Care Assistant - Personal Home Carer
At Newcross, we're transforming home care across the UK. Be a part of it.
As a Care Assistant in Barnstaple, Tiverton, Bideford, Bude and the surrounds, you'll reap the rewards of enabling people to live every day to its fullest potential. You'll be responsible for assisting our service users with personal care tasks, medication administration, meal preparation, posture care, social activities and any other services required. You'll work harmoniously as part of a team of health and social care workers to provide vital care to vulnerable people in your area.
To apply for this rewarding role, you will need to have a minimum of 3 months of prior experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one. This will ensure you have an emotional and clinical understanding of what it takes to deliver home care.
You'll need to be an approachable and understanding people person, ready to become a key part of your service users' support network. You may need to assist clients with limited mobility, however, if you do not have a valid Moving and Handling certificate, we can provide relevant training modules for you to complete in the induction process. Access to your own vehicle is desirable but not required, as is the right to work in the UK.
