Description

The Burlington Care Home, located in Shepperton is currently seeking enthusiastic and empathetic team players to join our team. The Burlington is a newly built care home which provides compassionate residential, dementia and respite care in a high-quality and luxurious environment.

We are looking to recruit professional, reliable, naturally caring people who want to make a real difference to peoples' lives.

As a Care Assistant, you will work in a team to provide high quality care to residents paying attention to their specific and individual needs. You will support during meal times, get involved in all activities provided by the home to promote our relationship centred care and have great attention to detail on health and safety measures thereby creating a safe and happy environment in the home.

No experience is necessary as you will be fully trained. Although we can teach you most things, we cannot teach you compassion, so this is an essential requirement for this role. Our Care Assistants are dedicated, have a genuine interest in those they care for and above all are naturally kind and warm-hearted.

To ensure you feel confident in all aspects of your role, you will have the opportunity to develop your career through ongoing training and development opportunities.
