Full or Part time hours, permanent contracts
We're looking for kind-hearted people to join us at Cera as Professional Care Assistants in Killin and surrounding areas.
To join us as a Care Assistant, you don't need any previous experience. It may be that you have cared for a vulnerable loved one, experienced a personal loss or be a charitable person that is always looking to help others. That kind of experience gives you rare skills – compassion, understanding and patience.
Day to day, you will visit clients in their own homes and may support them to get washed and dressed (personal care, including toileting needs), or make sure they have grocery supplies, take their medication and have a hot meal, you'll also help them out with household tasks. But that's not why their eyes will light up when you arrive. That'll be because of what you bring to their lives. Human company, reassurance and hopefully some fun.
So, if you tick these boxes and are looking for a secure part-time or full-time job, you've got everything you need to start training as a Professional Care Worker with us and start or continue your social care career.
We truly value you and the work you do! Carers are at the core of Cera's vision of empowering people to live longer, healthier lives in their homes, and are our greatest asset. Our values of Commit, Connect and Create are at the heart of all that we do.
At Cera, care is not just a job - it's a career, and we commit to helping you progress and truly make a difference by upskilling through a blended learning approach via workshops, elearning and apprenticeships. We'll provide training and fund your SVQ qualification^ and everything you need to support those out in the community. Due to our growth, we have several career progression path's available - from nursing to operational management positions.
We support you and your well being, and as a valued employee, you'll have access to WeCare - our new employee benefits platform which offers shopping discounts and cashback from over 800 retailers, as well as access to our employee assistance program, Healthcare Cashplan, Eyecare Plan and a wellbeing centre to support you with your mental and physical health.
We make it easy for you to care for your clients - bringing care into the 21st Century by creating technology that reduces administrative tasks, improves outcomes and enables you to focus on what matters most - looking after the people we care for.
