•Locations of placements – Hertfordshire / Buckinghamshire
•ACCOMMODATION IS OBVIOUSLY PROVIDED AS THIS IS A LIVE IN CARE JOB (CARING FOR 1 ELDERLY PERSON IN THEIR OWN HOME)
• 2 – 3 HOUR BREAK PER DAY
•WORK 4-8 WEEKS AT A TIME, FOLLOWED BY A 1-2 WEEK BREAK. (SHIFT PATTERNS CAN BE DISCUSSED WITH MANAGER, SOME PEOPLE PREFER TO WORK UP TO 8 WEEKS STRAIGHT FOLLOWED BY A BREAK)
•NOTE – THERE IS NO ACCOMMODATION PROVIDED DURING THE 1-2 WEEK BREAK (so candidates would either travel back to Poland or use their UK base)
•FOOD SOMETIMES PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE (DEPENDS ON CLIENT)
•GOOD LEVEL OF ENGLISH COMMUNICATION IS ESSENTIAL / GOOD COOKING SKILLS ALSO REQUIRED !!
•IMPORTANT: As there is no accommodation provided during the 1-2 week breaks, then candidates with some type of UK base would also be more suitable, although this is not essential (it just works out easier) ; Candidates could also fly back to Poland during their breaks but this would be at their own expense!
•Employees need to be flexible with regards to location of work (as this will obviously change based on the requirements of the company). Quite often employees will end up caring for the same client for a long period (if desirable from both sides)
