Job description

People often have the wrong perception of what job Care Assistants do. All their clients’ needs vary, from assisting with personal care, providing companionship, helping with domestic duties & preparing meals, to helping with medication or taking them out to continue doing the things that they love. If you also think about everything you do daily, you would be supporting someone to do the same. The feeling you get from knowing you have helped someone is a feeling like no other.

This sounds great, what are the requirements?

No experience is required as full training is provided. A lot of their Care Assistants come from all backgrounds, some have personal experience of caring for a loved one and found it rewarding, some worked in a completely different sector but wanted to do something much more rewarding and this was perfect for them. What matters most is that you are kind, empathetic, you want to make a difference and you share their values. However, it is essential that you are car driver and have access to a vehicle due to the nature of the role.
