Posted 19 March 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 Healthcare Assistants (HCA) working full or part time hours in a variety of exceptional nursing, residential and specialist care homes throughout the Southport and Merseyside region.

The Care Assistant Role:

Newcross relies on the commitment and dedication of our employees to make a difference in the lives of the individuals we care for.

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 will play an essential role in supporting the well-being and quality of life of each individual in your care. Daily tasks may include assisting with washing and dressing, meal times, personal care and assisting with activities as required.

You will be a permanent member of the healthcare team responsible for bringing the Newcross standard of care to every individual we care for. This is a flexible role and means you could be working for more than one home in the local area on a part time or full time basis, allowing the opportunity to tailor your rota to suit family and other commitments.

If you share our values of protecting dignity, promoting well-being and working in a person-centred manner at all times, this could be the job for you.
