Care Assistant

Posted 9 October by Newcross Healthcare Ended

Newcross Healthcare has been providing excellent quality care staff to nursing homes, hospitals and people in their own homes for over 21 years. We pride ourselves on employing only the very best, experienced care staff and ensuring our clients receive the highest quality person-centred care.

We are currently seeking experienced Healthcare Assistants to join our Truro team, working in the Newquay and Wadebridge area.

The Role:

Working as a Newcross carer means you'll be working to improve and support the quality of life and well-being of individuals you encounter.

You will promote service users independence and protect their dignity through a kind and compassionate approach to personal care.

This could involve a range of tasks such as assisting with washing, dressing, toileting, meal times, accessing the community and other general activities that enable clients to receive an excellent standard of care.

Unlike an agency, we focus on nurturing and rewarding great members of staff. We offer permanent jobs with all the flexibility to maintain a great work / life balance. Enjoy a permanent contract, guaranteed hours and free training with us.

In order to ensure you always have enough work, you should be willing to travel around the local surrounding areas. Due to rural client locations and shift times, public transport is not always readily available, therefore access to your own vehicle is desirable, but not essential.

The Benefits:
  • Salary of up to £13.66/hr, paid weekly including holiday pay
  • Permanent, flexible hours contract
  • Free uniform and criminal record check (DBS) (For a limited time!)
  • Agreed mileage payments for most clients
  • Training available free through credits earned as you work
  • 24 hour support through dedicated central team
  • Local line manager and branch support
  • Online Intranet and smartphone app to manage your availability and bookings
  • Recommend a Friend scheme, paying up to £500 per successful referral
Why Should you Apply?

As a nurse or care employee of Newcross, expect job satisfaction that goes beyond other nursing agencies. Our nursing and care assistant jobs come with peace-of-mind as our staff are employed on a permanent basis and with the flexibility to choose your own hours, you can have the work-life balance to suits you.
