Are you looking for a role that is rewarding and provides a sense of satisfaction? Are you looking for a unique and varied role? If the answer to these questions is 'yes', then a role in care could be for you!

We are recruiting for Home Care Workers to join our growing team. Established in 1986, Dale Care is one of the leading home care providers in County Durham and Gateshead and Newcastle helping our service users to stay as independent as possible within the comfort of their own home.

Roles and Responsibilities

Our Home Care Workers have the chance to make a real difference to people’s lives, both at home and supporting them in the community. This is a role that varies from day-to-day helping the more vulnerable in our society, offering a sense of satisfaction that is difficult to match.

Essential Requirements

  • Self-motivated and well-organised and flexible
  • Caring and sensitive to the needs of others
  • The ability to use your own initiative
  • Ability to communicate effectively
  • Dale Care Workers are responsible for meeting the support requirements of our customers, in a way that respects the individual and promotes their independence.
  • Our carers help to assist our service users with daily tasks as agreed between the customer and Dale Care.
  • The type of support that you can expect to be providing is no different from what would reasonably be given by a member of the person’s family. For instance, you may be providing personal care and support or domestic support

  • Inhouse training (paid) prior to starting work**
  • Shadowing (paid) with an experienced staff member**
  • Regular refresher training to ensure your upkeep of skills and knowledge, on-going continuing personal development
