As a Newcross Healthcare Assistant with our Plymouth 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 Plymstock area.

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.

The Healthcare Assistant Job Role:

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 assisting with activities as required.

As a naturally compassionate person, you will deliver 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.

  • Salary of up to £13.53/hr including holiday pay
  • Permanent contract with weekly pay
  • DBS check cost refunded after initial joining period
  • Uniform and training available free through credits earned as you work
  • 24 hour support through dedicated central team
  • Recommend a friend scheme, paying up to £500 per successful referral
  • Online Intranet and smartphone app to manage your availability and bookings

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.

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
