We need Community Care Assistant who want to make a difference, especially during the “Stay Alert” phase of Social Isolating in the Bracknell area of Berkshire. No experience is required as many of their staff have not worked in care before. Above all, you need an honest, reliable attitude and desire to help.

Who would I be working for?

The provider has over 50-years’ experience in the care sector and understand the importance of providing high quality, person centred care to older adults living in their own homes. Sometimes it is the little acts of kindness that make the biggest difference to a person’s life.

  • Brushing their teeth and hair.
  • Keeping an eye on their mental health, being a good companion to give the family peace of mind.
  • Helping with their shopping or collecting a prescription.
  • Helping with meal preparation.
  • Reminding them when they need to take their medication or about doctor’s appointments.

Pay rates, hours & benefits

  • £9.78 - £10.13 per hour which will go up as you become more qualified.
  • Flexible hours to suit you- full time, part time, bank hours, and weekend hours all available.
  • Support towards your QFC/NVQ level 2 & 3 in care.
  • 30p per mile mileage allowance- and we’ll always try to make sure you’re not traveling far from your home.
  • The biggest benefit is joining a homecare team with an ethos of kindness and dedication, and knowing you are making a difference every day.
