Dedicated care staff offering a real alternative to a care home
Care and support when you need it in the comfort of your own home
As much or as little help as you need to continue living independently
In order to protect our clients and ensure we recruit the right calibre of staff a number of pre-employment checks are undertaken:
Interview: Face to face interviews normally last approximately an hour and normally take place at our office between 8.30am and 4.30pm.
Literacy and Numeracy: All applicants complete a basic numeracy and literacy test to ensure they have the necessary skills required for doing the work.
Psychometric Assessment: Candidates undertake a psychometric assessment to assess their suitability for carework and to gauge their honesty and integrity.
References: A minimum of two references are required which will normally be the current and previous employer (personal references are not normally acceptable). References received are verified with a phone call to the referee.
Right to Work in UK: Evidence of a right to work in the United Kingdom must be produced and may be verified through the UK Borders Agency employer checking service.
Criminal Records: The Health and Social Care Act 2008 requires all persons working with vulnerable people to undertake an Enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check and a DBS ISA First check.
Identity: Applicants are required to bring a number of original documents to their interview to verify their identity.
Training: Experienced care staff are required to produce valid certificates as proof of training attended. Where this is not possible, they must do the training by attending our in-house course.
Healthcare Questionnaire: Once the recruitment decision is made and before commencing work, staff complete a health questionnaire to check they are fit and able to safely carry out the tasks required by the job role.
