  • Have you a passion in supporting older people? Do you have interest Health and Social Care  plus a willingness to learn? Then we can offer you the care career you’ve always wanted, with excellent benefits and flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts.

    What you’ll do

    Assisting residents with their physical and emotional needs, you will do whatever it takes to help them get the most out of life. More than just a carer, you will be a true friend who champions their dignity and maximises their independence, and you will have an increasingly important part to play in the development of care plans and the induction of new colleagues.

    Who you are

    With broad knowledge of caring for the elderly, you will be able to make a significant contribution from your first day. To succeed, you should be capable of prioritising your own workload, maintaining detailed records and using your initiative to the full, and you will be determined to develop your skills with our support.

    Who we are

    With 120 homes and day clubs across the UK, we provide expert respite, residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. Our highly personal, patient-centred approach has seen us enjoy rapid growth, with three new homes planned for next year, so we can offer exceptional career opportunities to people who care as deeply as we do.

    What we offer

    As one of our valued care assistants you can expect comprehensive training in general clinical care as well as dementia. What’s more, we offer one of the best benefits packages around, including, a stakeholder pension and life assurance scheme, bank holiday enhancements, child care vouchers, thousands of online and in-store discounts and free uniform.

  • Where you'll work
  • Our brand new care home, Heathlands House opened in Cambridge in August 2021. We believe that residents deserve the very best and we offer a full range of residential care services in hotel-style surroundings, including a café, hair and beauty salon, bar and cinema. The 64 bedded care home is divided into different suites – collections of bedrooms with a dining room and lounge. Creating smaller communities in the home makes it easier for residents to get to know each other. The highly trained, professional team deliver permanent and short-term nursing and residential care, as well as dementia care and end of life care.  

Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
