We're actively seeking Care Assistants to join our team in Taunton, encouraging our service users to live a rich, independent life. This is a unique opportunity to work as part of a team on specific care packages on a regular basis. Whether you have some professional care experience, or have cared for a loved one or friend, we want to hear from you.

We are looking for carers like you!

As a Care Assistant in Taunton, you'll play a vital role in safeguarding and supporting the vulnerable people in your local community during these unprecedented times. You'll be supporting with personal care tasks, meal preparation, posture care, clinical needs, social activities and any other services needed.

Complex care roles with Newcross provide you with a unique chance to take on new responsibilities and receive specialist clinical training areas such as PEG feeding and tracheostomy care. You'll also get access to free virtual training opportunities and apprenticeships to take your career in whichever direction you want to go.

Person specification

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.
