Job Description

Woodbrook Care is a leading provider of home care services in County Wexford and our ethos is that if we look after you, our care staff, you’ll deliver a better service to our clients.
In addition to ensuring you get your statutory entitlements and you’re fairly paid for both travel time (time spent in the car) and mileage (KMs travelled) between client homes, we aim to:
  • treat you with the respect and compassion that your role deserves
  • be easy to contact and willing to listen to your concerns
  • build rotas that work for you so you make the most of your available hours
  • incentivise you to do covers rather than plague you to do them
  • invest in you by offering paid training and opportunities to progress
We have opportunities throughout County Wexford but we have a particular need in the Wexford Town, Gorey, Enniscorthy and New Ross areas.
About You
  • You must have attained or be studying towards QQI Level 5 Modules in Care Skills/Support and Caring for the Elderly (or have equivalent or better qualification) OR have at least 1 year’s paid experience delivering personal care in a health care setting (e.g. a nursing home or another home care agency).
  • Availability to work every second weekend is an advantage but not a requirement
  • You must have a positive attitude and enjoy helping vulnerable people.
  • You must have a full driver’s licence and your own transport.
