Care Assistant

Posted 20 November by Newcross Healthcare Ended

Do you want to be part of a successful expanding team with a company that values your professional worth? We have several flexible vacancies for experienced Care Assistants (HCA) working full or part time hours in a variety of exceptional nursing, residential and specialist care homes throughout Ayr and wider South Ayrshire region.

The Carer Role

Working as a Newcross Care Assistant means you will be involved in ensuring each resident receives an excellent standard of care that meets their personal care plan. Personal care could include: dressing, washing, toileting and enabling service users to live their daily lives as they choose. You will play an essential role in enabling residents to live fulfilling lives, partaking in their favourite activities and interacting with their families, visitors and other residents.

You must have a compassionate approach and be confident in your ability to provide life-enhancing care that protects the dignity of the client and is in line with their personalised care plan.

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 the number of shifts you require, you should be willing to travel around the local surrounding areas, therefore access to your own vehicle or public transport is desirable.

Benefits
  • Salary of up to £11.86/hr paid weekly including holiday pay
  • Permanent, flexible hours contract
  • Free uniform & training through credits earned as you work
  • Agreed mileage payments for most clients
  • Criminal record check (PVG) cost refunded after initial period
  • Online area and smartphone app to manage your availability, bookings and payslips
  • Recommend a friend scheme, paying up to £500 per successful referral
  • One-to-one relationship with a local line manager
  • 24 hour support through dedicated central team, 365 days a year

We take pride in the quality of our care, so we're looking for experienced individuals with a genuine, caring approach as well as the skills to deliver person-centred care.

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.

Requirements

You will need to have the right to live and work in the UK, at least 3 months previous paid care experience in the UK and suitable referee contact details to apply for this vacancy. You will also need a valid certificate confirming your participation in a practical moving and handling course, or be willing to book onto a Newcross course. You will need to be SSSC registered or commit to registering when you join.

If you have an SVQ2 or equivalent in Health and Social Care, or currently work in a care assistant job, you could be fast tracked through our recruitment process.
