Opportunities

 

This is a brand new role which has been created jointly with Bath & North East Somerset Council and the Royal United Hospital (RUH). As a Homecare Assistant you will be employed by the RUH and be part of the new in-house team of health and social care workers who will provide help for people recovering from hospital, which will in turn, free up hospital beds for new admissions as well as those in the community.

Homecare Assistant

If you are looking for a caring role in the community, this could be the perfect job for you as it offers many benefits including, competitive salary, flexible hours, the opportunity to develop both care and health skills, access to the wide range of NHS staff benefits, and to training courses run by both the RUH and Bath & North East Somerset Council.

The Homecare Assistant role is the great starting point for career opportunities across the NHS and Social Care, as well as those who would like a long-term career in care.

Experience is desirable but not essential as full training will be given.

However, you should be caring and reliable, sensitive to the needs of the people you work with.

If you are a car driver that would be helpful and we will pay your mileage to see your patients. We have some shifts that could work for those without access to their own vehicles, so if that's you, please get in touch to discuss.
