Care Assistant - Bank
Our Care Assistants are probably the most vital members of our team. This is an incredibly special role - it is a privilege to be so involved in the lives of the people we support.
As a Carer, you will be involved in supporting the daily activities of our residents in a person-centred manner; promoting their dignity, independence and well-being, and becoming an integral part of their lives.
No experience is necessary as you will be fully trained. However, while we can teach you most things, we cannot teach you compassion, and so this is the one essential requirement for this role. Our Carers are dedicated, have a genuine interest in the people for whom they care, and - above all – are naturally kind and warm-hearted.
At Barchester you’ll have the opportunity to develop your career through our vocational training opportunities to ensure you feel confident in all aspects of your role. We will look after you, so that you can take the best possible care of the folk whom we support. And there is no limit to how far you can go – many of our Carers take advantageous of our career development opportunities, and several have gone on to progress into management.
Please note: this is a BANK position to provide cover as and when required; eg for planned absence such as annual leave, or unplanned absence such as sick leave. The hours and days will vary accordingly.
If you have the unique qualities required for this exciting role and want to work with an organisation that provides the type of care you’d expect for your loved ones, we would welcome your application.
From 01st April, Barchester Healthcare adhere to the new legal requirements of the National Living Wage.
Please note; depending on application numbers we sometimes need to close or extend the closing dates for positions, we would therefore recommend and early application.
