Constance Care are on the hunt for warm and kind people like you to join our amazing team of part and full time care assistants in Kilmarnock (Bonnyton/Hurlford) and surrounding areas.

The fact that you're thinking about becoming a care assistant makes you part of a special group of people - the most compassionate and interesting people we know. There are many reasons why people become care assistants, but the main motivation is the chance to make a difference.

And that's just what you'll be doing when you work with us. You'll become part of our incredible team, helping us deliver emotional and practical care to vulnerable adults and transforming their lives on a daily basis.

In return, we'll support you every step of the way, providing training as well as the opportunity to progress your career. Bear in mind that you'll be working on a rota basis, which may include early starts, late finishes and some weekend working. The shifts for these part time and full time posts will be 7am - 3pm and 3pm - 10pm on a 2 week rolling rota basis WK1 Mon/Thurs/Fri - WK2 Tues/Wed/Sat/Fri. This not only gives you regular hours, meaning you always know when you are working with a great work life balance, it also provides continuity of care to our clients which is very important to us.

You don't need previous experience to become a care assistant, as we provide full training.

  • An energetic, happy person who enjoys forming relationships with all sorts of people
