Job description

Are you looking to enhance your care career?

As a Care Assistant in Woking, Hersham and the surrounding areas, you’ll be the person that brings smiles to the faces of the children in our care. You'll work as part of a small health and social care team in the homes of children to care for them throughout the night. You'll support with personal care tasks, epilepsy, clinical needs, meal preparation, posture care, socialising and any additional tasks required. This role is a chance to make a real difference in children's lives - without your support, they may live a life constrained to specialist units or hospitals.

This role involves waking nights from Monday to Sunday.

Care Assistant requirements

To apply for this rewarding role, you will need to have a minimum of 3 months of 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 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.

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.
