Care Assistant Location: Lichfield Pay rate: £9.80 - £10.00 per hour Cera are recruiting Care Assistants in Lichfield. We're not worried about your previous experience or qualifications, we can give you all the training you need to become a Professional Carer, but there are some things you can't learn - like being compassionate, patient and understanding. If you can tick these boxes, then a care job with Cera might just tick yours. We're recruiting for part time and full time permanent positions. We cover areas including Lichfield, Burntwood, Hednesford, Cannock and Alrewas. It's secure work that comes with good pay, great training, and real prospects - PLUS a £500 joining bonus! What's involved? There are quite probably older, more vulnerable people living in your street. People who, with the right care, can still live safely and comfortably in their own homes. Staying at home is probably the one thing they want most and it's what our carers provide –by visiting them once or maybe several times a day.
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.
It's fair to say, there are sad times. We've been to a few funerals, and said many goodbyes. Caring isn't always easy, but a lot of families will be grateful that you did.
If caring sounds like your kind of job, then you're our kind of person.
