We are recruiting Care Workers to help our residents lead dignified lives.

Working as part of a valued care team you’ll be ensuring our residents stay happy, healthy and well by helping them with everyday tasks such as washing and dressing, eating meals, taking medication and socialising.

Understanding the needs of older people, including those with dementia, is an important part of the work.

If you think you can make a positive difference to an older or disabled person’s life and would like a rewarding job with room for progression, we want to hear from you.

You don’t need previous experience as we’ll give you all the training and support that you will need to do the job. There’ll also be ongoing support and mentoring from experienced staff.

Working hours are based on a three-shift pattern and we offer good rates of pay and a good pension, free uniform, high quality training and many other benefits including a minimum of five weeks holiday and eight Bank Holidays a year (pro-rata), and extra pay for unsocial hours.

Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.
