Journey to Become an Hourly Carer With the Good Care Group

Your journey to become an hourly carer with The Good Care Group

We know that joining a new team can be nerve wracking, that’s why we wanted to share what you can expect when starting your career with The Good Care Group as an hourly carer. We’re here to help you every step of the way, and that’s why we believe there’s nowhere better to work. 

Throughout your application process, you will have a dedicated recruiter on hand to interview you, help you understand the role and the application process. You’ll be welcomed by our training team and other carers starting their exciting journey with us. Throughout your training week, you’ll be equipped with everything you need to excel in your role. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask any questions on anything you’re unsure about.

Lynda, a member of our hourly care team shared “If you’re considering becoming an hourly carer, The Good Care Group is an incredible choice. You’ll embark on a rewarding journey, positively impacting lives while gaining valuable skills and experience. Flexible schedules allow you to balance work and life and the company’s commitment to your growth makes it worth exploring further”.

Once your training and compliance checks are complete, you’ll be invited to a meeting with our head office staff, either Jess or Kaycee. This is an opportunity to get to know you more. Within your first week, you will be scheduled to complete your care certificate, where you are given 10 paid hours to complete this. 

We will look at suitable clients and schedule some shadowing shifts for you to complete with one of our hourly carer ‘buddies’.  You’ll have regular contact with your buddy and they’ll support you in your first few weeks of work. Once a permanent placement has been arranged, you’ll find that your first visit of the day will be within an hour of your home address, closer if possible. We aim to avoid too much travel time for anyone, but at times this is unavoidable, however don’t forget you are paid for your travel time and your travel costs. We know how important support is, so we’ll keep in close contact with you by telephone, email or text if you prefer. We’ll have virtual and in person meetings  where we share experiences, ideas and grow together as a team. We care about and look after our carers.

We truly are a team that any carer would love to be a part of. If this journey sounds appealing to you and you’d like to know more, simply call our recruitment team on 0203 728 7570, or you can get started with your application here
