What we can offer you

It makes sense that our service users can only receive our award winning service if our staff are equally valued too. With that in mind we offer excellent career progression opportunities. structured training and development and a competitive pay. And of course, a friendly, team-focused ethos is a given.

  • We offer work which is paid on an hourly basis for our Cleaning and Home Help Assistants and we pay our Home Carers according to the shift worked.

  • We have introduced an auto-enrolment pension scheme in accordance with recent Government legislation.

  • We provide uniform, ID badges, all Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) free of charge and also absorb the cost of any PVG or Disclosure costs that occur.

  • We provide flexible working whereby, with adequate notice, you can change your availability according to changes in your own circumstances.

  • Training is a key part of what we provide – all home carers must complete our induction course and are then given annual refresher training where appropriate. In addition we will encourage all staff to train for a professionally recognised qualification (such as an SVQ Level 2 or 3 in Health and Social Care).

  • We pay our staff during training (which many other companies do not do). Our managers will keep a close eye on you and give you plenty on-the-job training as required. Regular quality audits, quarterly supervisions and annual appraisals are all keys ways in which we can ensure that your career is progressing in the right direction.

  • Referral bonus – we offer £50 to any staff member who introduces a new staff member to the company plus another £50 if the new staff member stays with us 6 months or more.

  • We pay on a monthly basis with payments directly into your Bank account. Holiday pay is calculated according to your monthly earnings and is separately disclosed on your payslip so that you know exactly how much is owed to you from one month to the next.

Remote working can be intimidating for some – especially when starting care for the first time – so we will remain in close contact with you in your early weeks; a more experienced carer will shadow your calls until you and we are confident you are ready to make calls on your own. We also have a very in-depth Staff Support Policy in place and will offer support to our staff not only in regards to their employment but also any other issues that may be affecting them.  Whilst out in the community our on call manager will be contactable during all times of your visits.

Blue Star St Andrews is an equal opportunities employer. As such we will ensure that no job applicant or employee is given less favourable treatment on the grounds of age, sex, disability, nationality, race or ethnic origin, sexuality, marital or civil partnership or status, or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements that are not essential to carrying out the job.
