Our care workers are at the heart of what Care Outlook does. Our carers come from all walks of life and experience but share one common goal – to make a real difference to people’s lives and empower those in need to lead independent and satisfying lives. This role offers the potential for an amazing and fulfilling experience. If you are dedicated and passionate about people and want a career you can be proud of; this could be the role for you.
Being a carer at Care Outlook gives immense job satisfaction. You will enjoy the special privilege of building unique trusting relationships with each of your clients in their own homes. Home means something different for each of us, it represents who we are and who we wish to be. Home holds our special memories and the carefully chosen objects we treasure. We recognise that everyone is different with unique needs and wishes so our carers offer a bespoke care plan, to enable them to continue to enjoy fulfilling lives in their own homes, for as long as possible while promoting their independence.
Although extremely rewarding the role of Carer can also be challenging. Our customers include people with a wide range of emotional and physical needs. You will need compassion, patience and an ability to listen well and interpret needs, so you can support service users to feel safe, secure and empowered. Stamina and physical strength are also essential in order to meet the physical and emotional demands of providing care. You could be supporting a young person with a brain injury, assisting an elderly person in and out of bed with manual or mechanical hoists or supporting a customer who is near the end of their life. The ability to keep calm in an emergency and think clearly is necessary to provide the best care for our customers.
We provide training, development and the practical supervision you need to do your job well. We also support learning to enable specialist expertise in your chosen area such as dementia or learning disabilities. This is an ideal opportunity to start your career in social care. As a representative of Care Outlook, you can be proud of being part of a strong supportive team with an ethos that reflects our family centred and extremely caring approach.
If you feel you have what it takes to join the Care Outlook family, please get in touch with us. You must be able to travel between customers’ homes, by providing your own transport and be available to work weekends and other unsociable hours.
