About the role

The role is based in Service Delivery, which is the provider arm of the Health, Wellbeing and Adult Social Care directorate. Service Delivery provides direct care to individuals living in their own homes and in-house residential establishments across the county. The service is registered with the Quality Care Commission (CQC) and works in accordance with good practice guidance and standards.

Are you looking for a job where no two days are the same? Do you want to come into work knowing you're able to make people feel empowered to be the best they can be?

We are hiring for care assistants; a role that allows not only you to make a difference to older people but also for them to make a positive impact on you. A great care assistant is someone who is kind, patient, open and respectful and with that in mind we appreciate that the best care assistants bring life experience and strong values to their everyday duties within the older people's homes.

Through building rapport and treating our residents with dignity and respect, you will be able to build strong relationships that will be centred on personal, practical, social and emotional care needs of residents. Day to day duties will involve excellent communication with residents and helping both them and their families when it comes to supportive living conversations – on other days you may even find yourself on a group day out to the seaside. It's all about ensuring the residents are living happy and healthy lives.

Does this sound like a career you'd be interested in? If so, we'd love to hear from you and your application should show:

  • An ability to be flexible and adaptable to meet the needs of our residents
  • Excellent communication and observational skills
  • Ability to work well as part of a team
  • A positive, friendly and proactive attitude
