Why saying yes to a 1 hour shift is a good idea

Accepting an hour long shift can lead to so much more!

One of the many benefits of the Careseekers platform is that we do not require minimum hours for bookings. This is to ensure that aged care and disability care seekers do not have to use their funding for hours they don't need. For care workers on the Careseekers platform there are numerous benefits in accepting these 1 hour or short shifts, which include:

  • It is the beginning of building your client base. Being flexible and willing to accommodate these shorter shifts shows motivation and stands out to care seekers.

  • Our on-boarding team awards great reviews to workers who accept these shifts. Careseekers' Account Manager, Clara says "Care workers who accept 1 hour shifts are stars! These shifts are so important to so many care seekers in our community and always lead to more work. I always give fantastic reviews to care workers who are willing to take these on."

  • The more hours you get, the higher you will rank in the Careseekers search results. You would be surprised how quickly the hours add up! This leads to you being much more visible to potential clients and, in turn, leads to more work.
