Looking for your next exciting challenge?

Newcross Healthcare are on the look-out for experienced Support Workers to join a Substance Misuse project and support homeless adults in Cardiff and the surrounding locations. We're a forward-thinking, independent healthcare organisation, operating on a national scale. We have one mission: to deliver the highest standard of care to sick and vulnerable people.

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

Newcross Healthcare are hiring seasoned Support Workers to join a Substance Misuse project and support homeless adults in Cardiff, Pontypridd, Pontypool, Newport, Cwmbran, Caerphilly and the surrounds.

This position requires you to provide high quality support to homeless women and men who are former substance users and long-term street drinkers. You assist in helping and encouraging them to face housing and/or personal difficulties, promoting their independence and maintaining their dignity.

To be successful in the role, you will be a committed individual with previous experience supporting homeless people and the ability to help them to access and maintain accommodation, building their confidence and assisting them to achieve their preferred outcomes.

The role involves you to work Monday to Friday shifts (8:30am - 4:30 pm) coordinating a case load of around 20 service users. We also offer the option to work rolling rotas which include days, nights and weekends.

Could you be our next care-giving hero?

You'll already have a minimum of 3 months experience under your belt and hold a valid Moving and Handling certificate. The right to work in the UK is a must. As well as excellence in care, we also need you to demonstrate our core values of trust, empathy and expertise on every shift.

Got what it takes? Joining Newcross has many benefits. You'll be working for one of the UK's leading independent healthcare providers and joining a supportive community of like-minded individuals who live and breathe helping others.

Your benefits package

Working for Newcross gives you a fantastic array of exclusive benefits, including:

  • An hourly rate of up to £15.21, including holiday pay
  • Same day pay with Flexi Pay
  • A range of flexible shifts to choose from including part-time, full-time, day and night shifts
  • Free training opportunities
  • Access to appointments with NHS-registered GPs through a Virtual GP app
  • Face to face and telephone counselling to help you when life gets tough.

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 mandatory.

If you think variety is the spice of life and enjoy building great relationships with colleagues and service users, then a career in care at Newcross would suit you. Apply today.
