Care Assistant

Who are we?

Danforth Care Homes 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. 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 are delighted to be opening Broadlands Lodge Care Home in September this year and would like to invite you to come along for the exciting journey! Broadlands Lodge is based in Norwich, Norfolk and we are ready to start building our elite 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.

The Role:

As a Care Assistant at Broadlands Lodge, you will be required to provide the best possible care and support (physically and emotionally) to our residents on a day or nightly day basis. Your responsibilities will include personal care, getting ready for the day/night ahead, assisting with meals (food and nutrition) and providing day to day social interaction which is just as important as each individual’s physical wellbeing.

Being a Care Assistant is a busy role where our resident’s needs will be your top priority. You will be supported by a senior in charge on every shift as well as a hands on management team who are in the home each day. You will ensure all resident activity is recorded effectively (training will be provided) and any concerns are highlighted in a timely manner.

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!

We are looking for individuals who have a passion for care (first and foremost) and those who are keen to be the best in the sector. You will work as part of a dynamic care team, ensuring the home adheres to the necessary requirements and procedures at all times.

Hours of work:

08.00 – 20.00 (days) or 20.00 – 08.00 (nights) and you will be expected to work on a permanent rolling rota of three shifts on, three shifts off which equates to an average of 42 hours per week in total.

We will offer:

  • A permanent contract of employment
  • A competitive rate of pay
  • We will support you to complete an NVQ qualification
  • Fully funded enhanced DBS check
  • A job with purpose and satisfaction
  • Fully funded uniform
  • Paid Breaks
  • Refer a friend bonus scheme

This is a varied and rewarding role that will no doubt provide you with a feeling of job satisfaction. If you are seeking an exciting opportunity with a forward-thinking organisation, then this could be the job for you!

Expected start date: September 2022

Job Types: Full-time, Permanent

Salary: £10.20 - £11.20 per hour + paid breaks
