Job description

At Newcross Healthcare, we believe everyone deserves the right to receive care in their own home

We’re recruiting a Care Assistant to join our team in the Gloucester area, delivering quality care in the home. You will be caring for individuals living with Parkinson's, MS, Epilepsy, physical disabilities, learning disabilities and brain or spinal injuries. This role involves working as part of a small health and social care team to support people with day-to-day activities, in line with their individual care plans. Specialist training will be given, tailored to the packages of care you work on, so this is a great chance to upskill in new areas.

Shifts: 12-hour night shifts.

Full-time and part-time hours are available with consistent clients.

Care Assistant requirements

To apply for this rewarding complex care role, you will need to have a minimum of 3 months of prior experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one. This will ensure you have an emotional and clinical understanding of what it takes to deliver home care. You may need to assist clients with limited mobility, however, if you do not have a valid Moving and Handling certificate, we can provide relevant training modules for you to complete in the induction process. Access to your own vehicle is desirable but not required. The right to work in the UK is essential.

Please note: To work in a care home in England from 11 November 2021, the post holder is required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 unless clinically exempt.
