Angel Carers (UK) Ltd recruits and retains care workers from the UK and overseas. Our care workers reflect the diversity of the UK and our local community. We consider ourselves fortunate in that our original staff members are still with us. We view our care workers as the ambassadors of our service. It is therefore important that we have a robust recruitment and selection system which stands up to scrutiny. In addition to this, we recognise that your care worker is someone you may form a bond with. For this reason, we take extra care in our selection process to ensure our care workers show signs of kindness and integrity.
Our care workers come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds and are of varying experience and expertise. Staff qualifications range from fully qualified nursing staff, moving and handling instructors, care workers with NVQ / Diplomas 2 / 3 in Health and Social Care to relatively new workers to the sector.
Good training and development is an essential part of a care workers role. All new care workers will attend a rigorous induction programme in accordance with ‘Skills for Care’ Induction Standards 1 – 6 and Diploma registration. Training then forms part of an ongoing process where we continually identify training needs, give support and ensure all staff meet expected goals.
We promote all aspects of ‘careers in care’ for all our staff. We take an active role in researching and presenting each individual with all the possibilities of what they may achieve. We are proud to say that we have active ‘dignity champions’.
We view our care workers as an important part of the team and help and support them not just in their professional lives but their personal lives. We believe that family life and enjoying what you do is important in order to do your job well.
All our Live in care workers work on a self-employed basis and are available to Angel Carers (UK) Ltd on an as and when required basis, this forms part of their contract.
Domiciliary care workers are employed on a P.A.Y.E. basis.
