Such a rewarding job. Everyone working at Unique always works together to do the best they can for our clients.

Everyone is incredibly helpful and attentive. And if you ever have a question of difficult situation, there are always team members immediately available to offer advice and guidance.

Of course, as with any role in care, there are difficult situations but everyone is offered support, and if it is helpful, additionally training can be provided by the office. You do have to have a good work ethic and commit to your work. But you are also able to create are working week which suits you, stating the days and times that you would like to be down as ‘available’ to work.

Unique work hard to ensure you have a regular working pattern and by regularly seeing the same clients can establish good relationships and routines. Understandably, this isn’t always possible with unexpected sickness of colleagues for example, but you can then enjoy the variety and meeting new clients in other areas.

I would thoroughly recommend unique as a fantastic Homecare company. They always try to go the extra mile, whether that is with client care, supporting employees or recognising achievements. If you’re caring and want to make a difference too, get in contact!
