Here at Right at Home we have an amazing care team of Home Care Assistants, Live in Care Assistants and a fabulous office team. We have worked hard to find the best people and in order to hang onto them we need to make sure they are happy in their jobs. There are many aspects to this and different things are important to different people however for many being able to progress in their career in a big factor, that is why we have put a lot of work into developing our Building Brilliance Programme and our Career Pathways.
Our MD, Alastair Shanks says “Gone are the days of care work being a dead end, minimum wage job. Our CareGivers are amazing people, we put a lot of effort into finding the right people with the emotional intelligence and empathy to be able to become a great CareGiver. It is then up to us to support our team members to develop their careers if that is what they wish to do.”
Building Brilliant Careers in Care
We have developed a framework to support all our team in their efforts to be fantastic at what they do. This process starts from induction, in order to pass probation and become a fully fledged Right at Home CareGiver you will reach the “Brilliant Basics” level. Once at this level you will be supported by your manager at regular reviews to push towards the “Brilliant Always” Level and even further to “Brilliant and Beyond”.
There are many benefits to this new framework with the most positive feedback being around clarity of what someone needs to do in order to get even better at their role.
Care Career Pathways
Linked into the Building Brilliance Program are our Care Career Pathways. These are effectively a roadmap for developing your career within Right at Home. There are a few different roads that you can choose to take – a few examples are detailed below;
Specialist CareGiver Career Pathway
Care Coordinator Career Pathway
Care Manager / Registered Manager Career Pathway
We have a policy of advertising any new positions within the team and have had some great success in promoting people from within the team, a great example is Adrianna who accidentally applied for a role in care but is now making a great career out of it.
