Orkney Islands Council’s Care at Home Service is part of the fabric of our community. Our teams of skilled Home Carers make a world of difference to the people who use our Care at Home Service, by providing the best possible care and support that enables people to remain in their own homes. Whether we are providing one shower visit a week or four visits daily to assist with a variety of needs from washing and dressing, assisting with medication or serving a meal, our Home Carers are making a huge difference to the lives of the people supported by the Service.

So, I ask you, are you a caring, compassionate and reliable person who is interested in supporting people in your own local community? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of people within your community? Do you want to help people thrive, not just survive? Then being a Home Carer could be just the job you are looking for. We are looking for people who share our values and who share our commitment to providing a high quality of service while continually striving to be the best they can be by:

• providing excellent care and support to all of our Service Users
• showing dignity and respect to all of the people we work with
• working well together as a Home Care team.

This is an extremely rewarding role where you will be proud of the difference you make! To get an idea of what our home carers do and for further information, please click on these links below or copy and paste it into your browser:
