Job description

Could you be our next caregiving champion?

We’re recruiting a Care Assistant in Bridgwater and the surroundings, to provide outstanding care to service users living with various complex healthcare needs. You will have the natural ability build meaningful and lasting relationships with the people you care for, as well as your supportive health and social care team.

In this role, you will be working in the homes of service users to assist with personal care, clinical needs, posture care, tracheostomy care, epilepsy, ventilation, feeding and PEG care, social activities and any other services needed.

We also want candidates to be able to demonstrate occasions where they have exhibited our core values of positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness.

If you do not have a current Moving and Handling certificate, we will support you with training during your induction period.
