You

You’re a compassionate, can-do person with experience supporting older people.  You’re good at using your initiative and working well under pressure. To you, it’s more than just a job. It’s a role where you happily go the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of older, frail people. In return, you get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK’s leading care home providers.

Your role

Residents are at the heart of everything we do. As part of a close-knit, friendly team, you’ll assist them with their physical and emotional needs. More than just a carer, you’ll be a true friend who champions their dignity and respects their independence. From day one, we’ll help you progress and take on more responsibility. For example, you’ll be involved in developing individual care plans and supporting new colleagues. To succeed, you’ll need to be able to think on your feet, prioritise your own workload and keep accurate records. We’ll give you ongoing support and quality training to build your career.

As a Care Assistant at Care UK, you can look forward to:

  • Competitive pay – we pay more than the average

  • Option to apply for Level 2 or 3 Advanced Apprenticeship

  • Fast-track career options, e.g. into nursing or management roles

  • Quality training to develop your skills

  • Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts

  • Bank holiday enhancements

  • Stakeholder pension

  • Childcare vouchers

  • Free uniform

  • Thousands of online and in-store discounts

    About Care UK

    We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.

  • Where you'll work
  • Mill View really lifts the bar in terms of what you can expect from a care home. When it comes to facilities we have everything anyone could need and more than you’d expect – from a coffee shop to a cinema, a shop and a hair and beauty salon. These all enable our residents to stay active and independent – making each day different and fun.

    But it’s our people, from our care team to our chefs and our housekeepers, who really make the difference for our residents. Everyone works hard to make every person, whatever their needs, feel valued and cared for.

Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
