WORK WITH US

Why Work with FirstCol

Established since 2006 FirstCol Services Ltd has been providing specialist quality Homecare Services to its clients within the comfort of their own homes. FirstCol was founded around our passion to care for people and consequently recognise that exceptional skills in delivering care should be recognised and rewarded with excellent support, career prospects and rewarding pay.

At FirstCol we have the most amazing team of carers from various backgrounds with different hobbies and interests. They all have one thing in common – “a passion to care” for their clients. Below are some examples of carers with very different lifestyles for whom working at FirstCol is ideal.

Homecare Workers who have previously had a family member in our Care

  •  Sometimes after a loved one has passed away after being cared for by FirstCol people have joined our company as Homecare Support Workers to assist in giving the same quality of care to another client as they understand and empathise with what both the client and family requires.

Our more mature Homecare Support Workers

  • We have Homecare Support Workers who have families that have flown the nest and want to pick up a new career maybe after being out of the work place for some time. These carers use the excellent life skills that they have used to bring up their families to care for their customers. Many of these carers find a whole new lease of life though their new career.

Our carers who are not UK nationals

  • At FirstCol we support application from Homecare Support Workers who would like to come to the UK or who are working in the UK for the first time. We have carers from overseas who have extensive Homecare experience from their life back at home and want to use their skills whilst experiencing life here in the UK. Our International Homecare Support Workers find it is extremely rewarding learning about life hear as they help our clients to remain in the comfort and safety of their own homes.

Our hourly visiting carers who want flexibility

  • We have a number of hourly visiting carers who are able to juggle other priorities including young families. Homecare work allows them to fit in a rewarding career around other family commitments. It is through the diversity of our team that we are able to match them so well to the likes and interests of our customers.

FirstCol’s Commitment

  • FirstCol acknowledges the commitment our staff give to our service and our clients.
  • We offer contracted hours to our Homecare Support Workers giving them a feeling of stability and security.
  • We believe that by engaging our staff in this way we maintain a loyal and regular workforce that delivers care on the basis of our ethos of you Home, your Care, your Choice. This ensures our clients are able to experience a better quality of life in the comfort of their own home.

Recruitment, Quality and Compliance

  • All our staff who deliver the highest standard of Quality care are interviewed by us, vetted to high CQC standards and have DBS disclosure at enhanced level.
  • We also understand the importance of good training & discipline which is why as a FirstCol Homecare Support Worker you will undergo continuous professional development and training in-house to ensure that you are able to deliver the highest quality of service. This training includes Health & Safety, Manual Handling, Infection Control, Medication Management, Protection of Vulnerable Adults, First Aid & CPR, and general courtesy & ‘house-keeping’.
  • All our Homecare Support Workers are given the opportunity enrol on NVQ Level 2 in Care and encouraged to progress this to NVQ Level 3 upon completion.
