We are looking for fantastic Care Assistants to join our friendly team in the Lincoln area to provide Care, Companionship and Home Help to older adults living in the local community. Our Care Assistants will support our lovely clients in the LN6 area of Lincoln (Doddington, Skellingthorpe, Boultham, Hykeham, Birchwood and Hartsholme and surrounding areas).

You will need to travel around the local area between calls, so a full UK driving licence and access to your own vehicle is essential.

With a fantastic ethos and dedicated team, passion for quality support is cascaded throughout our organisation. Every one of our team puts the person first and shares our values. Our Care Assistants make a difference every day to the people they support, and it’s an amazing feeling. You could share that feeling too. Their duties can include:

  • Personal care – toileting, bathing, oral care, dressing, assisting with medication;
  • Practical tasks – making beds, shopping, preparing meals, some domestic tasks;
  • Emotional and social support – befriending, companionship.

Pay rates, benefits and hours

  • £8.35 - £8.75 per hour;
  • Full and part time hours available – flexible working hours and variety of shifts, including mornings, evenings and weekends (preferred hours can be discussed further at interview);
  • 28 days paid annual leave (pro rata) and paid mileage;
