Being a Care Assistant at Care UK
Care Assistants at Care UK come from all walks of life. We are looking for care assistants to join the team who share the same values as us: care, passion and teamwork! You will have a passion for helping people when it comes to care and put the residents at the heart of everything you do.

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.
What you’ll need to have:
Experience of caring/support worker 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.
Fulfilling lives, fulfilling Careers.
- Where you'll work
Our brand new purpose-built care home in North Bar Place in Banbury, Oxfordshire, will open in spring 2017.
Highmarket House will be close to the centre of Banbury and will provide the latest in luxurious facilities, combined with high quality round-the-clock care. Our dedicated and skilled teams will offer a full range of residential and nursing care for older people, including short-term respite care, specialist care for people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, plus palliative and end of life care.
We believe that when a person moves into a care home they should be able to continue to enjoy the lifestyle that they always have – keeping busy, seeing friends, being pampered and enjoying great food. The only difference is that you, and your loved ones, can have the peace of mind that expert care is on hand 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
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.
