Care Assistant

Posted 19 February by Newcross Healthcare Ended

Newcross Healthcare prides itself on delivering high standards of care to our services to our service users in a range of settings from hospitals to care homes and nursing homes through the UK. We are currently looking to recruit Care Assistants (HCA) to work within the Nuneaton and Bedworth areas of the West Midlands, supported through our Coventry branch.

The Job Role

Every Newcross Care Assistant makes a difference in the lives of the patients they encounter, through their compassionate and sensitive approach, but also their ability to deliver the highest quality person-centred care.

It is essential that you are dedicated to promoting the well-being and quality of life of each individual you care for. This means recognising the capabilities of each person, championing their needs and seeing them as more than a care plan. You could be involved in a range of day to day activities such as washing, dressing, toileting, meal times and other general activities that enable service users to live their daily lives as they choose.

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.

Due to rural client locations and shift times, public transport is not always readily available, therefore access to your own vehicle is desirable.

Perks of Working for Newcross
  • Salary of up to £11.96/hr, paid weekly including holiday pay
  • Free uniform & training through credits earned as you work
  • Agreed mileage payments for most clients
  • Criminal record check (DBS) cost refunded after initial period
  • Online area and smartphone app to manage your availability, bookings and payslips
  • 24-hour support contact centre, open 365 days a year

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

The Branch

Our Coventry branch is based in the Cobalt Centre on Middlemarch Business Park near the Airport.

We cover a wide range of areas in the West Midlands such as Solihull, Nuneaton, Rugby and Stratford-upon-Avon.

All of our healthcare professionals have minimum hours guaranteed in their contracts, giving them the security of a steady income, with the flexibility to choose your own hours, you can have the work-life balance to suits you.

You must have
  • The right to live and work in the UK
  • At least 3 months previous paid experience working in a care or nursing home in the UK within the last 3 years
  • Referee contact details for your current place of work, including a manager who can comment on your clinical ability, and for all employments in the past 18 months or your 3 most recent jobs
