Newcross Healthcare is a national, established organisation that truly believes in the importance of person-centred care. We're recruiting for dedicated Care Assistants to deliver care in the home for individuals in Hereford, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye and the surrounds. This is a unique opportunity to become part of a small team, working on a package of care and building positive relationships with the service user and their family.

Are you ready for a new care experience?

As a Care Assistant in Hereford, Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye and the surrounds, 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.

Your duties will vary, including anything from assisting residents with their food and drink, following care plans and getting them involved in social activities. You'll work as part of a small team in the homes of our clients.

Flexi Pay!

With Flexi Pay, our healthcare staff have the exclusive opportunity to instantly access an advance of up to 50% of the value of their existing shifts even on weekends and bank holidays.

Advantages

  • An hourly rate of up to £16.79, including holiday pay
  • Never wait for payday again with instant Flexi Pay
  • Fixed hours on a rota basis
  • Free, ongoing clinical training
  • Access to NHS registered GPs via a Virtual GP app and mental health support

Essential skills

To apply for this rewarding role, you will need to have a minimum of 3 months of prior 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'll need to be an approachable and understanding people person, ready to become a key part of your service users' support network. 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. Access to your own vehicle is desirable but not required, as is the right to work in the UK.

It is essential you have a driving licence due to the rural locations where our service users reside and the need to transport them.

Apply today and you can start within a week!
