London, Greater London, England
You’re a compassionate, can-do person with experience supporting older people. You’ve already got a Level 2 vocational qualification in Health and Social Care (either a diploma or NVQ). Now you’re ambitious to progress further. You’re good at using your initiative and working well under pressure. To you, it’s more than just a job. It’s a role where you happily go the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of older, frail people. In return, you get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK’s leading care home providers.
Residents are at the heart of everything we do. As part of a close-knit, friendly team, you’ll assist them with their physical and emotional needs. More than just a carer, you’ll be a true friend who champions their dignity and respects their independence. From day one, we’ll help you progress and take on more responsibility. For example, you’ll be involved in developing individual care plans and supporting new colleagues. To succeed, you’ll need to be able to think on your feet, prioritise your own workload and keep accurate records. We’ll give you ongoing support and quality training to build your career.
As a Care Assistant at Care UK, you can look forward to:
Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
Option to apply for Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship
Fast-track career options, e.g. into nursing or management roles
Quality training to develop your skills
Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts
25 days’ annual leave
Bank holiday enhancements
Thousands of online and in-store discounts
About Care UK
We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.
At our care home in West Drayton, we put our residents at the centre of everything we do and believe they should be free to see their friends and family whenever they want. Visitors can pop in to the home whenever they like, and we’ve also installed Skype on a computer so that residents can stay in touch with loved ones wherever they are in the world.
Our dedicated team regularly hold wonderful events for residents. Our 1950s cream tea afternoon went down a treat with residents. We paid tribute to the era with golden oldies sung by Martyn Halsey, as well as enjoying tea and cakes with friends and family and a visit from a local councillor.
