If you're passionate and caring and looking for a rewarding job that comes with excellent training and great opportunities for personal development, join Care UK as a Care Assistant and make a real difference.
Being a Care Assistant at Care UK
Care Assistants at Care UK come from all walks of life. Some have worked in factories, supermarkets or schools. Some are returning to work after a break. Many have no, or minimal, experience, but are keen to explore a career in care, while many already have invaluable experience. What they all have in common is the right values. They’re adaptable, friendly, polite and caring. They enjoy working as a team with people from different cultures and backgrounds. And, they consider it a privilege to be trusted to look after others. Do you share their values? Then we could have just the role for you.
What you’ll be doing
Being a Care Assistant doesn’t just mean helping residents to remain as active and independent as possible while respecting their rights of choice, privacy and dignity. It means having fun and laughter with them and using your skills to help them deal with day-to-day difficulties like personal care and meal times. It also means working as part of a team to identify their unique goals and implement personalised care plans. And, it means working flexibly to help them explore new interests, engage in physical exercise and activities and make sure they enjoy themselves in a stimulating and homely environment. Put simply, it means making a difference. A real difference.
What you’ll need
Experience of caring for others would be useful, not necessarily in a paid role – you may have looked after an elderly relative or friend. More important though is your kind-hearted nature, your belief in teamwork and your ability to use your initiative and imagination, follow instructions and prioritise a busy workload. You’ll be comfortable talking to, and working with, people from different professions, you’re great at keeping records too. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.

- Where you'll work
At Station House you can expect a warm welcome from the moment you step through the door.
Station House is a modern, purpose-designed care home set in a leafy residential area of Crewe in Cheshire. We can provide nursing for older people, including those living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. We also offer intermediate and transitional care.
As soon as you step through our door, you'll notice the home’s warm, welcoming atmosphere. Our experienced, friendly team treats every individual with dignity and respect. We make sure that residents and day guests have choices about their care and how they spend their time, and we help everyone to stay as active and independent as possible.
We offer flexible daytime care for older people living in the area – day guests can be referred to us by social services or families can approach us directly. We also offer intermediate care, for people who have had a stay in hospital and need some extra support before returning to their own home.
Maintaining the highest possible standards is very important to us and we recently received Gold Standards Framework accreditation to demonstrate the quality of our 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.
