A Golden Hello is just one of the ways we'll reward you when you join Barchester in this role.

At Wadhurst Manor our multi-disciplinary team provides nursing and residential care as well as specialist care for those living with dementia in our Memory Lane Community. We are currently looking for Care Assistants with a passion to care for people to join our team of highly skilled qualified nurses and other professionals at our purpose-built care home.

As a Care Assistant at a Barchester care home, you'll help residents enjoy each day by making sure they get the quality care and support they deserve. You'll assist with daily living, providing support and companionship - and sharing great moments and memories too. It's a chance to bring your dedication and compassion to a fulfilling environment. Every day will be different, so you can expect to undertake work that's as varied as it is rewarding. As a Care Assistant, you could be doing anything from supporting residents with their food and drink and following care plans to ensuring that each of our residents has one-to-one time. It's an opportunity to put your skills to meaningful use and develop your career.

Our home is located just a 10 minute walk from Wadhurst Station and we can now provide transport from Tunbridge Wells.

You'll need to have empathy, a can-do approach and excellent communication skills to join us as a Care Assistant. You don't need any specific care experience as we'll provide all the training you need to thrive, but candidates with care experience will be viewed more favourably. Whatever your experience level, you'll have real compassion for all our residents in order to deliver the highest standard of care and support.

We are looking for full-time or part-time carers that can work night shifts.

As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:

• A £500 Golden Hello*
• Free learning and development
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Unlimited access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme

If you'd like to use your people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you'd expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding place to be.
