Care Assistant

Job Type:

Permanent

Salary:

£8 - £12 Per Hour

Our Care Assistants all have one important thing in common – they are all very happy!

The reason why they are happy is for two reasons, firstly because they work for a company who respects, values and understands its Care Assistants and most importantly they end each day knowing they change the lives of the people in your community on a daily basis.

There is a great sense of community within our company and that is because we are a family. As a family we all look after each other and support each other and that is why we have Care Assistants who have been with us for over 5 years – and here are some of the reasons why….

We have a team that is filled with amazing people with a great sense of humour. Because, the office is always filled with a steady supply of cake and biscuits we are great listeners too (possibly because our mouths are full!) but on a serious note we are only able to do what we do so well by working as a team; understanding our Care Assistants and listening to their feedback -whether it’s a lovely story about a client or because they want some personal or professional support.

You will be joining an award winning team – We have a Gold Award winning support worker as recognised by the Welsh Care Awards and one of our Support Worker Teams have been shortlisted as finalists for the Team of the Year award.

Based in and around Newport here is how we support/reward our Care Assistants:

  • Company cars available that are fully insured if you don’t have a car
  • Hourly rate weekdays £7.83
  • Hourly rate weekends £8.33
  • Bank holiday up to £11.75
  • Christmas & Easter presents for our staff
  • Competitions to win hampers and vouchers throughout the year
  • Paid travel between calls (you’re never out of pocket!)
  • Guaranteed hours (optional)

  • Company mobile phone
  • Paid uniform, paid training & shadowing
  • Part time / full time
  • Open door policy – we always want you to come in and say hello over a cuppa

We are in a great location with lots of parking and right next to Tesco, so if you’re popping in to the office you can get your weekly shop done as well!

We are a family friendly office and we welcome you to visit any time you are passing.

No experience? No worries – Q Care offers a paid induction training programme, we have been in the business for 25 years and have acquired the best knowledge there is. We will train you to the highest standards and to be the best that you can be.

Our team have a mix of skills and varying backgrounds which include Teaching Assistant, Hair Dresser, Nursery Assistant, Retail assistants, Charity or Volunteering ……….. therefore just because you haven’t done it before doesn’t mean you won’t be great.
