Abbey House

Job Ref: SJ503

Full and part time hours are available.

Are you caring and compassionate?
Do you enjoy variety in your job, and really making a difference?

Then Abbey House would love to hear from you.

We are a purpose built residential and nursing care home that offers dedicated and expert care to residents of all ages over 65. Abbey House is designed over three floors, with each floor having a different specialism including dementia care and general nursing and older people’s care.

As we grow our service we’re looking for enthusiastic and compassionate Care Assistants to join our supportive and friendly team. No care experience is necessary as you will be fully trained; however, as we cannot teach compassion, this is an essential requirement, and in return for your dedication and compassion we will offer you full training and support.

This is a really special role as you will be integral to the day-to-day care and support of our residents, helping ensure they maintain their dignity, independence and well-being at all times. In addition to assisting residents with all aspects of personal care, you’ll be responsible for ensuring that they get the most out of life every day. A crucial element to ensuring this will be implementing each resident’s person-centred electronic care plan, so a willingness to learn and develop your skills is essential.

In return for your dedication and commitment we offer a generous benefits package that includes a company pension scheme, child care vouchers and an employer funded health benefit plan worth up to £1,010 a year

Abbey House is located at 40 Richardson Road, off Thamesdown Drive, St Andrews Ridge, Swindon SN25 4YD. We are close to the Orbital Shopping Centre and have good bus links, plus free on-site car parking and secure bicycle parking.

** RECRUITMENT OPEN DAY – come and meet the team and our residents on the 6th or 9th December between 2-6pm. Drop in for a mince pie and a glass of something mulled and have a chat about the opportunities we have for you **
