As a Newcross Healthcare Assistant with our Yeovil team, you will take pride in giving the best possible quality of care to clients in a nursing or residential home setting in the local Gillingham area of Dorset.

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

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

  • Recommend a Friend scheme paying up to £500 per successful referral
  • 24 hour support through dedicated central team
  • Online Intranet and smartphone app to manage your availability and bookings

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

You will also need to have:

  • 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
