The Maples (CHC)

We are recruiting Care Assistants for our Extra Care unit in The Maples.

We're recruiting for part-time and full-time permanent positions, days and nights. It's secure work that comes with good pay, great training and no previous experience is required.

Working hours:

Block hour shifts. Weekend working required.

Shift times vary but we are 24 hours. Day shifts are between 7am - 10pm and working hours are usually split into mornings to lunches, and dinners to beds, but we do have hours that cover the full day. Night shift blocks run from 8pm - 8am.

Extra Care units offer residents their own self contained living space within a larger building, with access to care staff who are based within the unit and who provide care to each resident. As a care assistant at our Extra Care Unit, you will be supporting residents, who all have varying needs to live as independently as possible, with personalised care and support plans in place.

Every client's needs are different. You may assist with a bit of housework or help with getting up in the morning. A tasty hot meal and a listening ear. A hand with meds or getting washed and dressed. But more than this, our carers become friends, providing human company, encouragement and maybe a laugh or two, often when life has become a bit tough. Caring isn't always easy, but a lot of families will be grateful that you did.
