NEDCare is a registered charity that puts the people we support at the heart of all we do. Our aim is to build a culture of excellence, continuous improvement and accountability to the communities we serve. Our person-centred approach to care considers the needs and preferences of each individual client.
The approach, attitude and values of candidates are the most important things to us when recruiting. We understand that if someone has good values and behaviours to begin with, then care skills can be learned and developed. We work hard to ensure that our Care team has great support and is enabled to excel in their vital role. For example, our Carers Support Fund helps with additional costs that Carers may face, such as damage to their vehicle caused by a pot hole.
We welcome applications from people who can demonstrate a caring attitude, with attention to detail, respect for individuals, patience and compassion. We offer comprehensive training and are keen to support anyone interested in progressing in their career into middle and senior management.

“I would certainly recommend working for NEDCare to anyone at all who needs a career in which they feel valued. I haven’t had many jobs that I have really enjoyed AND where I felt valued. The two combined makes for the best job satisfaction and that in turn promotes happy, fulfilled staff who always strive to do their very best because they really want to and they know that it will be appreciated.”
Marie, NEDCare Carer
When you join us, you’ll benefit from ongoing training and professional development to maintain your skills. If you want to turn care into a long-term profession, you’ll also find opportunities to progress your career.
As part of our commitment to quality, NEDCare insists on adequate visit lengths for Carers based on the needs of the client. Personal care visits will rarely take less than 45 minutes.
NEDCare pays travel time and costs between visits and is committed to ensuring the best possible terms and conditions for staff as the company continues to grow.
We are a flexible employer and can offer working hours to suit successful applicants. These include:
- Regular hours each day / week. (This can include anything from hour long visits to longer shifts throughout the day.)
- Bank and ad/hoc support staff.
- Respite care and sleeping/waking nights.
- Core staff, who are flexible and can commit to covering as required in case of sickness or holidays
- Pension contribution and paid holidays
Once you have completed your probation period, our pay rates start at £10.00 / hour, and are awarded depending upon experience and qualifications. Plus we pay travel time and downtime, travel costs, supplements for antisocial hours, and offer sick pay, holiday pay, pension and other benefits.
Providing a range of personal care support for individuals in their own homes can provide immense job satisfaction. Carers enjoy the privilege of building trusting relationships with older people needing support in their own homes. They enjoy the challenge of providing each client with a bespoke service that meets their needs, respects their preferences and promotes the independence of individuals with dignity and compassion.
This important role brings challenges as well as rewards. Carers need patience, compassion and an ability to listen well, so they can support clients to stay in touch with the things that really matter to them, even on difficult days.
