Healthcare Assistant Jobs in Langport & Surrounding Areas

Joining our Taunton team, you will be offering care to a range of clients in the Langport area, with opportunities in a range of locations - including up to a 20 mile radius of this location. You will have the opportunity to pick full or part time flexible work rotas, suited to you, with days, nights and weekends on offer.

For a limited time only, we are also offering a free uniform and free DBS check when you join our team!

We are a family friendly business, offering you the opportunity to work flexible hours, tailored to your commitments. For example, you can vary your rota during term time to accommodate a child's school routine.

The Healthcare Assistant (HCA) Job Role:

As a Newcross Healthcare Assistant (HCA) with our Taunton branch, you will take pride in giving the best possible quality of care to clients in a nursing or residential home setting in the local Langport areas.

You will play an essential part in supporting the wellbeing and quality of life of each individual in your care. Daily tasks may include assisting with washing and dressing, meal times, personal care and enabling our clients to participate in their favourite activities.

This is a flexible role and means you could be working for more than one home in the local area on a full or part time basis. You should be willing to travel and due to the location of some clients, access to your own vehicle is desirable.

Benefits of being a Newcross HCA:

  • Salary of up to £13.27/hr including holiday pay
  • Permanent contract with weekly pay and flexible hours
  • Free uniform and criminal record check (DBS) (limited time only)
  • Ongoing training and development available free through credits earned as you work

  • 24 hour support through dedicated central team
  • Online Intranet and smartphone app to manage your availability and bookings
  • Opportunities to develop skill sets, with the chance to progress and offer support to complex care clients
  • One-to-one relationship with a local service manager

In order to be successful in this role, you will need to be a naturally compassionate person with a strong sense of empathy for those individuals in your care.

To apply for this role, you will also need to have:

  • The right to live and work in the UK
  • At least 3 months’ previous paid experience working in a care or nursing home 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
  • Drivers preferred
  • A certificate confirming your participation in a practical moving and handling course in the last 12 months
