Flexibility in the workplace in the care sector

Flexibility in the workplace

9 to 5 really doesn’t suit everyone. Many of us require more flexibility than a traditional office job allows. Many employers still (despite the pandemic!) haven’t embraced flexible working practices and remain wedded to their traditional structure. Many of us struggle with this, our lives are too full and too complex to work with organisations that offer little leeway to their employees. For many of us, traditional working environments simply don’t work. The care industry provides a solution. The care industry is a dynamic, flexible industry where you can work around your life, rather than fitting your life around your work.

We are all gloriously different. Some of us are naturally early risers and would rather jump out of bed and get on with our days. Some of us would rather work late than be forced to wake to an ear-piercing alarm. Some people love working at night. Some of us only want to work for a certain number of hours in a week. Some of us need shifts that fit around our partner’s work for childcare reasons. Whatever your reason is and whatever you need, come and speak to us.

At Ashwell Home Care Services, we offer a range of different contract options. Whether you want a few shifts a week to pay for some treats for your family or to work weekends when you have childcare cover, we can help. Care is always needed; care doesn’t clock off at 5 pm on a Friday. We understand the complexities of our employees’ lives, which is why we offer flexible shift patterns to fit around your world.

All we ask in return is that you are kind, caring, and compassionate. We don’t mind if you have never worked in care before. We offer comprehensive, paid training before you start working. We make sure that you are ready before you venture out to see clients on your first solo shift. We have a supportive senior team who check in with you throughout the day. We offer ongoing training, with the opportunity to progress for those who wish to continue their training in Health and Social Care.

If you are looking for flexible work around the Malvern and Worcester area, speak to us. If you would like to work for a company that understands that you have a life outside of work, speak to us. If you would like to work for a supportive and understanding employer, speak to us. Due to the nature of the rural location of our clients, all employees must have a full driving licence and access to a car. If you are bored of the grind of 9 to 5, why not speak to us? Contact Ashwell Home Care Services today and take the first step towards your flexible career. Call now on 01684 778750.
