Care Assistant

Care Assistant/Bus Escort

Minimum 16 hours per week


We require a professional qualified care assistant to work in our increasingly busy centre for care supporting older people many of whom have low to medium debilitating lifelong conditions such as dementia. Founded in 1968 we are a charity established for over 50 years and provide a day of positive stimulation and activity for our members whilst providing valuable respite to carers.

You must have a confident and encouraging attitude and an understanding and appreciation of the needs and feelings of our service users (in particular relating to personal care) and you must be able to engage and motivate service users with activities either in a group or on a one to one basis. You may also be required to escort on the bus. Experience of working with people with mental health conditions (in particular dementia) and people with physical disabilities would be advantageous.

To ensure the smooth running of our services, applicants must be flexible and able to work extra hours to attend outings and cover absences. Our service operates from 8.30am until 4.30pm Monday – Friday.
