Could you be an Angel?
At Visiting Angels we want genuine, caring and dedicated people who wish to make a real difference to our adult clients lives. Providing companionship along side personal care, and help with medication and nutrition, you will have the opportunity to make a real difference every moment of your working day.
We ideally want previous care experience, but our thorough training and coaching program through the Angels Academy, means that we can focus on recruiting people with the right qualities and values, rather than just focussing on education and experience to date.
What is carer centricity?
Our carers are placed at the centre of everything we do. Starting with a rigorous recruitment process, which helps us to understand the people we employ better.
By providing the best pay rates in the industry, and permanent contracts following a successful probationary period, we make attractive offers of employment. Also, we provide ongoing reward and recognition as well as career development opportunities.
Setting you up for success is at the heart of our operation. We provide minimum one hour calls, so that the care you provide is of high quality and not rushed. We match your hobbies and interests to those of the client, and provide extra training as the individual client circumstances and health issues require.
This then ensures that you remain committed to being an Angel, confident and highly capable of placing your clients interests at the centre of everything you do.
We know that as a Caregiving Angel, you are a wonderful, loving, and professional person that does amazing work every day, so why not come and join our “Band of Angels”.
What does the recruitment process involve?
2 interviews, 4 references, a personality profile and a DBS check
Therefore we only recruit highly skilled, talented caregivers based on their values and beliefs as well as their life experience. So in addition to validating your knowledge and experience, we also complete personality profiling to understand a little more about your character. We know that you want to be that special person, you want to be a Visiting Angel.
In addition, we take 4 references and all of our caregivers have to complete written tests, and provide evidence of qualifications before being security screened, and then completing full induction training with us.
