Are you passionate, caring and hardworking?

Are you looking for a rewarding and secure job with excellent training and development?

Why not consider a career in care with Care UK. We’re looking for Care Assistants who can make a difference in our homes across the country.

New to care? No problem!

With your fantastic people skills, ability to adapt and multitask, you already have the core skills and values that are perfect for a career in care. We offer exceptional training and development programmes for all employees, to help you fulfil your potential.

What you’ll be doing

Being a Care Assistant doesn’t just mean helping residents to remain as active and independent as possible while respecting their rights of choice, privacy and dignity. It means having fun and laughter with them and using your skills to help them deal with day-to-day difficulties like personal care and meal times.

It involves working as part of a team to identify their unique goals and implement personalised care plans. And, it means working flexibly to help them explore new interests, engage in activities and make sure they enjoy themselves in a stimulating and homely environment. Put simply, it means making a difference.

What you’ll need

Experience of caring for others would be useful, including looking after an elderly relative or friend. More important though is your kind-hearted nature, your belief in teamwork and your ability to use your initiative and imagination, follow instructions and prioritise a busy workload.

You’ll be comfortable talking to, and working with, people from different professions, you’re great at keeping records too. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.

  • Earn whilst you learn and take on an apprenticeship
