Make a difference every day – Become a Care Assistant – Mental Health Team.  Full and Part Time posts available. BL1, BL2, BL3, BL4, BL5, BL6, BL7.

Nothing compares to the feeling that comes from knowing that you’ve brightened up someone’s day – especially when that someone is a vulnerable adult.  Guardian Homecare are on the hunt for warm and kind people like you to join our amazing team of part and full time care assistants in our Mental Health Team.

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 take up the role, but the main motivation is the chance to make a difference, encouraging people from all walks of life in becoming as independent as possible, knowing they have someone to assist them who has a passion for the role.

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 people with Mental Health and learning disabilities and helping to transform their lives on a daily basis and focusing on their needs.          

In return, we’ll support you every step of the way, providing training as well as the opportunity to progress your career. The hours are flexible, which means you’re able to fit the role in around other commitments including childcare or studying. Bear in mind that you’ll be working on a rota basis, which may include early starts, late finishes and some weekend working.
