**Care Assistant for Days & Nights**

*Experienced carers*

YOU

You’re a compassionate, can-do person with wanting to gain experience supporting older people. 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.

Your role

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
  • Bank holiday enhancements
  • Stakeholder pension
  • Free uniform
  • 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.
  • Where you'll work
  • Cavell Court, located in the heart of Cringleford, is a new purpose-built care home that opened in July 2015.

    Cavell Court is an 80-bed care home in Cringleford, just a few miles from Norwich. The home provides a range of round-the-clock care services and every aspect of the home is designed to ensure that residents continue to enjoy a fulfilling life.

    Residents keep busy and active, whether that means continuing to do lifelong hobbies, or discovering new interests. Our specialist lifestyle team gets to know each resident, their passions and pet-hates, hobbies and life stories before designing an activity plan tailored to your loved one’s unique needs.

    All of the Cavell Court care home team understand that the process of choosing residential care for a loved one is an emotional process. We’re here to make things as easy as possible, supporting you from the first time you look around Cavell Court through to your loved one moving in, and throughout the time they’re with us.

  • 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.
