Why work for Eldercare?
Eldercare is a privately-run company, supporting individuals to live safely and independently in their own homes. From our emergency response centre in Rossendale, Lancashire, we support thousands of families across the UK and take over a million calls a year.
Our staff come from a wide range of backgrounds and have varying levels of experience, and whilst we do not look for any specific external qualifications, we require people who are naturally empathic with the vulnerable clients that we support.
We aim to deliver the best, safe and reliable service in line with our values: we care, always there, being the best and pulling together.
Whilst our emergency response centre (Rossendale) and head office (Rawtenstall) functions are based in Lancashire, we also have field-based employees serving communities across the UK in a variety of operational and business development positions. From control centre operators, emergency responders, domiciliary carers, engineers to business development executives, there are a variety of roles with Eldercare that may be suitable for you.
As our services run 24/7, we can offer positions that operate outside normal office hours on a variety of full-time and part-time shift patterns. These roles are popular with people looking for greater flexibility with work hours to fit with their home life.
Eldercare is looking to recruit Emergency Mobile Responders, based in North Oxfordshire. The position is based as part of a team responding to emergency calls to vulnerable clients living in both sheltered housing schemes and their own homes. Some provision of emergency personal care will be expected. Full training, induction and on-going support will be provided. Medical experience is not required, but some practical experience in the care sector is preferred.
