Job Description


You’re a compassionate, can-do person with experience supporting older people. You’ve already got a Level 2 vocational qualification in Health and Social Care (either a diploma or NVQ). Now you’re ambitious to progress further. You’re good at using your initiative and working well under pressure. To you, it’s more than just a job. It’s a role where you happily go the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of older, frail people. In return, you get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK’s leading care home providers. 

Your role

Residents are at the heart of everything we do. As part of a close-knit, friendly team, you’ll assist them with their physical and emotional needs. More than just a carer, you’ll be a true friend who champions their dignity and respects their independence. From day one, we’ll help you progress and take on more responsibility. For example, you’ll be involved in developing individual care plans and supporting new colleagues. To succeed, you’ll need to be able to think on your feet, prioritise your own workload and keep accurate records. We’ll give you ongoing support and quality training to build your career.

As a Care Assistant at Care UK, you can look forward to:

  • Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
  • Option to apply for Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship
  • Fast-track career options, e.g. into nursing or management roles
  • Quality training to develop your skills
  • Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts
  • 25 days’ annual leave
  • Bank holiday enhancements
  • Stakeholder pension
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Free uniform
  • Thousands of online and in-store discounts

About Care UK

We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support. 

  • Where you'll work
  • We offer a combination of high quality care and a warm welcome for residents, friends and family.

    Stanley Park is a modern and attractive purpose-built care home with a peaceful residential location in the heart of the small town of Stanley. We offer nursing, residential, respite and day care for older people, including individuals living with Alzheimer's, other types of dementia and those who may have behaviours that challenge. We also provide sensitive and supportive end of life care.

    Our friendly, compassionate team provides a high standard of personalised care to each resident and day guest. We take the time to really get to know every individual and find out about their lifetime experiences and interests.

    We involve residents in planning their own care, to make sure they feel valued, listened to and independent. We keep residents’ families informed about all decisions and we always have a warm welcome for visitors – and that includes any family pets that want to pop in.
