Care work can be a highly rewarding and varied occupation – especially if you enjoy helping other people. It can be suited to part or full-time hours, and is highly flexible.
We aim to run a 'staff-led' agency which puts you first – since we believe staff being happy in their work results directly in a better quality of care for our service users.
We believe that Carers are generally underpaid in the UK & that this has a negative impact on service users. It is therefore our policy to pay our staff the Living Wage Foundation Living Wage – currently set at £8.45 – which we believe will result in a better service for our clients.
Previous experience is often preferred, but is not necessary provided you can demonstrate an aptitude and a suitable attitude for care work.
We can provide and often arrange funding for all training up to the Level 4 Diploma in Health & Social Care, allowing you to progress onto management and degree-level qualifications.
Nouveau Care values and encourages diversity among its staff - we recognise that many people employed in the UK care industry are foreign nationals and we pledge to go the extra mile to prevent discrimination.
This extends to gender, sexual preference and any other conceivable grounds for discrimination – though the client is always entitled to reasonable discretion over who provides their care.
Once you have passed our application process, you will be expected to complete Mandatory Training, then the Care Certificate.
The Care Certificate was developed jointly by Skills for Care, Health Education England and Skills for Health, and was introduced in 2015.
It is designed as an induction for those new to care to ensure that they have the appropriate skills, knowledge and behaviours to provide compassionate, safe and high quality care and support.
This must be completed within 12 weeks of starting, but can often be completed sooner.
It consists of a series of short courses which represent standards which should be adhered to when new recruits begin work.
Nouveau Care has established links with a local training providers, and training is provided by a combination of in-house learning and short courses provided by others.
All training is counted towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as a Carer, and the Care Certificate forms part of the Level 2 Health & Social Care qualification.
Again, funding will be provided for all learning undertaken towards this, or for specialist courses such as End of Life or Palliative Care.
Nouveau Care always welcomes applications from experienced carers and people seeking a career change alike.
