Avante Care & Support provide high-quality residential home care and support to the elderly and those living with dementia. We are looking for Care Assistants to join our care home, Chaucer House, located in Canterbury, Kent.
We have the following vacancies:
Day shifts working 36 hours per week.
Night shifts working 36 hours per week.
If you have recently been made redundant from a customer service role we welcome your application. The skills required for customer service are transferable and relevant for looking after vulnerable people.
As a Care Assistant, you will be reliable, friendly and professional. You will be a team player with great communication skills and a flexible approach to work. Whilst previous experience is useful, it is not essential as we will train you and provide you with the opportunity to complete your professional qualifications if required.
You and your colleagues will be responsible for creating a new, positive and engaging lifestyle for our residents, whilst delivering the day to daycare and comfort they need.
Main Duties will include:
• Personal Care
• Supporting and encouraging the well-being of residents
• Assisting residents with all activities of daily life
If the above sounds like you, join now and benefit from:
• Highly competitive rates of pay (£9.27-£9.68 per hour, depending on qualifications)
• Training & development opportunities.
• A DBS (at no cost to yourself).
• A free uniform.
• Flexible working patterns.
• A friendly, supportive, team working environment.
All appointments are subject to a DBS check, the completion of a health declaration and the collation of references, which Avante find acceptable.
We are an Equal Opportunities Employer.
