Training news at Trinity
We are making a big commitment to training “We’re making a big commitment to training,” says Head of Operations, Derek Brougham. “We want all our staff to be the best
At Trinity we have a comprehensive 6 step recruitment process to ensure we only recruit the best quality Homecare Assistants that most closely match our clients’ needs. Our recruitment process comprises:
Once you have carefully read about the roles and responsibilities of a Homecare Assistant, you should call the recruitment team directly or complete an online application form. This will be assessed by a member of Trinity’s recruitment team and if the initial criteria are met you will be invited to complete a telephone interview. We aim to respond to all online applications within 1 working day.
The telephone interview will last about 10 – 15 minutes. You will be asked a series of questions to judge your experience and qualifications, your communication skills and most importantly your compassion and suitability for the role.
We will ask you to complete a brief online assessment. These assessments have certification from the British Psychological Society and help show us how a candidate’s personality characteristics and cognitive abilities fit the job by comparing their traits to those of successful performers. We will also ask you to complete an online attitude fit assessment which shows your attitudes toward work and work-related issues by measuring for counter-productive behaviours.
Having met the initial requirements we will then invite you to attend an interview at your local office. You will be asked to complete a written application form and you’ll have the opportunity to meet the team at Trinity.
If you are applying for live-in care work we will develop a personal profile of you, taking into consideration your personality, history, experience, skills and preferences for our MatchCare service.
If you are successful at interview then we will make a provisional job offer and discuss pay, terms and conditions and a potential start date with you.
You will then be booked on to a Trinity Induction Programme. This will ensure that you have the knowledge needed to provide the high standard of care we pride ourselves in.
If you accept the job offer our Recruitment Team will carry out reference checks and ask you to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
The DBS service helps employers make safer recruitment decisions and prevents unsuitable people from working with vulnerable groups. This replaces the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA). This is a mandatory requirement required under the Health & Social Care Act.
