Alice Cox, Support Supervisor at Bluebird Care Oxfordshire, said: “I love that I am able to support our customers as much as I can and make a difference to their day.

"Seeing their faces smile as soon as you walk in and hearing all their stories that they are willing to share. This is one of the most rewarding jobs you can find.”

Melissa Charnock, Head of Marketing, Recruitment and Employee Engagement at Bluebird Care Oxford, said: “Coronavirus has affected many people through redundancy, unemployment, and furlough. Bluebird Care can offer a secure, stable career.

"No experience is necessary as we provide full training and support, however, due to the locations of our customers we require all our staff to have valid driving licenses.

“We know that many people will have experience in care within their daily lives - weather that’s bringing up their children, looking after a loved one or helping a neighbour.

"We also find that workers from retail, hospitality or customer service have great transferrable skills to become a Care Assistant. Over the year, we’ll continue our recruitment campaigns, interviewing and employing individuals who can deliver high quality care to our customers.”
