Benefits of being a Newcross healthcare assistant

There are plenty of benefits that come with being a Newcross healthcare assistant. From same day pay to health and wellbeing support, we hope that the perks we offer ensure that you’ll feel truly appreciated as a member of our community.


We understand that you’ll sometimes need to access your wages before payday – and that’s exactly what FlexiPay offers. You’ll be able to withdraw up to 50% of the value of any completed shift when you need it, giving you more control over your pay.

Introduce a friend

If you know a healthcare worker that would be a great fit for the Newcross community, you could earn up to £500 for introducing them to us. Simply send them an invite and your referral number through our innovative app and you’ll start earning when they complete a shift! Plus, you can introduce as many people as you like!

Learning and development

At Newcross, we want to help you to get the most out of your career and reach your personal goals. This is why we created Newcross World, the UK’s first training app for healthcare workers. Newcross World can be used on any device, even when you’re on the move, and you could increase your work opportunities by 50% by completing the relevant training.


We offer our healthcare assistants a wide range of fully-funded apprenticeships in health and social care with the aim to help them to develop and grow their careers. We do this by partnering with industry-leading learning providers who offer the highest standards of theoretical and practical training to accompany learning on the job – creating a complete experience.

Health and wellbeing

We know that we need to care for you to enable you to care for others, and myHealthPlan helps us to achieve this. myHealthPlan includes being able to access virtual GP appointments and mental health support from the comfort of your own home at a time that fits around your shifts and suits you.

Flexible hours

Achieving the perfect work/life balance is very important to our healthcare assistants, and this is made easier through being able to share your availability through our HealthForceGo app. We’ll use the information that you give us to find the right shifts for you, and you can work as little or often as you like.

Free security checks

Everyone who joins Newcross will receive a free DBS/PVG check – so there are no start-up costs involved for you.

Discounts on your favourite brands

Through Perks at Work, you can access over 30,000 discounts on products from your favourite retailers, including supermarkets, fashion brands, and travel companies. There are also discounts on cinema tickets and other activities to enjoy – so there’s plenty to choose from!

Uniform and welcome box

When you join us, you’ll receive your uniform ID badge with a welcome box that contains a number of great items and will instantly welcome you into the Newcross community.
