The first step before creating a listing is ensuring you are ready. Do you have a start date in mind? Is the person receiving care (and family members) ready? Is your source of funding ready?
Make sure these are finalised before creating a listing.
Once ready, follow these simple steps and you’ll have a great listing ready to go in no time:
What do you need?
To find the right person, start by writing down the different things you want help with. By doing this, it will:
- Help you figure out what you need and the sort of helper you’re looking for
- Describe the skills and experience a worker needs for the role
- Set clear expectations around duties and relationships.
You might find you have a list of around 10-20 pretty detailed activities. Once you’ve got a master list of the things you need help with, group them into 5-10 general points. This will help you to fill out your job listing.
Keep your list simple and straightforward. Describe the services you're looking for and the skills your worker needs. An example of a required skill might be: a full driver’s licence/experienced driver; experience using a hoist; knowledge of how to bathe and dress a client safely.
Time to create your listing
Once you’re clear on what you need, log in and create your listing at Mycare. There are simple steps to follow and we've added hints so it's easier to fill in.
A listing at Mycare must be accurate and non-discriminatory. That means you shouldn't use language that could be interpreted as seeking someone of a particular age, gender or race.
To be on the safe side you should be mindful of requirements related to a person’s:
- physical appearance, e.g. hair colour or skin colour
