At Newcross, we’re transforming home care across the UK - join us as a Care Assistant!

As a Care Assistant in Taunton and the surroundings, you will be an empathetic and compassionate caregiver ready to join a small team of health and social care professionals. In this role, you will be providing personalised care in the homes of service users living with complex healthcare needs. Your various duties will include aiding with personal care tasks, posture care, meal preparation, feeding and PEG care, clinical needs, medication support, social activities and any additional services needed.

Flexi Pay!

Could you be our next caregiving hero?

To apply for this Care Assistant 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’ll need to be an approachable and understanding people person, ready to become a key part of your service users’ support network. 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, and the right to work in the UK is essential.
