals awaiting their move to home with care and support.
With the outbreak developing we find staff having to self-isolate or take time off due to childcare issues with schools being closed, our services are stretched and we don’t want this to have an impact on those we care for.
We therefore wish to extend the opportunity to all those that have faced immediate redundancy due to this outbreak. Have you been a worker in retail, hospitality or even cabin crew with an airline now grounded or dissolved? If so we believe you will have great interpersonal skills and a great work ethic that can be transferred to helping those in need of care at this time. We have full and part time positions available and have sourced extra admin support in our Head Office to help make the recruitment process as smooth and quick as possible. Peninsula Care are offering free police checks which usually would cost £33 to the individual, and all mandatory training will be completed before commencement of employment and paid shadow shifts with our Senior Care Assistant.
For those with no previous experience we are seeking Community Care Workers to provide care to people living in their own homes. Applicants must be able to drive and have access to a care for work purposes. We have an immediate demand in Newtownards, Comber, North Down and the Ards Peninsula.
Our community care team receive weekly pay and are paid at the rates shown below:
Monday -Friday £8.80 per hour
Weekends £9.20 per hour
Mileage paid at a rate of £0.20p per mile.
Have you worked previously in the care sector? Don’t feel “Out of Touch”! We also supply experienced staff to other care facilities such as care homes throughout Northern Ireland with temporary staff. We can provide you with updates in all mandatory training and we are pretty sure being a care worker is like riding a bike, you never forgot those skills.
We are offering immediate interviews, to apply please contact us on 02891828921 to request an application form, these can be posted or emailed to you.
