This is a self-employed role working as part of a team of Home Helps who help with the delivery of Age UK Horsham District's Help at Home service.
If you are understanding and empathetic, possess good communication skills, and are able to assist with shopping and light practical tasks to help an older person in their home we would like to hear from you.
Our Help at Home service is constantly growing, and we currently have around 45 self-employed Home Helps operating in the Horsham District. This extends North of the Horsham area and down to Steyning, Storrington, Pulborough and outlying villages. The service provides domestic help and support to older Horsham residents (over the age of 50) and operates weekdays between 9am to 4.30pm.
You let us know your regular availability and the distance you are willing to travel and we will try to match up clients accordingly. We do not provide any personal care.
Initially we ask that you send us a copy of your CV and a short paragraph about why you are interested in this role. We will review this and invite successful applicants in for a chat.
We cannot guarantee work, but usually most Home Helps have their schedules filled within 3 – 6 weeks depending on how many hours they wish to provide. There is also the opportunity to help with holiday cover if you have availability.
The current hourly rate is £9 or £11.20 per hour depending on the clients financial situation. Please remember that this is a self-employed role and therefore if you do not work for any reason, you will not be paid.
Please telephone us on 01403 260560 if you have any questions.
We look forward to hearing from you.
