Job description

At Newcross, we’re leading the revolution in personalised home care. Join us!

We’re actively seeking an experienced Care Assistant to join our team in Lincoln and the surrounding areas. In this role, you’ll work as part of a close-knit, collaborative health and social care team, delivering care in the home. You’ll follow each individual’s care plan, playing a key role in supporting them with daily tasks such as personal care, clinical requirements, social activities, feeding and PEG care and any additional services required. You’ll receive specialist training, tailored to the package of care you’re assigned to.

Morning and afternoon shift patterns are available during term times. Additional flexibility is required during the school holidays.

Skills and experience

To apply for this rewarding role, you will need to have a minimum of 3 months 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. The right to work in the UK is essential.

This role requires you to have a driving 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.
