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

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.
