Company Description

Transform your spare time into moments of meaning and discover work-life balance that truly fulfils you at Home Instead South Lakes. Plus, earn a good salary with rates up to £17 per hour!

Picture this: in as little as 9 hours a week, you could be making a world of difference to people in our community

Maybe you'll start your day with a visit to a client who needs a bit of help getting up, ready, and sorted with their medications. It’s a simple act that sets their day off on the right foot and brings huge reassurance to their family.

Or as the day winds down, imagine popping in to help another client whip up a warm meal, tackle a bit of ironing before making some of her favourite peppermint tea at bedtime. These tasks might seem small, but to them, it’s a huge help, making it possible for our clients to live independently in the home they love.

For us, it’s not about having a CV packed with care experience; it's about the kind of person you are. The kindness you show without even thinking about it and the wealth of life skills you’ve nurtured over the years.

Ready to Make a Big Impact in Just a Few Hours?

  • Competitive Pay: Earn up to £17/hr, with double pay on bank holidays. PLUS paid travel at £13.50 and paid mileage! PLUS our visits are a minimum of one hour!
  • Fits Into your Life: Work mornings or evenings, starting from just 9 hours a week—perfect for a better work-life balance. Have more time to give? The more you care, the more you'll earn.
  • Meaningful Work: Support independence and bring joy to the lives of adults in our South Lakes community.
  • For Everyone: Whether you’re semi-retired, seeking a new part-time role, or just looking to make a difference, we value your life experience over professional experience.
  • Be Part of Our Family: Where you're not just working but belonging. With regular meet-ups, strong support from our office, and comprehensive training, we ensure everyone feels involved and valued.

“I worked as a teaching assistant for over 20 years. I loved the work but knew that I needed a change for the last 10 years of my career. I now work with such kind and considerate people, and each day the clients make me smile. I love this role and would definitely recommend enquiring if you are interested in a rewarding career!" Kath, Care Professional
