If you're passionate and caring and looking for a rewarding job that comes with excellent training and great opportunities for personal development, join Care UK as a Care Assistant and make a real difference.

 

Being a Care Assistant at Care UK

Care Assistants at Care UK come from all walks of life. Some have worked in factories, supermarkets or schools. Some are returning to work after a break. Many have no, or minimal, experience, but are keen to explore a career in care, while many already have invaluable experience. What they all have in common is the right values. They’re adaptable, friendly, polite and caring. They enjoy working as a team with people from different cultures and backgrounds. And, they consider it a privilege to be trusted to look after others. Do you share their values? Then we could have just the role for you.

 

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 also means 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 physical exercise and activities and make sure they enjoy themselves in a stimulating and homely environment. Put simply, it means making a difference. A real difference.

 

What you’ll need

Experience of caring for others would be useful, not necessarily in a paid role – you may have looked 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.
