At Helping Hands, we genuinely believe that supporting others is one of the most amazing things you can do. We take the time to learn the lifestyle and routine of our customers in order to provide the best possible companionship for them.
The customers our Support Workers visit every day have a wide range of needs and personalities. We’re looking for people who are empathetic, understanding and compassionate, to provide the award-winning care we pride ourselves on to enrich customer lives every day.
It might be that you already have experience of looking after a family member or friend, have done a similar job in the past or that you simply have a passion for helping others. Either way, our 30 years of experience as a leading care provider has shown us that previous experience simply isn’t necessary to make a difference to someone’s life. We’ll give you all the tools and training you require to excel at what you do.
