Do Competence, Choice and Compassion mean more than just words to you? Are you able to see a person and not their condition? If you answered yes, then our residents need you!
If caring comes naturally and you are looking for a rewarding career where you can really care and make a difference to our residents lives then a Care Assistant at The Marbrook Centre is the role for you.
We are looking for individuals with genuine kindness, empathy and the ability to step into the world of our residents, to share and enjoy those special moments together. Looking after those living with dementia can be challenging but is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding careers.
Everyone is different and we celebrate individuality. You will deliver the highest quality personalised care to our residents in line with their individual care plans with the dignity and respect they deserve. If you can offer a natural warmth and wish to make a difference to our residents lives then we would love to hear from you.
We welcome those with or without qualifications or previous care work experience. Whatever your background, with our training and support we can build on all your skills.
When we find people who share our values, we try to keep hold of them by nurturing and investing in them, supporting them to be the best that they can be and offer real progression and career development for those that want it.
Please note it is a mandatory requirement that you can demonstrate that you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless you have medical exemption in line with government guidance.
This role is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check for regulated activity.
