The difference you can make as a Liberty carer

Are you considering working in care? If you have a genuine concern for the wellbeing of others and a naturally empathic disposition, working in care may be just the right path for you. In this post, we explore the many opportunities care jobs in Christchurch create to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Read on!

What’s it like working in care? 

Working in care can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience that will challenge you every day. Unlike a typical 9-5 job, no two days are alike. That means you’ll have to be good at adapting to changing demands, thinking on your feet and problem-solving. It will certainly require no shortage of patience, energy and a willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. But at the end of the day, you get to go home knowing that your actions made a positive difference in someone’s life. 

The benefits of working in care 

If you enjoy working with and caring for others, the care industry is the perfect opportunity to pursue your passion. When you work as a carer, you’ll be introduced to a large group of healthcare professionals and other carers. This is a fantastic way to start your care career and become an active member of the care community.

Because working in care offers flexible hours, it’s an ideal job for those who have family commitments, study opportunities or other responsibilities. Plus, with ongoing training, regular team meetings, and consistent support from a close-knit team, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to build your care toolbox,  pursue specialist training so that you’re qualified to help people with more complex needs, and ultimately progress your career in the care sector. 

Am I qualified to work in care? 

Our carers are trained to bridge the gap between traditional care and nursing, which means ongoing training and supervision. We’re always on the lookout for experienced carers who have completed their NVQ qualifications to join our team. 

Our carers must also provide references and an enhanced DBS check. Lastly, we look for carers who have prior training, knowledge, and experience so that they can pass induction training with our registered nurse. Provided you have these initial skills, we will support your career by providing opportunities to grow your skillset so that you can work with more vulnerable people with complex needs and make an even bigger difference. 

Attitudes and values of a great carer 

We pride ourselves on providing exceptional care of the highest quality which is why we only hire exceptional carers who value client-carer relationships as much as we do. That means that you’re not only committed to providing high-quality care, but you’re also dedicated to building strong relationships with those you care for that are rooted in trust and respect. With a naturally compassionate attitude, you’ll be patient, empathic and always sensitive to the needs of others.
