Clarendon Home Care is a leading provider of person-centred home care and live-in care services in the Surrey area. For over twenty years we’ve been a family-run business with family values at our core and the key to our success has been simple: we employ the best carers who are committed to changing people’s lives.
Clarendon Home Care was founded in 1994 by Jackie Jones, a former care manager who started her career with a long and rewarding spell as a care worker. Armed with her experiences of caring for the elderly in the local community, she began to sketch out her vision for Clarendon Home Care and the way it would set itself apart:
“With Clarendon it was my idea that we would treat each person we care for with dignity and respect and that we would do our best to fit around their needs. I also wanted a place where we could do the same for our carers. I wanted them to feel like part of something bigger and to be given the respect and rewards they deserve for the amazing job they do in the local community.”
If you want to join our team of Home Care Assistants then all you need is a friendly, caring attitude and the desire to want to make a difference in people’s lives. All successful candidates, whatever your previous experience, will be given comprehensive in-house training by our fully accredited team:

We are constantly recruiting people in the following areas:
• Walton and Hersham
• Englefield Green
Experience is always beneficial and at Clarendon Home Care, we’re committed to the further development of experienced care workers who are looking to extend their career in the care industry. That said, some of our best carers are people who came to us with a background of never having done the job at all. For more than twenty years, we have learned that a caring attitude, diligence, compassion, reliability and flexibility are equally as important as experience. It also helps if you’re a good listener, have great time management skills and you’re great with people.
While it is always an advantage for our carers to be able to drive, it is not essential. We employ a number of non-drivers, motor-cyclists and cyclists. We even have some carers who do their round on foot and get the double benefit of money in their pocket and regular, daily exercise. It is true that if you have a car then it increases the amount of work we may be able to offer you. No matter how you may get around, if you have a caring attitude and are interested in working with the elderly, we’d still love to hear from you.
If your application is successful and whatever your level of previous experience, you will be trained in-house by our fully accredited training team. During your induction training you will learn about:
• Manual Handling
• Personal Care
• Food and Hygiene
• Medication Administration
• Managing Challenging Behaviour
• Company Standards
Your training won’t end there. Once you start working for us, you’ll get regular support from our staff of senior care workers and they will continue to give you all the benefit of their years’ of experience via routine appraisals and on-site supervisions.
We’ll never throw you in at the deep end either. As a new Home Care Assistant, you’ll shadow experienced care workers at first and you’ll only go out on your own once you have been supervised and assessed by a senior home care assistant.
As a new Home Care Assistant, you will also be given the chance to take part in further training modules to refresh and update your induction training including full training in the Care Certificate. At the same time, we will help you to further your career in the care industry by enrolling you for study in the QCF Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care.
As your career develops with us, you’ll have the opportunity to become a senior home care assistant and to move on to higher level qualifications such as QCF Levels 3 and 5 as well as a Foundation Degree or a Social Work Degree.
At Clarendon Home Care, we provide all of our care staff with the specialist training they need to rise to the daily challenges of looking after someone in their own home. We also recognise the need for life experience, common sense and a willingness to care for those that need it most.

For over twenty years, this has allowed us to attract and retain some of the very best care workers in the industry. In turn, this has also helped us to maintain the highest standards of care.

Because of this, we value our employees and always do everything we can to give them the respect and rewards they deserve.

Remember that on top of your hourly rate, we will pay you a mileage allowance for the distance you travel between home care visits. This is currently set at 25p per mile. This will add up to around £1.00-£1.40 per litre of fuel for an average small car. The distance you travel for each visit is calculated automatically by our dedicated computer software so you are certain to be paid for the miles you drive.
