Home Care Assistant Jobs - Good Oaks Staff get pay rise

Following a significant pay increase and reorganisation in October last year, Good Oaks have again increased the rates it pays visiting home carers to make it the leading home care agency in the Bournemouth and Poole conurbation.

Is now the time to change your Home Care Assistant Job or embark on a new career and join Good Oaks?

From April this year, people working in Good Oaks’ Care Assistant jobs in Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch are receiving a pay increase of nearly 6%, to make the minimum amount Good Oaks pays £8.50 an hour, up to £10.50 an hour during peak times during the week and weekend.

Peak times include before 9am and after 5pm Monday to Friday, and all weekend. Bank holidays remain double-time, therefore up to £21 an hour, and mileage is paid at 35 pence per mile.

Staff benefits also remain; such as free gym membership and AA breakdown cover including Home Start.

Notably, Good Oaks is also one of very few Home Care Companies that advertises its’ pay rates publicly. This is to increase transparency in the sector, and to contribute to driving up home care assistant job salaries. Click the link to find the full rates we pay our home care assistants.
