    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
    • Bank holiday enhancements
    • Free uniform
    • Free DBS
    • Thousands of online and in-store discounts
  • Where you'll work
  • Our ambitious growth plans saw us open another brand new care home in Sidcup in early 2019. Smyth Lodge provides you with a great opportunity to join a company who genuinely care about your development, providing the opportunities for you to progress. Set out across three floors our home will provide a fantastic environment for you to be able to deliver engaging and person centred care. We truly believe in encouraging our residents to be as independent as possible, whether they’re going to our cinema room to see the latest film, participating in our daily activity programme or having a catch up in our coffee shop with their friends and loved ones there is always plenty going on. As an award winning company we are looking for like-minded, passionate colleagues to join us in making our multi-million pound home a success.

Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
