I have worked part-time here for a just a few months. It is my first health care job. Having come from a high salary industry I am finding it hard to get used to the way the pay works, eg. If I start with my first client at 9am and work all the way through until 5pm, I am not paid for all of that time. I am paid €13 per hour for the time I spend with clients, but each of my client appointments comes with 10-15 minutes travel time for which I am not paid and neither are my travel expenses. So it works out around minimum wage for me.Apart from that I do find the job to be extremely rewarding. The management and office team are efficient, caring, and supportive. The option to choose my hours is a huge pro and there seems to be lots of flexibility there. It is really interesting meeting each client and getting to know them, and humbling to help them. I am very glad to be working at Be Independent.
Pros
Flexible Hours, Supportive Management
Cons
Misleading hourly wage

I have been working for Be Indepentent Home Care for two years. Everybody from the two nurses Alice and Caitriona who started Be Independent Home Care, my supervisors and the office team have been very supportive and helpful. I love meeting all the different clients . Each person has different challenges to face each day but despite this they have their life story to share which makes the job so interesting.Everyone at the office are there at the end of a phone to support you when needed which is great. Be Indepenent Home Care offer training and are always promoting your career development. Its a great company to work for.You' re able to pick your hours that suit you which helps give you a good work life balance. If you ' re a HCA that walks or cycles to work the company provide you with a voucher for your rain gear. All your needs are thought about. Your day as a HCA is never boring as each day brings different experiences. When you touch a person' s life it can make your day. This is what makes your job so rewarding at Be Independent Home Care.
Pros
Offer lots of training.

I worked for Be Independent Home Care for over a year. I have really pleased my time with Be Independent Home Care which care about the communication with their employees and clients. They provide the information about health care every time and let us involve the trainings as much as we needed. The agency has excellent management on payment and benefits for the all carers equally and honestly.

An excellent company with a great belief that everyone deserves to live independently. The care management team are great; they provide constant support to the employees. Excellent communication system between the office and the workplace. I would highly recommend this job. The hours are created around your own hours depending on where you live. The houses are mostly close together.
