Working with Newcross will give you unprecendented access to flexible full time and part time hours, a permanent contract with a minimum hours guarantee, a Perks at Work scheme and our Flexi Pay feature.

The role

As a Care Assistant, you will ensure that service users receive excellent care and support with various tasks. These will include personal care, clinical needs, social activities and any other additional services required.
