A great new opportunity has just come up for a Senior Care Assistant (HCA) to join the team at one of a selection of premium care homes in the Ferndown area, supporting top-level residential and respite care on the night shift.

The homes fall under one of the UK’s Top 20 Care Home Groups in 2024, well-known for providing high-quality, person-centred care for people needing a little extra support to live well.

In return, the team can offer you a fantastic package for a truly rewarding career in care, including further specialist training, opportunities to gain new qualifications, and bespoke support to progress up the ladder; a £500 sign-on bonus* is also available to give you an extra-warm welcome onboard.

This is a permanent, full-time (36h or 44h) Senior Care Assistant position, nights only.
