A full driving licence and access to your own vehicle are essential.

On 9th November 2021 the government announced its intention to extend the requirement for mandatory vaccines to any workers who provide CQC regulated health or social care activities. This role is likely to fall within the new legislation should it become law. Therefore we request that before applying candidates consider that from the 1st April 2022, should the proposals become law, that the postholder will need to be fully vaccinated unless medically exempt.

As a Carer, your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Providing personal care
  • Food and hydration preparation
  • Medication
  • Assisting with general household duties
  • And other supporting activities

We encourage a healthy work-life balance with family-friendly policies. We offer an attractive benefits package for employees and a competitive and transparent system of pay and reward.

These benefits include:

  • a permanent contract
  • 39 days paid annual leave, inclusive of bank holidays
  • Excellent training & development opportunities, including an NVQ Level 2 & 3
  • Access to Westfield Health Plan
  • Pension scheme
  • Tax-free childcare
  • DBS check
  • Uniform
  • Enhanced company sick pay*
  • Fully paid gym, swim & class membership at all Trafford leisure facilities

We're actively building diverse teams and encourage applications from everybody. We want to create an inclusive environment where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential. We celebrate our differences and recognise the importance of our teams reflecting the communities we serve.

We also offer up to £200 if you refer someone we then employ in a care role.

If this sounds like the role for you, apply now by completing the form or for more information, please contact Raegan Daniels on 0161 968 0186.
