Be all you can be with Hamberley
At Ernstell House, 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
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.

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.
