What makes a great carer?
Being a great carer is less about having specific experience or qualifications, and more about having the right attitudes and values. We look for people who have a genuine concern for the health and wellbeing of others.
We want to know that you’re responsible, considerate, compassionate, and sensitive to the needs of others. Most of all, we want to know that you’re committed to fostering trust, building relationships, and providing exceptional care.
What’s it like working in care?
Working in care is anything but boring. Unlike a regular 9-5 job, no two days are alike, which means you’ll have to be good at adapting to changing demands and thinking on your feet.
Keep your problem-solving hat handy because you’ll need it! Each day provides new challenges and opportunities to learn and grow. While working with people requires no shortage of energy and patience, you get to go home every night knowing that your work is meaningful and impactful.
The benefits of working in care
While working in care can be demanding, it’s also a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Here are some of the top benefits of being a carer:
Flexible working hours:
When you work as a carer, you get to enjoy flexible working hours. This means you can choose to work shorter hours, overnight, or during the day depending on your lifestyle. It’s a great choice for those balancing family responsibilities or study commitments.
As part of our team, you’ll have the ongoing support from the care community. This will give you the opportunity to network with a wider care circle who share your values and goals, including doctors, nurses, and social workers. As we work together to support the people we care for, you’ll feel valued, appreciated, and part of something truly special.
Training and career advancement opportunities:
Working in care is an excellent opportunity to expand your care toolbox, learn new skills, and broaden your understanding of health care issues. For example, you may want to specialise in complex care issues such as dementia or end of life care. Working as a carer is also a great way to advance your career in the care community.
Working with people:
Every person you work with has their own unique personality and life story. There’s so much wisdom to be gained from working with people from different generations. As you form connections and build relationships, don’t be surprised if you end up learning more about yourself too.
