Job Description

Based on a 40 hour per week contract we are able to offer an annual salary of £16,640 We are holding a recruitment open day on the 4th of October at our Garth House Nursing Home at the address below. I have also included the job spec for a care assistant role. If you are interested in coming along to the open day please apply and we will call you back! Tower Hill Road Dorking Surrey RH4 2AY The Healthcare Assistant Role Working as a Care Assistant within our team, it's not just our resident's health needs you'll help meet. You'll also help them to get more out of life - to be more independent, to enjoy a wider range of activities, and, above all, to have more choice in their day to day life. Working closely with your Team Leader and our nurses, you'll lend a hand with everything from helping someone get ready for an eagerly anticipated family visit, to supporting someone who's trying to build up their mobility. Whether you're assisting a nurse, getting involved with a daily activity, filling in vital paperwork or lending someone a hand to eat their lunch, you'll make all the residents you care for feel safe, comfortable and secure. In other words, you'll make them feel right at home. But why join our team? We couldn't achieve what we do without our amazing teams. We believe in our people and want to ensure you feel appreciated and supported at every step of your journey with us. For this reason, we offer an excellent range of benefits as listed below. * Great rates of pay - We regularly review regional and competitor pay rates to ensure we're offering the best incentives to work with us * One place of work - We operate residential/supported living services, meaning you'll not need to worry about travelling from location to location. * Flexible hours - enabling you to balance work and home life. * Voluntary Benefits Package - offering amazing retail discounts at over 8,000 locations nationwide, enabling our staff to make savings of up to £1,500 per year * Personalised career path ladders including support with your Care Certificate to ensure fulfilling career development * Learning and Development programme with full induction training including buddy system * Childcare vouchers * Employee Assistance Programme - Immediate access to a confidential telephone counselling and legal information service which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year * Online Health Portal - All colleagues have access to the online health portal which enables you to make the most of full access to an encyclopedia of health information * Refer a Friend Scheme - get up to £150 for referring a carer and £500 for referring a nurse to us The skills you'll need To join us, you won't necessarily need to have experience working with older people in residential care (although this would be ideal). You will need to be flexible, patient, caring, organised and great with people. In fact, you'll build strong relationships with all those around you, making sure family and friends feel welcomed, that health care professionals are kept well-informed, and that you're keeping your Line Manager up to speed with residents' needs and progress. A team player, you can follow guidelines and policies easily, and will have good written skills, as you will need to write up care plans. If you don't have it already, you'll need to be willing to work towards your QCF 1-5 (NVQ 2 or 3 in Care). You'll also need to be flexible to work shifts on a rota basis.
