Newcross Healthcare are a national, established organisation that truly cares about you and your professional development. We have one mission: to deliver the highest standard of care to sick and vulnerable people. To do this, we invest in training opportunities to develop our teams of healthcare professionals.

Join Newcross for an exciting career in care where no two days are the same

As a Care Assistant in Maidstone, Aylesford, Bearsted and the surrounds, you'll be the person that brings smiles to the faces of the people in our care. This role is a chance to have real responsibility and enjoy the variety that each day brings. You'll be caring for our service users and ensuring that they receive assistance with personal care, making up beds, meal preparation, clinical needs, social activities and any other services needed.

We have additional opportunities available for local COVID 19 testing. The tasks that you'll be supporting with include setting up and overseeing testing sites for lateral flow testing but full training will also be provided.

What we require

You'll be an experienced carer with a minimum of 3 months of paid care experience, with a valid certificate in Moving and Handling, and the right to live and work in the UK. We also expect you to demonstrate our core values of trust, empathy and expertise on every shift. Passion and determination to bring comfort and joy to our service users is a must. You will need access to a smart device with an internet connection to pick up shifts and submit timesheets through our app, HealthForceGo. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement.

Flexi Pay!

Healthcare staff are able to choose when they get paid with Flexi Pay! All they need to do is submit their timesheets through our app and they'll be able to instantly withdraw up to 50% of the value of their existing shifts even on weekends and bank holidays.

Our benefits

  • An hourly rate of up to £12.94, including holiday pay
  • The option of instant pay - no need to wait for payday
  • Flexible shift patterns to choose from, including part-time or full-time hours, night and day shifts
  • Ongoing training opportunities to forge your own career path
  • Unlimited access to NHS-registered GPs via the Virtual GP app, and mental health support when you need it
