Job description

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of individuals with complex healthcare needs?

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 Exeter and the surrounding area. In this role, you will be working alongside a small health and social care team to assist a young boy with complex care needs. Your responsibilities will include following the service user's care plan, monitoring his seizures throughout the night and completing MAR and seizure charts. It will be your duty to ensure the highest standard of care is delivered at all times.

This is a unique opportunity to work as part of a team on specific care packages on a regular basis. Whether you have some professional care experience or have cared for a loved one or friend, we want to hear from you.

What we're looking for

You’ll be an empathetic and compassionate Care Assistant, with at least 3 months of experience caring professionally or for a loved one. You’ll be comfortable assisting clients with limited mobility and will hold a valid Moving and Handling certificate. You’ll be fuelled by your desire to make a real difference in the lives of people in need. 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.
