Do you have a passion for caring and making a difference to people’s lives? If so we are looking for dedicated and conscientious individuals to join our care at home teams across East Renfrewshire.

You'll become a professionally registered practitioner who'll provide a lifeline to vulnerable residents in East Renfrewshire. The roles are demanding but hugely rewarding, supporting adults and older people facing a range of challenges (including dementia, physical disability and ill health) with daily living activities, to enable them to live safely and independently within their own home.

Our trained home carers deliver a vital service, which enhances the quality of service users' lives, including administering medication, supporting with personal care tasks and using specialist equipment.

If you're a compassionate individual who has what it takes to make a difference to people's lives and support them to remain independent at home in their own community, then start your career in home care today.

No previous experience or qualifications are necessary. All training will be provided by our in-house training team to give you the skills and confidence to enable you to succeed.

If you're not able to commit to a regular work pattern, then please still get in touch, as we can discuss how you could potentially join our bank of staff, who cover absence within the service when the need arises.

The hourly rate starts at £12.88. Enhancements of 15% are paid for weekend and evening working. Working with us, you'll also receive generous annual leave entitlement, access to the local government pension scheme and a range of attractive benefits
