As a Care Assistant in Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage and the surrounds, you’ll play a vital role in safeguarding and supporting the vulnerable people in your local community during these unprecedented times. You'll join a supportive team of health and social care professionals, working in the homes of our service users living with Epilepsy and other complex healthcare needs.
Complex care roles with Newcross provide you with a unique chance to take on new responsibilities and receive specialist clinical training in areas such as PEG feeding and tracheostomy care.
Shift patterns: evenings, 2 waking night shifts (2am to 6am) and a weekend day shift (6am to 6:30am).
We require all complex care workers to have around 3 months of experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one. You’ll need to be a real people person and always be willing to go the extra mile to ensure the best possible outcomes are met. You’ll need to be happy assisting clients who may have 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. The right to work in the UK is required.
