    Being a Care Assistant at Care UK
    Care Assistants at Care UK come from all walks of life. Some have worked in factories, supermarkets or schools. Some are returning to work after a break. Many have no, or minimal, experience, but are keen to explore a career in care, while many already have invaluable experience. What they all have in common is the right values. They’re adaptable, friendly, polite and caring. They enjoy working as a team with people from different cultures and backgrounds. And, they consider it a privilege to be trusted to look after others. Do you share their values? Then we could have just the role for you.

    What you’ll be doing
    Being a Care Assistant doesn’t just mean helping residents to remain as active and independent as possible while respecting their rights of choice, privacy and dignity. It means having fun and laughter with them and using your skills to help them deal with day-to-day difficulties like personal care and meal times. It also means working as part of a team to identify their unique goals and implement personalised care plans. And, it means working flexibly to help them explore new interests, engage in physical exercise and activities and make sure they enjoy themselves in a stimulating and homely environment. Put simply, it means making a difference. A real difference.

    What you’ll need
    Experience of caring for others would be useful, not necessarily in a paid role – you may have looked after an elderly relative or friend. More important though is your kind-hearted nature, your belief in teamwork and your ability to use your initiative and imagination, follow instructions and prioritise a busy workload. You’ll be comfortable talking to, and working with, people from different professions, you’re great at keeping records too. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.

    The benefits
    Opportunities to progress through our career paths into more senior and management roles
    • Earn whilst you learn and take on an apprenticeship
    • Quality bespoke training to develop your skills
    • Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts

    • Free DBS
    • Thousands of online and in-store discounts

  • Where you'll work
  • Clara Court is a modern and welcoming care home with a team that’s dedicated to providing personalised residential care.

    Our team offers specialist expertise in supporting individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. We get to know every resident as an individual, so that we can provide care that is truly tailored to their needs. Each resident has their own personalised care plan, as well as a life history book which helps us to understand and appreciate their lifetime experiences.

    The quality of care our teams provide and the very friendly and welcoming atmosphere of the home led us to win the Home of the Year Award in 2014 at the Care UK Residential Care Services annual awards. One of the judges said, “You’re made to feel truly welcome from the minute you walk through the door. The team provides care with a smile and treat every resident with respect and dignity.”

    We have a number of full time activity co-ordinators, so we’re able to offer residents a wide choice of stimulating and engaging activities, both within the home and in the local area. From gardening to pub lunches and summer outings to the coast, we aim to give residents fulfilling experiences every day, enabling them to continue enjoying lifelong hobbies and interests and even to take up something new.
