As a Care Assistant in Colchester, Mersea Island, East Mersea and the surrounds, you'll reap the rewards of assisting vulnerable people to live their lives in a dignified way. Your duties will vary, but the ultimate aim will be to ensure that the people in your care are safe, comfortable and happy.

Who are you?

To join us as a Care Assistant, you'll need over three months' experience in a similar care role. Ideally, you'll have a valid certificate in Moving and Handling, but if not, we can help you catch up through eLearning. You must have the right to work in the UK, and access to your own vehicle would be beneficial.

You'll be a real people person, able to build lasting relationships with service users, their family and your healthcare team. You'll need a minimum of 3 months of caregiving experience and be armed with evidence of situations in which you've displayed our company values of trust, empathy and expertise. The right to work in the UK is also a requirement.

This is a great chance for you to improve your skill set with a range of free training programmes available, all provided by Newcross earned through credits as you work. This could include Basic Life Support, BSL or Makaton, Medication Administration, Dementia Care and many more.

With Newcross you could also have the opportunity to study towards a range of National vocational qualifications NVQ/SVQ.
