The past 18 months have made us all reconsider what we want in our lives. From cherishing more time with loved ones to adapting to where and how you work. For many, it’s made them look at their career path and if it’s time for a change. If that’s you and you’d love to take your people skills to the next level in care, read on to find out why Helping Hands Exmouth could be the right fit for you.
As a small independent home and domiciliary care provider, we work hard to look after our clients in the community and ensure that they aren’t just supported, but that they are listened to and don’t have that feeling of being alone.
Our clients are looking for a helping pair of hands in their daily lives and a friendly smile and the best carers love what they do and use their people skills to make a difference. It’s not just a job to them it’s a vocation and a joy to help.
If you love working with people and are thinking about starting a career in care here’s why you should join this fantastic industry.
- Meet new people
- Pursue your passion to care for others
- Enjoy a rewarding and fulfilling career
- See the results of your hard work
- Receive training opportunities and a range of perks
- Make a positive difference to someone’s life
- No two days are the same

A typical life of a carer is working within a close team of likeminded people and a team leader for guidance and support.
Responsibilities can include helping with day to day living tasks to ensure the clients are safe, happy and as comfortable as possible, helping with meals where necessary, as well as helping with personal hygiene and toileting. For many clients, having someone accompany them to appointments, shopping and days out is the highlight of the day.
A driving licence and car is definitely preferred as you’ll be out and about in community but not having a car isn’t an issue, as we have cars available for use.
You’ll be out and about in the community fully supported and when you start, accompanied by a more experienced carer.
If this all sounds good to you, the key skills you’ll need transferring in from an other industry would be:
- Empathy and compassion
- Great communication skills
- Positive attitude
- Be observant
- Team worker
- Calm under pressure
- Willingness to learn
