Health Care Assistant

Are you interested in working in a warm, caring, compassionate environment that puts the person and their family at the centre of all that you do and passionate about making a difference to people's lives? Outlook Care has over 25 years of delivering person centred care and we are looking for HCAs to join the staff teams on our nursing and dementia wings at Foxburrow Grange, our specialist Dementia and Nursing home. The home which is within easy reach of major transport links and close to Colchester town centre, is an impressive, 69 bed home with state-of-the-art facilities, and an outstanding and friendly team of dedicated staff.

Permanent vacancies exist to cover a variety of shifts (some part-time hours are available which can be discussed at interview). Example shift patterns include working (6 or 12 hour shifts) four days on/three days off, or three days on/three days off on either days or nights. Ideally, applicants will be able to work every other weekend.

Experience of working with older people and dementia is an advantage, though full training will be provided to applicants with transferable skills. You will need to be a good team player, motivated, enthusiastic and able to build positive relationships. Excellent listening and communication skills are essential as well as good written and basic IT skills.
