Why join Ocean Healthcare?

Flexibility – a lifestyle choice.

We genuinely believe that we offer people the chance to make their own choices about how and when they work so that they can fit this round other commitments.  Every week you let us know your availability so, it might be you only want to work 2 nights one week but the next week a few days and a weekend.  As long as you tell us we will look to fill those hours.

Variety – a change of scene.

Depending upon your flexibility in terms of travel you don’t have to work in the same location every time.  We work with a large range of care settings so you could work in a different location every time.  You can also tell  us if you don’t want to work in a certain location.

Assistance – we’re human too.

Whilst some of our processes use technology we recognise that talking to a real person can feel more personal so don’t be afraid to call us.
Each area has its own Booking Coordinator and they are likely to speak to you weekly regarding shifts and availability and they will also be happy to answer any queries that you have day to day.
Our three branches, based in Paignton, Exeter and Barnstaple, are open to walk-in visitors or inquiries on weekdays 9-5pm.   We also hold training, locally, at branches so chances are you’ll get to know your local team pretty quickly and some other Ocean Healthcare members.

Pay – competitive remuneration

Our Healthcare Assistants (HCA) pay rates range from £9.00 to £15.50 depending upon what shifts you work.  All weekends shifts are paid at £11.75.
Our Nurses (RMN / RGN) pay rates range from £20.00 – £30.00 again depending up what shift our worked.  Weekends shifts are paid at £24.00.
Our rates are regularly reviewed to ensure we our competitive.  On completion of a time sheet you will be paid weekly.  If you travel beyond 10 miles we will also pay mileage.

Free Uniform – looking the part!

We provide everyone with an Ocean Healthcare tunic when they join.

Training – free….

We offer a wide variety of free mandatory in-house training at local branches including Manual Handling and Basic Life Support.  We also offer more advanced courses like epilepsy and medicines.

Technology – we’re not in the dark ages!

We have our own App which means you can submit time sheets quicker and easier. 

Our Philosophy – Live Happy, Care Well

We believe that if people are happy they are more inclined to care well and we want you to be happy working for Ocean Healthcare.
Ocean Healthcare is an agency but we also like to think of it as a community of like minded, caring individuals who all want to Live Happy and Care Well.
