Premier Community is a family business that provides a variety of mobility and home care products and services to enable service users and customers to remain as independent as possible at home.

They provide care to hundreds of residents across the county – and they’re looking for new team members to begin a rewarding career in care work.

The home care sector has experienced unique challenges over the past 20 months, with low staffing levels causing difficulties. But Premier Community is bucking the trend with a growing base of customers helping it to go from strength to strength.

Full-time, part-time and flexible contracts available

“With over 25 years of experience, innovation, and dedication, and working from multiple locations, our family business continues to drive us towards professional quality services that go that extra mile, and importantly have you at the heart of all we do,” says Gill Isterling, company founder

“Our quest for quality care from a well-trained and cared-for staff base, excellent terms and conditions for our staff have held us firm over this period of time. We really glad about what our new starters are saying about working with us.”

One new team member said: “Ever since I joined the company, I have felt valued, welcomed and supported. The recruitment team guided me every step of the way and now I get to work in my community, helping people remain independent.

“There are some tougher shifts and some tricky times within the role but that’s the same with any job. I learn, and I grow... Best decision ever to join Premier Community.”

Staff wellbeing is extremely important and the firm has recently overhauled the way it manages its teams to ensure smaller, more local care teams.

“This has helped staff feel well supported and part of a team and be able to give something back to their own communities as well as cut down on a lot of travelling,” says Gill.

“We also use technology to make life much easier for our carers and the environment, apps that put everything the carers need in their hands and cut down massively on journey times and form filling.”

There are a range of roles available to suit your needs, with wages that reflect the demand of the job.

“No one wants to work long tiring hours without a break, so all our carers have at least two days off a week and choose their own availability on our full-time, part-time and flexible contracts with the peace of mind of guaranteed hours,” she adds.

“Our wage structure offers the best local rates of pay as well as bonuses, enhancements and unsocial hours payments. Staff can even draw down 80 per cent of wages the moment a call is completed.

“Being fulfilled in your job really makes a difference to our personal wellbeing so we are always looking for ways to make Premier Community a great career choice.

“Social care can be the start of a really positive career progression into social work or nursing, and within our own organisation 90 per cent of our managers are internally appointed.

“We are always on the lookout for the sort of people who can make a difference when it comes to caring, because it’s our carers that make us stand out as one of the best home care organisations.”
