Growth for Mears care at home services in Surrey

With care at home services growing in demand in Surrey, Mears is expanding and looking to recruit more staff. Mears provides services on contract to Surrey County Council and supports people of all ages with a wide range of care needs. Services are also provided, on a private basis, to those who want to augment the care they receive through the council, or have other requirements for support.With the number of retired people in Surrey expected to increase, care at home services are more vital than ever before, and can help to support older people to live in their own homes rather than in long-term residential care.Beverley Stedman, Branch Manager for Mears in Surrey, said: “The increasing number of people requiring support means that demand for home care services is growing at an extraordinary rate, with more and more families realising that this is a viable and affordable alternative to residential care, or nursing homes.“This is exactly where we fit in. Our employees support people with some of the everyday tasks we all take for granted, such as bathing, shopping, domestic chores and cooking meals. But companionship is also important, as sometimes a care worker might be the only person one of our clients sees during the day.“We’re delighted to be expanding in Surrey, in order to meet growing demand for these services, and would be happy to hear from people who think they might have the right skills to work for us.”Mears offers flexible working patterns which employees can fit around their own availability, and as such, it is looking for a range of full-time, part-time and shift workers. Although previous experience is welcomed, it’s not necessary as Mears provides a full training programme in addition to ongoing support with the opportunity for career progression.Mears has job vacancies for staff to work in Surrey. Care workers range widely in age, from 18 to over 65, and come from all walks of life. Care and support is generally provided on a one-to-one basis, and those who work at Mears derive great job satisfaction which comes from a genuine interest in working with people. Most positions will require people who have a driver’s licence and access to a car.Contact usIf you are interested in working for Mears in Surrey pleaseClick here to view details and apply onlineCall Beverley Stedman on 020 8669 4477Email beverley.stedman@mearsgroup.co.uk
