Teign Angels Ltd is looking for a dedicated, professional, compassionate person to join its small care team part-time, delivering care in people’s homes in and around Newton Abbot. This might range from helping people to wash and dress, supporting them to mobilise using equipment, accompanying them to GP/hospital appointments, and to engage in their local community.
We are a well-respected care provider, having earned a reputation for providing ‘the gold standard’ of care. We’re only a small staff team, so you would get to know us all pretty quickly, and we value the input, experience, and opinion of all of our staff members when we’re trying to come up with solutions to best help the people we support.
Our comprehensive training programme is delivered in-house, so that we can tailor it to your individual learning style, and make it relevant to situations and scenarios that we come across within our own practice. These range from ‘Death, Dying and Bereavement’, ‘SOVA/POCA’, to ‘Moving & Positioning’, ‘Scam Awareness’, and many more. In our CQC report, published in February 2023, one of our current members of staff said that our training programme was ‘the best I’ve ever had in 25 plus years in the care industry’.
You would be required to have a full driving licence and access to your own vehicle. We have a company car for emergencies, so if something goes wrong with your vehicle, we have some back up. Previous experience of working in care isn’t required, we cover all of the procedures, protocols and legislation in our training – however, a desire and passion to support people as best as you possibly can is essential.

The care we provide ranges from personal care and meal preparation right up to day sits and outings.
We care about our staff just as much as we care about our clients. In fact, our Director, Dawn, was awarded CEO of the Year in the CEO Today Healthcare Awards in 2018.
All of our training is delivered in-house by Sophia, our other Director. This means we can tailor training to your learning styles and the needs of our current clients. In addition to this, our induction training is followed by hands-on training with a member of our team in order for you to get to know our clients and their individual routines – so, if you’ve never worked in care before, don’t worry!
