At Halcyon Care, we are focused on making our care homes not just luxury places for our residents to live, but also wonderful places for our team members to work in. Because we believe that our residents deserve the very best care we can offer, we are committed to finding exceptional, caring individuals who want to join our team.

We will ensure that every team member is offered the opportunity to develop their skills and to progress if desired. We believe that caring, compassionate people can find a rewarding career in helping others and that it is our duty to help and encourage them to do so.

We are currently seeking Senior Care Assistant’s to guide and direct a team of Care Assistant’s to ensure high standards of care are achieved and maintained, and to oversee the smooth running of a specific floor during each shift.

This is a busy role where our resident’s needs will be your top priority. You will quickly become part of the care home family and let’s be honest, our team members are what makes our home a great place to live and work!

You will have achieved or be working towards a Diploma/NVQ Level 2 in Health & Social Care to evidence your commitment and passion for care and be excited about the prospect of working as part of a dynamic team, ensuring the home adheres to the necessary requirements and procedures at all times, as the 'senior’ in charge.

Your hours of work will be 08.00 - 20.00 and you will be expected to work on a permanent rolling rota of three shifts on, three shifts off.

This equates to an average working week of 42 hours in total.

We will offer: -

  • A permanent contract of employment
  • A competitive salary
  • We will support you to complete an NVQ qualification
  • Fully funded enhanced DBS check
  • A job with purpose and satisfaction
