Newcross Healthcare is looking for professional, dedicated and experienced Care Assistants who are committed to delivering high-quality care to support a range of clients in the Edinburgh area through our friendly local branch.

As a naturally compassionate person, you will play an essential part in delivering great quality, person-centred care to every individual you encounter. This means recognising the capabilities of the person, promoting their dignity at all times and seeing them as more than just a care plan.

You will be providing care that supports life activities, enabling people to live as independently as possible, whilst providing essential support with washing, dressing, personal care and meal times.

You will be a permanent member of the healthcare team responsible for bringing the Newcross standard of care to every individual we care for.

Due to the location of our clients, access to your own transport is preferable.

Benefits

  • Salary of up to £11.86/hr, paid weekly including holiday pay
  • Permanent, flexible hours contract
  • Agreed local mileage payments for some clients
  • Criminal record check (PVG) and uniform FREE for a limited time!
  • Ongoing training and development available free through credits earned as you work
  • 24 hour support through dedicated central team
  • Local line manager and branch support
  • Online Intranet and smartphone app to manage your availability and bookings
  • Recommend a Friend scheme, paying up to £500 per successful referral
