Care Assistant

Froxfield, Wiltshire

Job Description:

Care Assistant
£8.40 / £8.70 NVQ2

You make a difference, every day, that’s why we need you in our team.

You treat the people you care for as individuals, whether that’s through your experience of working as carer or because you’ve cared for an older relative or friend.  We’ll support you to provide care which is tailored to every person’s needs, in a home that feels like family, valuing the small things which are important to each resident.  We’d love you to be NVQ/QCF 2 qualified with experience of providing care but it’s your values that are more important to us.

We have a range of working hours available and work on a flexible roster basis which usually includes alternate weekends, however if you have other commitments then please talk to us about them as we can be flexible for the right person.

In return we offer a hourly rate of  £8.40 (£8.70 with NVQ2) enhanced rates for working Bank Holidays, 5.6 weeks annual leave (including Bank Holidays) increasing to 6 weeks with five years service.  In addition we provide full training and continuing personal development including the opportunity to undertake an NVQ/QCF, a free uniform, free DBS check, paid breaks and free meals when on duty.

We believe in supporting the people who work for us by providing access to an Employee Assistance Scheme which offers access to advice on all manner of issues as well as access to telephone and face-to-face counselling.

If you believe in treating people as individuals and are passionate about providing care with dignity and respect, then we would love to hear from you.
