We are recruiting a Care Worker to help our residents lead dignified lives. Working as part of a valued care team you will be ensuring our residents stay happy, healthy and well by helping them with everyday tasks such as washing, dressing, eating meals, taking medication and socialising.
Understanding the needs of older people, including those with dementia, is an important part of the work. If you think you can make a positive difference to an older or disabled person’s life and would like a rewarding job with room for progression, we would like to hear from you.
You don’t need previous experience as we will give you all the training and support that you will need to do the job. There will also be ongoing support and mentoring from experienced staff.
Please note that if you already work in another health and social care setting (e.g. another care home, home care provider or hospital ward) and intend to remain in that job, we will be unable to offer you a post with us at the moment. This is due to Public Health England guidance that advises care staff should not move between facilities due to the risk of transferring coronavirus.
Working hours are flexible based on a three-shift pattern and we offer good rates of pay and a good pension, free uniform, high quality training and many other benefits including a minimum of five weeks holiday and eight Bank Holidays a year (pro rata), and extra pay for unsocial hours.
Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.

The job may require unsocial hours working including weekends and Bank Holidays. Payment arrangements will be detailed in any contract offer made.
Saturday and Sunday hours will be paid at plain time where it is part of your normal working pattern unless it is between 7pm and 7am, where enhanced rates of pay apply. Enhanced pay rates are paid for Bank Holiday working.
