Newcross Healthcare is seeking experienced Care Assistants to cover waking night shifts caring for children with complex care needs in Plymouth and the surrounding areas. In this role, you'll work as part of a close-knit, collaborative team, delivering care in the home. Without support from people like you, these individuals may live a life in specialist units or hospitals, rather than in their own home.
You will be supporting with personal care, medication support, meal preparation, posture care, social activities and any additional services needed to allow them to live as independently as possible. You'll be introduced to a range of service users with complex needs and will be assisting individuals in their daily lives.
With experience of caring professionally or for a loved one under your belt, and with a valid certificate in Moving and Handling, and the right to live and work in the UK. We also expect you to demonstrate our core values of positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness on every shift. Passion and determination to bring comfort and joy to our service users is a must. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement.
Your benefits package
Working for Newcross gives you a fantastic array of exclusive benefits, including:
* An hourly rate of up to £15.43, including holiday pay
* Same day pay with Flexi Pay
* Fixed hours on a rota basis
* Free training opportunities
* Access to appointments with NHS-registered GPs through a Virtual GP app
* Face to face and telephone counselling to help you when life gets tough.
What is Flexi Pay?
Would you like to be in control of when you get paid? With the new Flexi Pay feature of our app you're able to digitally sign your timesheets and be paid up to 50% of the value of your shift the very same day (includes weekends and bank holidays).
If you think variety is the spice of life and enjoy building great relationships with colleagues and service users, then a career in care at Newcross would suit you. Apply today.
