Rewards and Benefits of working for The Private Care Company
At the Private Care Company, we recognise the importance and value of all our staff. The health and wellbeing of our carers is hugely important to us and we offer various training, incentives and discounts to our employees as well as pay initiatives to reward them for all their hard work.
Read on to find out more about the rewards and benefits available when you became a carer at the Private Care Company.
Health & Wellbeing
The wellbeing of our Care Assistants and clients is our number one priority and we believe that the best carers are those that also take care of themselves. We offer working patterns that help to provide a great work-life balance, so that your time at work does not impact on your personal life.
Cycling to work is a great way of keeping fit and active, as well as being better for the environment. We offer two different cycle to work schemes that help staff to travel around the city for work. These include being able to hire bikes free of charge during working hours or help and discounts on buying your own bike.
Looking after vulnerable people and being responsible for their wellbeing and safety can be challenging and we understand this. All our managers are available for confidential discussions on any issue which is causing you concern and you can contact them directly to arrange a meeting.
We also provide our team and their family with access to a free counselling helpline with qualified counsellors. These conversations are entirely confidential and the service can be used at any time throughout your employment.
We provide a full induction training programme for all our new team members which is provided via e-learning, face-to-face learning and on the job shadowing. In addition to this, we hold regular supervisions and annual appraisals and offer annual refresher training to help you develop, grow and progress in your career.
Within the first 12 weeks of working with us, we will support you to complete The Care Certificate which is nationally recognised within the adult social care sector. We offer a £150 training incentive payment on successful completion of The Care Certificate.
We also offer fully funded Level 3 and Level 5 Health & Social Care Diplomas for anyone that wishes to progress to a more senior role and develop their career even further.
We believe that it is important to recognise our team for the outstanding contributions they make to our clients’ lives every day. We invite our colleagues and clients to tell us when they have seen someone demonstrating our company values and going above and beyond to provide exceptional care. These team members are then put forward to be our Carer of the Month and can win wellbeing vouchers to enable them to spend some time on self-care.
We also offer a Recommend a Friend incentive scheme where a £50 payment will be made to you if you successfully introduce a new team member.
We provide care and support to our clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 365 days a year. In recognition of this, we pay time and a half on Bank Holidays and double time on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
We offer a workplace pension scheme which includes both employee and employer contributions to help you save for your future.
As a member of our team you will be eligible to apply for a Blue Light Card which offers various discounts at a number of large national retailers, local businesses and independent online companies.
You can get discounts on holidays, cars, days out, fashion, gifts and much more.
The care assistants are very good – it’s so enjoyable getting out with them. Recently we went to the Marina where I took photos and had lunch. It was super!Mrs D, HoveThis is an outstanding and very well run organisation. Their choice of staff is excellent.Mrs D, HoveI wouldn’t have made the recovery I did from my broken back without The PCC – and I don’t think I could have done it with any other company. I really mean that.Mrs D, HoveAll of The PCC care assistants always respect my dignity and are unlike those from other companies. I would be very sad if I had to leave them.Mrs D, HoveThe PCC looks after us very well. They have found us great care assistants and we are completely happy with them.Mrs D, HoveThe PCC allows me to be safe and secure at night in my own home as I know they are there.Mrs D, Hove
