You

You're a compassionate, can-do person with experience supporting older people. You're good at using your initiative and working well under pressure. To you, it's more than just a job. It's a role where you happily go the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of older, frail people. In return, you get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK's leading care home providers.

Your role

Residents are at the heart of everything we do. As part of a close-knit, friendly team, you'll assist them with their physical and emotional needs. More than just a carer, you'll be a true friend who champions their dignity and respects their independence. From day one, we'll help you progress and take on more responsibility. For example, you'll be involved in developing individual care plans and supporting new colleagues. To succeed, you'll need to be able to think on your feet, prioritise your own workload and keep accurate records. We'll give you ongoing support and quality training to build your career.

Competitive pay - we pay more than the average

About Care UK

We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK's leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential - with first-class training and support.

At Winchcombe Place care home in Newbury our dedicated team will help your loved one to continue living a busy and fulfilling life.

Our purpose-built care home in Newbury opened in April 2014 and provides a full range of care services for older people, including residential, short-term respite care and even sensitive end of life care.

When you first visit Winchcombe Place care home in Newbury we think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Think five star hotel rather than care home. We believe that living in a care home should be just as good as living in your own home - in fact, we strive to make it even better. So close by reception you'll find our hair and beauty salon, where residents can be regularly pampered; there's a coffee shop where they can relax with visitors over a cup of coffee and a slice of something delicious. There's even a cinema, where residents can catch the latest releases and Hollywood classics.

Scattered around the rest of Winchcombe Place are other great spaces for relaxing or doing activities, including a library, vintage-themed lounge and an arts and crafts room.
