Job description

At Newcross, we believe everyone deserves the right to receive care in their own home. Do you?

We’re actively seeking an experienced Care Assistant to join our team in Stonehaven, Laurencekirk and the surrounds, encouraging our service users to live a rich, independent life. In this role, you’ll work as part of a close-knit, collaborative team of health and social care professionals, delivering care in the home. Your day-to-day role will include assisting service users with personal care tasks, posture care, clinical needs, medication support, feeding and PEG care, social activities and any other services required.

Applicants will need experience of working within children's services, palliative care, challenging behaviours and learning disabilities.

Care Assistant requirements

You’ll be an empathetic and compassionate caregiver, with experience of caring professionally or for a loved one. You’ll be comfortable assisting clients with limited mobility, and with a valid Moving and Handling certificate. You must be willing to be SSSC registered and will need the right to work in the UK. Ultimately, you’ll be fuelled by your desire to make a real difference to the lives of people in need. Access to your own vehicle is desirable but not required.

This role requires you to be a driver with a valid drivers license.

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.
