A West Sussex home care provider has announced that from the 1st February 2016 all care and support workers at its company owned office in Pulborough will be receiving a substantial increase to their hourly rates of pay.
In addition to an attractive package, a 23.5% increase is being awarded to the current weekday rates for contact time, or time spent with the client, which will increase the weekday hourly rate to £10.50 per hour pro rata. Care workers can also expect to earn an increase to their current wages at weekends and over bank holidays.
Kevin Lewis, Caremark Limited’s owner and founder commented: “We are delighted to be able to offer our care workers this uplift in pay. The need for well trained, compassionate care staff is ongoing to meet the increasing need in the local market. We feel these increases will enable us to continue attracting and recruiting the very best staff and retain the excellent care workers currently delivering a high quality service to all our clients. We want to recognize and reward our care workers for the fantastic service they provide in our local community.”
Caremark believes this new deal for their care workers to be the best in West Sussex and reflects the high regard they have for their dedicated and hard-working staff in the company owned Pulborough office.
