We are currently seeking professional Care Assistants that are passionate about delivering a high-quality standard of care that enables them to support a range of clients within a wide range of establishments in Seven Oaks and the surrounding areas of Tonbridge.

Role:

If you are a professional and compassionate individual that is able to commit to delivering a high standard of care to our clients, we want to hear from you.

We prefer drivers for this role, however opportunities are available for individuals that have access to public transport between 07:00 and 22:30.

It is essential that you are committed to improving the quality of life and well-being of each individual you care for. This means recognising the abilities of each person and champion their needs.

Daily tasks may include aiding with meal times, washing and dressing and personal care.

Take advantage of flexible, agency-style working that fits around your needs but gives you all the benefits of a permanent contract, free training (earned through credits whilst you work) whilst also providing the security of guaranteed hours.

Benefits:
  • Salary of up to £11.30/hr, paid weekly including holiday pay
  • Free uniform & training through credits that are earned as you work
  • Permanent and flexible hours contract
  • Mileage payments are agreed for most clients

  • A 24-hour support contact centre, that is open 365 days a year
Why Apply?

At Newcross we hire permanent staff, that we help to develop by providing them with a catalogue of over 200 training courses to choose from. Stability is very important for us and is the reason why we hire permanent staff and why we have never been a 'zero hours' employer. This is why provide a minimum hours guarantee within our contracts.

Requirements

  • A minimum of 3 months paid experience within a care environment in the last 3 years
  • At least 3 months of previous paid experience working in a care environment in the UK within the last 3 years
