Job description

At Newcross Healthcare, we believe everyone deserves the right to receive care in their own home

Join Newcross Healthcare as a Care Assistant in the Lincoln area where you will join a small health and social care team delivering 1:1 and 2:1 care to vulnerable service users. Your responsibilities as a Care Assistant will vary, including assisting with personal care tasks, medication administration, moving and handling, epilepsy management, PEG care, emergency medication administration, continence support, accessing the community and helping out with household duties. Specialist training will be provided.

Minimum shift time of 6 hours in one location.

Your benefits package

  • An hourly rate of up to £17.00, including holiday pay
  • Get paid as soon as you finish a shift with Flexi Pay
  • Fixed hours on a rota basis
  • Free, ongoing clinical training
  • Access to Newcross World, our app-based training platform
  • Access to NHS registered GPs via a Virtual GP app and mental health support

Flexi Pay!

Be in control of when you get paid with Flexi Pay! This exclusive perk allows you to instantly access up to 50% of the value of your completed shifts, even on weekends and bank holidays. Available through our app, HealthForceGo.

Care Assistant requirements

To apply for this rewarding complex care 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 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.

Although the locations are specified, we cannot guarantee all work in one area so travel may be 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.
