I worked 1 year for be independent and was one of the best experience that I had. I had never worked in a health area and I could learn a lot. The first week was scary, but once you understand the importance of your job, you just fall in love. Deal with some clients was challenging but even in bad days we can learn.The reason that I left was because of the time I had to cycling in a really bad weather conditions. It's not easy if your not used with. And I don't think is fair don't get paid for the time we spend cycling, riding on e-scooter or etc, to our next client. In general Be Independent is a good company which you can easily deal about your shift and the managers and team mates are totally friendly.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Cycling but not get paid whilst it.

I have been working with Be Independent HomeCare for over 6 years and have found them to be a fantastic employer. Among the many benefits of working with the company are: flexible working hours to suit your needs, free ongoing training (paid to attend), carer of the month reward and health insurance discount scheme.Our supervisors are always very helpful and on hand to assist with whatever situation might arise, and there’s also great support from Management and office staff.Carers and clients are well matched and we are always introduced to our client before we commence working with them. Be Independent have been extremely supportive since the start of Covid 19 Pandemic. We have weekly Covid 19 communication from management and we’re kept well supplied with PPE.I’m very happy working with Be Independent and would highly recommend it as a great place to work.
Pros
Flexible working hours, paid training. Relaxed working environment.
Cons
No cons.

The company adapts the clients and the employees according to their demands/abilities, and are always available to give the carers all the support they might need, since the knowledge about the client up to adapt your working hours according to your availability.I strongly recommend the company for the ones who are interested in work as care assistant.

I have been working for Be Independent for over four years. Compared to other home care companies I've worked for, Be Independent is by far the company that values its employees most. We are fairly paid, they offer continuous training with paid hours. In addition, the company cares about the mental health and well-being of its employees as we have the Free Employee Assistance Programme - a 24/7 service that offers psychological support and is completely confidential. The relations between care assistants, managers and office staff are pleasant and respectful, I am always introduced personally to new clients and hours are offered according to my availability.

I have been working with Be Independent for 4 years and find them to be a fantastic company to work for. The hours are flexible and the management and office staff are truly professional and always at the end of a phone if needed. Additional training is provided and paid for by Be Independent and introduction of carers to clients is done smoothly and effectively. I would highly recommend working for this wonderful company.

Since joining Be Independent Homecare 2 years ago i found this company to be an excellent place to work. The management and support from the company has been second to none from the very moment I started working here. They always put their care team and clients safety first. They provide excellent advice and continually offer courses to continue improving our service. They are Understanding, kind, Friendly and very attentive about your concerns whatever they may be. Since working with them I have gone from strenght to strenght and boosted my confidence with work hugely. I couldn't reccommend this company enough to work for.

I worked with Beindependent for nearly 3 years, I found the whole team from management to HR and office staff to be very professional, empathetic and understanding if requesting time off. Upskilling and training paid for by the company and our wages covered to attend. Management treated me like a teammate, there was never a distinction. This companies ethos is to put their Cares first. A very good company to work for.

I have worked with this company for almost 2 years. I recommended it to many people. They support the carers in many ways. They put carer's safety and satisfaction at first, they manage the work schedule the most suitable for carers, and the administration staff are always quick responsive. Regular trainings and competitive salary are offered. They are very flexible depending on carers' needs.

Be Independent is the best Care company, because they are always concerned about employees; they do everything they can to make workers happy; they care about our health, psychic condition and are always willing to help us. I have been working at Be Independent for 8 months and I don't have complains. I met wonderful people, both at the company and at clients. I can say that I feel really safe while I work and also I have a fair remuneration. I do recommend Be independent.
