Care Assistant

Posted 20 July 2021

Are YOU what we are looking for? Are you a people person? Do you like helping people? If so we want to hear from you!

Would you like to get paid for “just being you?” Would you like to make a difference and really touch the lives of people in a way only YOU can?

We are looking for people just like you to join our team of carers helping and supporting our vulnerable service users in their own homes

Your visits are not just about the practical help that you will be providing, you are also there to support our service user’s emotional needs - they may live alone and be somewhat isolated from society.  Which is why the relationship that a service user has with their carer assistant is a very important one – a kind word and someone to talk to or a smile from a care assistant can make their day!

We need exceptional caring people whose kindness shines through. You will need to be flexible as visits are 7 days a week, 365 days a year at varying times of the day, depending on what help is needed and will often include:

  • Personal Care (bathing/showering/toileting/etc.)
  • Preparing and serving meals/snacks
  • Taking and managing their medication
  • Light domestic duties

No Experience? No problem! If you can see yourself in this job, we will give you all the tools you need to make a real difference to people’s lives.

Full training is provided followed by shadow shifts with an experienced carer.  Ongoing training updates are available throughout your time with us.  We will even support you to do NVQ qualifications and paid job shadowing.

Life experience is just as important as previous professional experience, be one of the people that make a difference and touch a life today. And as you can see we look after you by offering

  • Competitive hourly rates from £10.40
  • 28 days’ annual leave (pro rata) *
  • £200 Referral bonus
