Job Description:

Do you enjoy seeing the older people in your care happy and fulfilled? Do you go out of your way to bring a smile to a resident’s face? 

We go out of our way to give the residents in our care homes the best care every day. So, when you join us, you’ll be looking after the day-to-day personal needs of residents while getting to know them individually – their life experiences, interests, what makes them smile. It’s how our dedicated teams deliver personalised care that’s right for each resident. 

We are growing fast. We’re one of the UK’s leading providers of health and social care services, and we’re opening brand new, purpose-built homes across the country right now. We’ve lots to bring a smile to your face, including local roles, flexible hours, the latest training, and opportunities to progress. 

So if you have the minimum of an NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care, experience of working with the elderly in a healthcare setting, and you’re committed to the highest standards in care we’d really like to hear from you. And our residents can’t wait to meet you.
