Newcross Healthcare is a national, established organisation that truly believes in the importance of person-centred care. We're recruiting for professional Care Assistants to deliver care in the home for individuals in Chard, Crewkerne, Ilminster 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.

At Newcross, it's our mission to enable vulnerable people to receive care in their own home

As a Care Assistant in Chard, Crewkerne, Ilminster and the surrounds, you'll be well-practiced at multitasking and enjoy the variety of tasks that come with delivering care in the home. You'll be aiding with personal care tasks, meal preparation, clinical needs, posture care, feeding and PEG care, social activities and any other services needed. This role provides you with a unique chance to really grow in your career, take on new responsibilities and enjoy the lasting relationships that build with service users and their support networks. With your help, the people in your care can continue living in their own home, rather than living away from their loved ones in a specialist unit.

Flexi Pay!

With Flexi Pay, you are able to gain instant access to an advance of up to 50% of the value of your existing shifts even on weekends and bank holidays.

Role specification

With at least 3 months of professional experience, or experience of caring for a loved one, you'll be well-placed to apply. You'll need a valid Moving and Handling certificate and feel comfortable helping service users with limited mobility. The right to work in the UK is a requirement. In addition to your caregiving experience, you should be able to demonstrate occasions where you have exhibited our core values of positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness. We'll expect you to uphold these values when on shift. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement.

Benefits will include

  • Salary of up to £13.77/hr, including holiday pay
  • Get paid instantly with Flexi Pay
  • Fixed hours on a rota basis
  • Free, ongoing clinical training
  • Access to NHS registered GPs and mental health support with virtual appointments
