Job description

At Newcross Healthcare, we’re transforming home care across the UK. Be a part of it.

At Newcross Healthcare, we believe that everyone deserves to receive the highest standard of care in their own home. We’re actively seeking a Care Assistant to join our team in Swindon, Royal Wootton Bassett, Highworth, Lechlade, Cricklade and the surroundings. In this role, you will be responsible for assisting service users with various tasks including clinical needs, feeding and PEG care, personal care tasks, meal preparation, making up beds, social activities and any additional services required.

Hours: full-time and part-time.

Shifts: 8am-1pm, 5pm-10pm and long days 9am-9pm or 8am-8pm.

You will receive

  • An hourly rate of up to £17.67, including holiday pay
  • The ability to get paid instantly
  • Fixed hours on a rota basis
  • Access to Newcross World, where you can develop your skills and unlock new opportunities in the care sector
  • Access to appointments with NHS-registered GPs through a Virtual GP app
  • Face to face and telephone counselling to help you when life gets tough

Flexi Pay!

Get paid instantly with the Flexi Pay feature on our app, HealthForceGo. This exclusive perk allows you to immediately withdraw up to 50% of the value of your completed shifts as and when you need it - even on weekends and bank holidays!

About you

We require all complex care workers to have at least 3 months of experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one, a valid certificate in Moving and Handling and the right to work in the UK. Access to your own mode of transport would be beneficial but isn't mandatory. Ultimately, you’ll need to be a real people person and always be willing to go the extra mile to ensure the best possible outcomes are met. 

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.
