Job Description

Be all you can be with Hamberley

At Richmond Manor, our Care Assistants are called Homemakers. More than support workers, care assistants or healthcare assistants – they are carers and companions all in one. They have the time to get to know our residents and are trusted to give each person the care they need, in the way they like.

We offer our Care Assistants - our Homemakers:

  • Generous, above-market rate pay for carers.
  • Contracted hours - part and full-time available.
  • 12-hour shifts.
  • Enhanced overtime rates.
  • Quality bonus scheme linked to CQC Rating.
  • Casual dress. Because we want both you and our residents to feel comfortable and at home, Homemakers don’t wear uniforms.
  • Refer a Friend Bonus - up to £750 per referral *T&Cs Apply

Be different – be a Homemaker

At Hamberley, we believe that our residents deserve something ‘Extra Special, Every Day’. And at the heart of this model are our Homemakers – care assistants with a difference. A Homemaker is a unique caring role for a unique person, where you can care with a difference.

  • A varied role where no two days are the same. Homemakers, our name for care assistants, care for individual people in the way a family member might care for someone in their home. We don’t do timetabled task-based care – we care for each individual in the way that works best for them. Whether that’s administering medication, helping make someone’s bed, arranging a family meal with their loved ones or taking them to the beauty salon, you’ll always be doing something different. Our Homemakers focus on the tiny details that make our residents unique, and tailor care to each and every individual.
  • A chance to make a real difference to our residents’ lives. Often healthcare assistants, care assistants and domiciliary care assistants find they don’t get to spend enough time with the people they care for to make a real difference. Not at Hamberley. As a Homemaker you have fewer people to care for, but you spend more time with them. It’s a more satisfying and fulfilling role that is better for our residents. That’s why the model has won awards.
  • Excellent opportunities for learning and development. We will support you with all the training you need, including NVQ qualifications and further clinical training if you want to specialise in areas like dementia and nutrition.
  • Supportive team environment. Being kind and supportive to each other is key to our ability to show kindness and companionship to our residents. We truly believe this across all parts of our organisation. It’s just one of the reasons that, when people join us, they stay with us.

Join us at Ampthill's most stunning care home

Richmond Manor is a luxurious care home in Ampthill, Bedfordshire, part of the award-winning Hamberley Care Homes – offering luxury care homes in beautiful locations throughout the UK. Residents live in spacious, stylish ensuite rooms, and enjoy beautifully furnished shared spaces and landscaped gardens. From the deluxe picture house – where we screen classic films – to the on-site luxury spa – offering hairdressing, manicures and relaxing therapies – everything has been designed and finished with the care and attention you would expect from a 5-star hotel.

Could you be part of our team?

We provide full training and induction, so we’re more interested in you as a person than your specific care experience.

You may have experience as a healthcare assistant, care assistant, carer, home care assistant or domiciliary care assistant and are looking for a different approach, a nicer work environment and a more satisfying role.

If you have no work experience in care but are interested in helping people live happy lives, we’ll guide you to a fantastic care assistant career through our Hamberley Care Home Training Roadmap.

What is important is that you have passion, empathy and dedication to help our residents live their lives to the fullest. We will support you with everything else!
