Home Instead, a company that provides at-home care, is looking for new caregivers to meet an increase in demand due to the pandemic.

Owner Vicki Waring said: “It’s devastating seeing some successful businesses in the area suffer due to the virus. Across Retford and Gainsborough, and the entire county, there are people whose future employment is uncertain.

“But we’re on the lookout for 50 enthusiastic and kind people to join our team of fantastic caregivers.”

Vicky Waring, owner of Home Instead.

She added: “Whether you have faced redundancy, want to try something new, or already performing a caring role, we’d love you to consider working for Home Instead.

“We will offer you the training you need and immerse you in the company’s values that ensure that the care we deliver is outstanding.”

Home Instead provides services from companionship through to personal care and specialised dementia care.

The company employs caregivers who come from a range of sectors. A warm heart and desire to make a difference is prized over previous experience in the industry.

In a recent survey commissioned by the company to gauge employee and client satisfaction, it received glowing praise for its work over the past year.

Caregivers are typically matched to clients based on mutual interests and hobbies to help build bonds provide personalised support.

Vicki said: “If you enjoy helping others, get enjoyment from making people smile or just feel like you would like to give something back, then this could be the job for you.

“Whether you are looking for a few hours to fill a gap in your own life or looking for a whole new career, working for us is all about being part of something wonderful – a big family, a true team.”

Caregiving roles involve some evening and weekend work, and applicants must have a driving licence and their own vehicle.
