We’re looking for Health Care Assistants across the New Forest, both experienced or new to care, to join our team and become a valued part of day-to-day life in one of our luxury homes – Linden House, Court Lodge, Belmore Lodge, Woodpeckers, and Kingfishers.
Under the leadership and guidance of our Nursing team and Senior Care Lead, you’ll play an essential role providing personal care, assisting residents to lead a fulfilled life. You’ll build lasting relationships with our residents and make a meaningful difference to their health and wellbeing every day.
Already experienced in care? Then you’ll have exciting opportunities to progress. We’re proud to support carers with a well-established development pathway, starting with fully funded Diplomas in Health and Social Care. You could become a Senior Care Lead, then progress to Trainee Nurse Associate and beyond!
If a career in care is for you and you want to be part of something special, we’d love you to apply. A member of our dedicated recruitment team will then be in touch to discuss the positions available and help identify those that best suit your work/life balance and location.
Compassion is in your nature. You’re willing to be hands-on with residents and help them whenever needed. You’re organised, hard-working, resilient, with good observations skills, attention to detail and a sense of fun.
You don’t need to have experience. Your personal qualities and values are more important to us, and you’ll be supported with a comprehensive induction and ongoing training from day one.
