Job description

At Newcross Healthcare, we’re leading the revolution in personalised home care. Join us as a Support Worker.

Joining Newcross as a Support Worker in the Abbeymead area of Gloucester, you’ll take the variety and challenges that every day brings in your stride, with a positive mental attitude and brilliant sense of humour. This role involves caring for a young child living with epilepsy within their own home. You will join a small health and social care team to assist with personal care needs, getting them ready for school, making them breakfast and tea and helping out with day-to-day living tasks.

This role involves four-hour shift patterns (morning and afternoon): Monday to Friday from 6am to 10am and then from 17:00pm to 21:00pm.

To join our complex care team you'll need:

  • At least 3 months of experience caring professionally or for a loved one
  • A valid Moving and Handling certificate
  • The right to work in the UK
  • Access to your own vehicle is desirable but not essential

Ultimately, we are looking for people with the right attitude. To join us, you will need to be an excellent team player with great people skills and have a true desire to help make a difference in the lives of vulnerable individuals.

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.
