Helping Hands continues to expand home care and specialist support services across Northumberland – and we are recruiting to meet growth.

We already employ a dedicated team of more than 500 people who work tirelessly throughout the county.

Candidates with or without experience in the care sector are invited to apply for posts as homecare support workers.

New recruits, male and female, are needed to work in Bellingham, Haltwhistle, Haydon Bridge and Hexham in the west of Northumberland; recruits are also required to work in the east of the county in Seaton Delaval, Cramlington, and Bedlington.

Amber Bays, head of HR, says: “These are great roles for people who have a care background and, or a caring attitude. The job can be tailored to suit the individual. We can offer flexible working hours and shifts.

“It can be a demanding role, but it’s often highly fulfilling, helping people maintain a quality of life in the comfort of their own home. You can really make a difference to the lives of others.”

Rates of pay are above average in the sector and we have a fabulous training programme. Anyone interested should call 01661 520935 or fill in the form online on this website.

Improvement changes within Helping Hands are now being reflected in our company brand, communications and other materials.

The roll-out and implementation of an extensive investment and culture change programme which started during the summer of 2017 is now becoming more visible to staff and the people we care for.

The first visible evidence of change is our logo and new website. Gone is the dated logo and website to be replaced with a modern, striking fluorescent green logo along with a highly responsive and informative website.

The new-look company identity, produced by Newcastle-based Room 8 Design, has been designed to stand-out and highlight the energy within the organisation. The hand script typeface promotes our personalised, hands on approach to care.

This new look and style will be carried across and standardised on all other materials including a strong branded uniform for care workers.

Our managing director David Harrison explained: “Helping Hands has been going through a significant period of investment and change during 2017. While there has been some disruption, I am delighted with the way this has progressed and how well our staff have embraced these changes.

“We are committed to driving forwards our improvement plan and a company-wide rebrand is the visible culmination of this change in our approach.

“The company name remains the same but the new logo better reflects our vision for the future and the energy we intend to bring to delivering high quality care to our service users.

“The change in logo, website, uniforms, stationery and marketing materials may appear superficial but it is all part of a more profound, professional change in the way Helping Hands promotes itself and delivers care in the future.”
