Job description

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of individuals with complex healthcare needs?

As a Support Worker in Swindon, you’ll be the person that brings smiles to the faces of the people in our care. 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.

In this role, you'll join a small health and social care team working in the homes of our service users. Your various duties will include following care plans, assisting with personal care, eating, dressing and providing wider emotional and social support.

Shift patterns: day shifts - 9:30am-19:00 / 8am-8pm and night shifts - 22:00-7am / 8pm-8am.

About you

We look for Support Workers with at least 3 months of professional care experience or having cared for a loved one. You’ll need to feel comfortable helping service users with limited mobility. If you do not have a current Moving and Handling certificate, we will support you with training during your induction period. The right to work in the UK is a must-have. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement.

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.

Why join Newcross?

  • An hourly rate of up to £17.62, including holiday pay
  • The ability to get paid instantly
  • Fixed hours on a rota basis
  • An immersive learning experience through Newcross World, where you can manage your skills, learn new ones and unlock new opportunities in different care settings
  • Access to appointments with NHS-registered GPs through a Virtual GP app
  • Face to face and telephone counselling to help you when life gets tough
  • Free DBS and uniform
