Home care service looks to recruit for 100 roles in Scotland

A newly-launched home health service is calling on social care professionals to apply for one of the 100 live-in care roles on offer across Scotland.

The team behind Kairos Home Health, which launched in April 2019, has officially begun its search for live-in carers to join the new service, which provides adults with health and social care needs a carer who lives alongside them in their own home.

Applicants must go through an online application, followed by a telephone interview, then an in-depth face-to-face interview. Those who successfully get through these initial stages will then be invited to a comprehensive five-day training induction, where they will be continually assessed by the Kairos team. Only those who pass the intensive training programme will go on to join the team.

Kairos carers will operate on a three weeks on/one week off basis, and the role involves supporting clients with activities such as medication administration, personal care, cooking, shopping and household tasks.

During the ‘off’ week, another Kairos carer will go to the client’s home, meaning a client will normally be assigned two carers at a time, promoting excellent continuity of care.

Applicants must have at least six months’ experience in social care work. Further in-depth training in medication management, adult protection and safeguarding, policies and procedure will be provided to successful candidates.
