This is a flexible role and means you could be working for more than one home in the local area on a part time or full time basis, allowing the opportunity to tailor your rota to suit family and other commitments.

You will play an essential role in supporting the well-being and quality of life of each individual in your care. Personal care could include: dressing, washing, toileting and enabling service users to live their daily lives as they choose.

  • A NVQ2 / SVQ2 in Health and Social Care highly desirable yet not essential
  • A certificate confirming your participation in a practical moving and handling course in the last 12 months, or be willing to book onto a Newcross course
