We are looking to recruit Care Assistants who can demonstrate compassion and empathy in their approach to caring for older people, either through previous roles in social care or in other roles.

Ideally, some experience in a similar role within the care, health or social care setting, although this is not as essential as your genuine desire to develop a career in this field. 

A relevant NVQ Level 2 qualification or equivalent is a requirement of the job role.

Excellent communication skills and the ability to work well as part of a dedicated team.  A compassionate, can-do person with experience supporting older people.  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 people.  A belief in giving your personal best at all times
