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 Warrington and the Cheshire region, supported by our Chester branch.

The Care Assistant 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.

It is essential that you are dedicated to promoting the well-being and quality of life of each individual you care for.
