Wiltshire Support at Home - Your home, Our Support, Your Independence

If you are passionate about making a real difference to people's lives and looking to start your career in the care industry, this is the perfect opportunity for you. We believe in nurturing talent from within, offering extensive training, progression and diploma opportunities available.

Wiltshire Support at Home offers short-term service for hospital discharges and individuals needing support at home, as part of a rapid response. Their crucial role includes preventing, reducing, and delaying the necessity for long-term care. The service aids those recently discharged from the hospital or under the care of the Rapid Response Service, providing short to mid-term homecare support to promote independence.

We are seeking individuals with a genuine passion for helping others who are available on a rota basis between 7am to 10pm 365 days a year. Showcase your caring and friendly attitude. Embrace teamwork while thriving independently and be part of our vision to work with people in the community to live the best life they can!

Successful applicants will receive a welcome payment of £1300 (subject to tax and NI) for your integral role in reducing flow pressure on hospitals. You will receive £650 upon starting and a further £650 upon successful completion of your probation.
