Payrate: £9.50 per hour
We honestly don't mind what you're doing right now. You could be out of work, bouncing between jobs or just in need of a change. What's certain though is you're a caring kind of person. Friends, family, and colleagues all say it. The good news is, just being a great human being could unlock a new career for you as a Care Assistant.
A care job at Cera offers secure prospects and high-quality training that leads to all kinds of career opportunities.
There's one thing we hear a lot from the people we care for. They're not as young or fit as they were. Life has its difficulties. And more than anything, they want to live as independently as possible.
Working in an Extra Care unit means that you, alongside your colleagues will provide round the clock support for residents who live within the unit, ensuring they have all the support they need whilst helping them to maintain independence.
But that's not why we need caring people. There's a whole other side to the job, providing friendship, reassurance and hopefully some laughs along the way. If our existing carers are to be believed, you'll get a lot out of these relationships too.
It's not for everyone. There'll be tough days when people take a turn for the worse or aren't exactly sweetness and light. But that's why we value your kindness and patience so highly.
Few jobs make more of an impact - and this one can become a career. You can progress to more senior or specialist positions with us, and still work flexible hours.
We're stronger together.
Cera's not just about serving the community. It's about being one. You'll be working with people who are like you and who'll be there for you through the good times and the challenging times.
Then there are branch teams and care specialists you can call on with concerns, not to mention technology that lets you concentrate on care, instead of admin.
We will applaud your hard work with decent pay rates and staff benefits. And being a fast-growth company on a mission to revolutionise the care sector, there are genuine promotion prospects to team leader, care specialist or into management.
- There are often overtime opportunities, but these are voluntary.
- Care experience is NOT necessary, but you must be aged at least 18.
- You'll get a mobile phone with the Cera App, so you can work safely and efficiently.
- You must be prepared to occasionally wash and dress people.
