Job description

Looking to make a difference? Become a Care Assistant today!

We’re actively seeking an experienced Female Care Assistant to join our team in Colchester, Sudbury and the surrounding areas, encouraging our service users to live a rich, independent life. In this role, you’ll work as part of a close-knit team of health and social care professionals, 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 getting ready for bed, ready for school, re-positioning, exercise during the night and a low level of personal care support.

This position involves waking night shifts for three nights per week.

Does this sound like you?

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. Access to your own vehicle is desirable, and the right to work in the UK is 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.
