As a Care Assistant in Taunton, Bridgwater and the surrounding areas, you'll be the person that brings smiles to the faces of the children in our care. This role is a chance to make a real difference in people's lives - without your support, they may live a life constrained to specialist units or hospitals.

What you'll need

You'll be an empathetic and compassionate caregiver with at least 3 months of experience caring professionally or for a loved one. You'll be comfortable assisting clients with limited mobility and hold a valid Moving and Handling certificate. You'll be fuelled by your desire to make a real difference in the lives of people in need. You must have the right to work in the UK. Access to your own vehicle is desirable but not required.
