Healthcare Assistant Job in Ipswich – Free DBS & uniform

We are growing our team of Healthcare Assistants in Ipswich and the surrounding areas as part of our Ipswich branch team.

As a naturally compassionate person, you will play an essential part in delivering great quality, person-centred care to every individual you encounter. This means recognising the capabilities of the person, promoting their dignity at all times and seeing them as more than just a care plan.

Newcross Healthcare is a trusted organisation that has been providing excellent quality care to clients in nursing homes, hospitals and people in their own homes for over 20 years. With proven results through our in-house training, you will also benefit from the support of a local line manager and the expertise of our Clinical Excellence team.

For a limited time only, we’ll also welcome you with a free DBS check and uniform when you join our team.

If you’re looking for flexible day, night or weekend shifts and the chance to choose your own rota with the added support of a permanent contract, guaranteed hours and a local line manager, this is the job for you!

Working in a Healthcare Assistant job with Newcross, we can offer you:

  • Excellent hourly rate to be discussed at interview
  • Weekly pay including holiday pay
  • Free uniform upon joining (limited time offer!)
  • Free criminal record check (DBS) for a limited time
  • Free training through credits earned as you work
  • Agreed mileage payments for most clients
  • Online account area and smartphone app to manage your availability, bookings and payslips
  • 24-hour support contact centre, open 365 days a year
  • Local line manager and national Clinical Excellence Team support
  • Recommend a Friend scheme paying up to £500 per successful referral

Our clients are located in several different areas throughout Ipswich and Suffolk, so you should be willing to travel locally to these different locations. Therefore, in some instances, your own transport is essential.

  • To prove your right to live and work in the UK
  • At least 3 months’ previous paid experience working in a care environment in the UK within the last 3 years
  • Referee contact details for your current place of work, including a manager who can comment on your clinical ability, and for all employments in the past 18 months or your 3 most recent jobs
