Carer / Care Assistant / Support Worker / Care Worker / Care Giver / Elderly Care Assistant


What will you be doing?

As Carer you will be working as part of a dedicated team of fully supported staff who have our resident’s emotional and physical wellbeing at the core of all they do. You will show warmth, and compassion to our residents and their families; helping to promote their independence and dignity.

Every day will be different, so you can expect to undertake work that’s as varied as it is rewarding. As a Carer, you’ll help our residents enjoy each day by making sure they get the quality care they deserve. You’ll assist with their daily living, encouraging their participation in meaningful activities as well as providing support and companionship.

What experience do you need?

Due to our strong training team, you do not need to have previous care experience. All we ask for is someone who is compassionate, has a can-do approach and excellent communication skills. Above all, you’ll be passionate about ensuring our residents have received the best care possible.

What will you get in return?

You’ll be working for one of the largest not for profit care providers in the UK. A great advantage of being a large organisation is that we can offer competitive pay, generous benefits and training to reward you for taking such good care of our residents.

Here’s an overview of some of the benefits you could get for working for us

;

  • Company pension
  • Company sick pay (after probation)
  • Weekend rates
  • Life Assurance
  • 28 days holiday entitlement (including bank holidays) pro rata
  • Free uniform

The Government’s ‘Infection Control Fund’ (introduced as a result of the Coronavirus) requires Care homes to restrict permanent and temporary staff to working in only one care home, to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.   As a result of this, if you already have another job elsewhere (either in Care or another sector) and you wish to continue working there alongside the Trust, unfortunately we would not be able to progress with your application at this time. However, if you are happy to consider committing to working for us exclusively until the restrictions are lifted we are happy to discuss guaranteeing you the hours you will lose from not being able to work your second job. Or once the restrictions are lifted, please do not hesitate to re-apply for any of our roles that maybe of interest to you then.

  • No. of hours per week: 35
