Care Assistant - Children
We want carers like you to form part of our team!
As a Care Assistant in Plymouth and the surrounds, you'll be the person that brings smiles to the faces of the people in our care. You'll be assisting children in their own home covering waking night shifts for this position. 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 service users with personal care tasks, meal preparation, posture care, clinical requirements, feeding and PEG care, social activities and any other services needed. You'll work as part of a small team in the homes of our clients.
- A competitive pay package of £15.43 per hour, including holiday pay
- Take control of when you get paid with instant Flexi Pay
- Fixed hours on a rota basis
- Free training opportunities
- Access to virtual appointments with NHS registered GPs and mental health support
- Face to face and telephone counselling to help you when life gets tough
Our new HealthForceGo® feature Flexi Pay, gives you the opportunity to gain instant access to an advance of up to 50% of the value of your existing shifts even on weekends and bank holidays!
We're looking for people who have either professional care experience or have cared for a loved one. You'll need a valid certificate in Moving and Handling and the right to work in the UK. On top of experience, we expect all of our carers to be able to tell us of a time they have exhibited our core values of: positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness. You'll need to live by these values whenever you're at work. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement.
