We have a great opportunity for a Healthcare Assistant (HCA) to join our luxury assisted living service just outside Oxford, helping to support residents and enhance their lives in a warm and welcoming setting.

Sharing grounds with a more traditional care home, our assisted living apartments have been specially converted from a classic Edwardian manor to offer older adults the freedom of a private, contemporary living space with additional support options for age-related needs (such as personal care, facilities services, fresh catered meals, and the chance to join any social activities and events going on next door).

As a Care Assistant with the team, you will assist with daily living and provide direct support and companionship, enabling residents to live well and keep active in a safe and caring environment. In return, you will be offered substantial training and development opportunities alongside one of the sector’s best benefits packages for a fulfilling and rewarding career in care.

The site is quite rural and there is limited public transport in the area – you will need a driving licence and access to a personal vehicle to be able to reliably get to/from the site.

This is a permanent, full-time position (up to 48h available) with options for days or nights.

 

Person specification:

Candidates will have:

  • Previous experience in caring for older people.
  • Driving licence / personal transport (due to location).

It is an advantage but not essential to have:

  • NVQ Level 2 or 3 in Health & Social Care.

 

Benefits/enhancements include:

  • Extensive range of holiday, retail, and leisure discounts
  • Substantial learning & development opportunities
  • Company pension scheme
  • Life insurance coverage
  • Health and wellbeing assistance programme
  • Monthly staff lottery offering cash prizes
  • Recognition and reward schemes
  • Unlimited access to Refer-a-Friend bonus scheme
  • And more!
