Description

Subject to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, it's essential that we continue recruiting safely. Therefore, interviews and communication will be virtual wherever possible and this will be communicated to you directly by the hiring manager. Please also expect that advert closing dates and interview dates may change as required. We still continue to welcome applications for our current roles and wish you the best of luck with your application.

We are recruiting across all 7 of our care homes with a number of opportunities to work on a flexible bank contract.

About the role

A great care assistant is kind, patient and respectful.

Could this be you?

Come and join our team if you looking for a job where no two days are the same, you want to come into work knowing you're able to make people feel empowered and living their best lives.

Does this sound like a career you'd be interested in?

If you have:

  • An ability to be flexible and adaptable to meet the needs of our residents
  • Excellent communication and observational skills
  • The ability to work well as part of a team
  • A positive, friendly and proactive attitude

Then, this could be the job for you!

We appreciate that the best care assistants bring life experience and strong values to their everyday duties within our older people's homes. Through treating our residents with dignity and respect, you will be able to build strong relationships, centred on personal, practical social and emotional care needs of residents.

Day to day duties will involve administering medication, excellent communication with residents and helping both them and their families when it comes to supportive living conversations – on other days you may even find yourself on a group day out to the seaside.

 It's all about ensuring the residents are living happy and healthy lives.
