Flexible Hours & Shifts
 
Working hours that suit my lifestyle. That’s when it hits home.
 
At Home Group it’s critical we continue to deliver services for our customers during the COVID-19 outbreak, and our awesome colleagues are at the very heart of making that happen. We need Brilliant People like you to join us (and not just during this challenging time). We are doing things a little differently at the moment, so to keep you, our customers and ourselves safe we’ll engage with you digitally where possible.
 
Have you been looking to earn some extra cash, while keeping to your current commitments? Now you can! What’s more, you’ll be making a difference!

This is an exciting time to join Home Group – one of the UK’s Largest Housing providers and be part of our brilliant flexible bank. You’ll be supporting our amazing customers, while picking and choosing the shifts you want to work.
 
Where you could work
You’ll be helping our vulnerable customers in Exeter, although if you’re interested you could branch out to Torquay and Plymouth too – the choice is yours! In Devon we have our Mental Health Community Recovery Service as well as our Ex-Offenders service, so just let us know which you’d prefer to work in.
 
Our Mental Health Service supports the recovery of our customers to help them gain independence within the community and to build on their support networks and skills to live fulfilling lives. Our CQC registered service supports customers in their own living environments, to learn and develop life skills, manage their own risks and outcomes and aiming to move on to more independent living. Our Ex-offenders’ Services supports those leaving prison and help them get back on their feet by finding employment, housing and assisting with bill's and rent payment etc.
 
There is lots for you to do and get involved in, from supporting our customers to achieve their hopes and aspirations, working to bespoke care plans. You’ll go home each day knowing that you’ve made an amazing difference to vulnerable people’s lives. How amazing is that! One day you might be helping our customers manage their finance or household tasks, the next you might be off to the seaside for fish and chips! Rest assured that wherever you work, we will support you all the way. It’s a great role to build up experience, as a steppingstone in your career, or just as a meaningful casual role!
 
About you
You thrive both on working with a range of vulnerable customers, who all have different support needs, as well as working with colleagues across different services.  You’ll be flexible to work at short notice, as you’ll be the one picking your next shift. The great news is that you’ll be gaining loads of experience working in different services or locations. But we do need to be a real people person! Though you’ll have the heart of a Lion, you’ll sometimes need the skin of a Rhino, however they don’t take away from the caring nature you display towards our customers.
 
You may already work with vulnerable adults or have done so in the past, however it’s not a deal-breaker if you haven’t. However to be brilliant, we do need you to have a caring attitude and the desire to learn and make a difference!
 
How it works
Working on our bank, you’ll be able to pick and choose your shifts - from those available in your area. As busy as you are, you should be able to do this on the go via your mobile device!
 
What’s in it for you?
At Home Group our pay rates are based on Living Wage Foundation rate (definitely more than some organisations!) That means you’ll be paid a fair hourly rate for every hour that you work and your rate even includes a payment towards your holiday pay!

After you have been paid for your first shift, you’ll even get a chance to stretch your money further when you get access to our brilliant shopping discount scheme! You’ll even get access to our excellent learning portal to develop your skills further! I’m sure you will find working for us brilliant, so if you want to stick around, you will also be able to apply to all of our roles!
