Role overview

You make a difference, every day, that’s why we need you in our team.

We are looking for a number of Care Assistants to work day shifts, in our beautiful home in Otterbourne.

Who are you?

We are seeking individuals who can demonstrate our four key values; kindness, care, choice and community. Previous care experience is always useful, but training is provided.

We pride ourselves on providing the best possible care for our residents and our ability to make them feel like family within a loving home. We need you to be like minded in this approach, valuing the small things which are important to each of our residents.

“What we do every day is not a job. We call it work but it is far more than that. We pour our hearts into it”.

What will I be doing?

As a Care Assistant - Days, you will be:

  • Acting as a key worker to some residents, and ensuring care plans are up to date and accurate;
  • Providing personal care to the residents, ensuring dignity and respect are maintained at all times;
  • Supporting new members of the team and providing constructive feedback;
  • Encouraging independence as much as possible.

To be considered for the role of Care Assistant- Days, we are looking for:

  • Flexibility in working hours, including working alternate weekends;
  • A shared understanding and the ability to demonstrate our four key values;
  • A caring, compassionate personality;
  • Reliability and punctuality.

This is a full time position of 36 hours per week to be worked on a rota basis and to include alternate weekend working. The shift patterns are 8.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. and 2.00 p.m. – 8.00 p.m.

In return we offer an hourly rate of £9.70 (£10.05 with NVQ2), enhanced rates for working Bank Holidays and 5.6 weeks holiday (including Bank Holidays). In addition we provide full training and continuing personal development including the opportunity to undertake an NVQ/QCF, a free uniform, free initial DBS check, paid breaks, free meals when on duty, free parking, a Refer a Friend Bonus Scheme, Employee Assistance Programme and a Group Personal Pension Plan.

Brendoncare Otterbourne is located in between Chandlers Ford and Winchester, and comprises a care home providing personalised nursing and dementia care, residential apartments for those living with dementia, and a community hub where residents and local people can enjoy a range of facilities, activities and social opportunities.

If you believe in treating people as individuals and are passionate about providing care with dignity and respect, then we would love to hear from you!
