Job description

At Newcross, we’re leading the revolution in personalised home care. Join us.

As a Care Assistant in Barnstaple, Tiverton, Bideford, Bude, and the surrounding areas, you’ll be the person that brings smiles to the faces of the people in our care. You will be working in the homes of children, alongside a supportive team of health and social care professionals. Your responsibilities will vary, including assisting with personal care tasks, feeding and PEG care, clinical needs, social activities and any additional complex care tasks required.

This role is a chance to make a real difference to children's lives - without your support, they may live a life constrained to specialist units or hospitals.

Employee perks

  • An hourly rate of up to £12.22, including holiday pay
  • Get paid as soon as you finish a shift with instant Flexi Pay
  • Free uniform and DBS check
  • Fixed hours on a rota basis
  • Access to Newcross World, a new world of learning, to manage skills, learn new ones and unlock new opportunities in the care sector
  • Access to NHS registered GPs and mental health support with virtual appointments

Flexi Pay!

The Flexi Pay feature on our app, HealthForceGo, allows you to immediately access an advance of up to 50% of the value of your completed shift! Includes weekends and bank holidays.

About you

We require all complex care workers to have around 3 months of experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one. 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. 

You’ll need to be happy assisting clients who may have 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, and the right to work in the UK is required.

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.
