Homecare Division

Our Homecare division prides itself on being a quality homecare provider that coordinates and delivers domiciliary care, specialist care and complex care services to the elderly, children, and those with special needs within their homes.

Governed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), our teams work with service users, their loved ones, local authorities, social services and case managers to create customised homecare packages that promote independence, wellbeing and quality of life. Our care workers and specialist support workers are part of our in-house teams to ensure high-quality care is provided.

Typical roles within this division

There are many different opportunities within our Homecare division that include:

Care Coordinators

As a Care Coordinator you will be accountable for the deployment and management of all Care Workers, which would include fulfilling care packages, keeping time and absences of Care Workers, and system administration.

Care Workers

As a Care Worker you will help individuals to live independently in their own homes by completing support records, medication charts, accident forms and body maps at every visit. You would also report any concerns, and protect the rights and promote interests of our customers.

Field Care Supervisors

As a Field Care Supervisor, you will continuously monitor and supervise the quality of care within a defined geographical area or service line by supervising Care Worker shifts, doing spot checks with Care Workers, and supporting Care Workers’ personal and professional development.


As a Trainer you will help develop and deliver training to all Care Workers. You will also work with staff across our branches to deliver refresher training and specific ongoing training requirements in line with identified development areas.

Working in our Homecare division

On a daily basis, our teams coordinate visitations into people’s homes to provide personal care to individuals, so that they can continue to live in their homes independently without having to go into bed-based care or a hospital setting.

Where you could work

We have CQC registered branches and services in seven locations – Bradford, Bristol, Leeds, Leicester, London and Manchester. Across our branches we have around 90 staff who plan and coordinate our services, and around 750 Care Workers out in the communities we serve. Around 28,000 home visits are coordinated each week, with visits ranging from 15 minutes up to 10 hours each.

What our work environment is like

The pace of the work within this division is very quick and fast-paced due to the ageing population of the UK and very large demand of people needing specialist care. No two days are this same and can seem quite demanding at times, but our teams collaborate and support each other when challenges arise.

Our branch staff have the flexibility to work from home if they’d like, however this division generally prefers to work from our offices to provide extra support to our Care Workers that are out in communities. Homecare services are provided 24/7 every day of the year, so our staff would typically work shifts. During the day, staff would typically work 6am to 3pm, or 10am to 6pm, and would then hand over to our Out of Hours team who would work at night and over weekends. Each of our branches would coordinate and manage their shifts independently.

Career advancement opportunities 

We place a great focus on performance & development (P&D) to help our staff progress through their chosen career paths. Development can be approached through a multitude of angles from on-the-job training and e-learning materials to formal training workshops.

Career Pathways

In our Homecare division, there are two main (but flexible) career pathways that our staff generally follow:

  1.
