At Newcross Healthcare, we believe that everyone deserves to receive the highest standard of care in their own home.

Person specification

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.

Applicants will need to have a driving licence for this position due the rural locations of our service users and the need to transport them.

Apply now and you can start within a week!
