We recognise that our job descriptions are detailed and potentially daunting, but don’t be alarmed – we don’t expect you to know or have experience in everything – this is where we come in! We are looking for people who are motivated, enthusiastic, and passionate about improving people’s lives.
Every day we see people from all walks of life, from workers in sectors such as retail, hospitality, childcare (the list goes on), or people simply providing love and support to family members who have the skills, values and behaviours that would make an excellent care worker. You may not realise you have the potential to be a great care worker, but we do!
Please look at the job description, but as we say, we will help you develop into the role - we do not need you to be an expert now. The care assistant - night worker job role is currently being reviewed as part of our wider transformation journey, so we are initially offering a 12 month contract while this review takes place, with the possibility of making the job permanent once the review is completed.
We know that ensuring you feel valued, supported, upskilled and empowered is important to ensure you achieve your best. A happy and supported workforce is key to us meeting needs of residents. We have no doubt that simply doing a great job will continue to motivate and give you a sense of fulfilment, but in addition, we will provide you with all the tools and training you need to perform the role to the best of your ability.
We currently have vacancies for CCA’s in our night service, providing support to individuals in their own homes across North West and South West Surrey (Surrey Heath and Farnham, Guildford and Waverley, Spelthorne, Woking and Runnymede) between the hours of 9pm- 7am, 7 days a week; please contact us via email to discuss the shift patterns and hours.
At Surrey, our values and behaviours are just as important as our skills and abilities. They shape who we are as an organisation. Find out more about the values we follow.
