Providing care and support to those in need
Newcross Healthcare are actively seeking dedicated Support Workers to provide expert care to our services users with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour in Cirenester, Stroud, Dursley and the surrounding locations. Your duties will be varied, including social integration activities and assistance with daily tasks like eating.
This role provides you with a unique chance to really grow in your career, take on new responsibilities and enjoy the new relationships that you build each day. Working for Newcross is an opportunity to become part of a supportive community, supported by like minded individuals.
You'll be an empathetic and compassionate caregiver, with a minimum of 3 months of experience, a valid certificate in Moving and Handling, and the right to live and work in the UK.
