A brand-new opportunity has arisen for a Healthcare Assistant (HCA) with some elderly care experience to join the team at an “Outstanding”-rated premier care home in Henfield.

With accessibility and memory-friendliness built in – right down to the foundations, with its design based on leading academic research – the home is the ideal place for older people to retire to. Against a backdrop of sprawling, award-winning gardens and the charming Sussex countryside, the team provides expert residential, nursing and specialist dementia throughout the luxurious main building and an annex of assisted living apartments (which are always in extremely high demand).

As a Care Assistant, you’ll have a hand in making sure each resident gets the support they need. You will see a lot of variety in your day-to-day – from assisting with daily living activities, to spending some quality one-to-one time, to helping out with some planned entertainment – and in rain or shine, you’ll help each resident to live well and stay active in a warm and caring place.

This opportunity comes with a £500 sign-on bonus* and access to one of the care sector’s best employee packages, which includes reward and recognition schemes (such as Employee of the Month), teambuilding initiatives and free opportunities to up-skill, gain new qualifications, and advance to Senior HCA, Team Leader roles and beyond. With great rewards and support on the table, there’s no better place for a fulfilling career in care.

This is a permanent, full-time (36h) Care Assistant role with days and nights available.

Due to the home’s rural location and limited public transport in the area, you will likely need to be able to drive for a reasonable commute to and from the home.
