Have been working with Irish Homecare a while now and I love my job. You're offered the chance to become a qualifed carer and company subsidise your course so its a massive plus. Only downside to that is that people tend to leave once they are qualified for many reasons including pay, (currently the lowest paid agency carers in Ireland), mileage only paid on the very rare occasion, and a lack of support from higher management. We do however have great support from our Service team leader and the girls in the office are fabulous but everyone seems to be doing the job with one hand tied behind their back.

Senior management not appreciating staff.
