Job description

Is building meaningful and lasting relationships with the people you care for important to you?

As a Care Assistant in Norwich, Horsford, Rackheath and the surrounding areas, you’ll be the person that brings smiles to the faces of the people in our care. You will join a supportive health and social care team working in the homes of service users living with complex healthcare conditions. Your duties will vary, including assisting with personal care tasks, feeding and PEG care, clinical needs, social activities and any additional services required. This role is a chance to make a real difference to people’s lives - without your support, they may live a life constrained to specialist units or hospitals.

You'll be required to work evenings/weekends as part of a structured rota.

We also ask for...

You’ll be an empathetic and compassionate caregiver, with at least 3 months of experience caring professionally or for a loved one. You’ll be comfortable assisting clients with limited mobility and will hold a valid Moving and Handling certificate. You’ll be fuelled by your desire to make a real difference in the lives of people in need. Access to your own vehicle is desirable but not required. 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.
