We're recruiting care assistants to join our growing team across the Sefton area. We have work available in areas like Crosby, Thornhill, Maghull, Aintree, Litherland, Formby and Hightown.About the Role
We're looking to recruit more care workers as our business continues to grow. As more and more businesses are struggling at this time, our industry is in demand more than ever.
We're able to offer community-based roles on various terms including permanent or temporary contracts as well as full or part-time rotas. We also provide care seven days a week, around the clock. So, we should have something to suit you.
If you're already an experienced care professional, we would love to hear from you. We would also like to hear from beginners who are looking to move into the social care industry.
You don't need experience or qualifications. All that is needed is a desire to learn and a willingness to get involved. We provide free nationally recognised training so you can get a care qualification before you go into the community.
Plus, you will also do some paid shadowing of experienced team members so that you're confident and comfortable before you meet your own service users.
You'll need to be a driver with access to your own vehicle as our roles are based in the community, which involves travelling to service users' homes. We do pay travel time and mileage. You will also need a smart phone to use for work which involves downloading an app for viewing rotas etc.About Us
