Care Assistant

Here at Aycliffe we are looking for an enthusiastic, caring and exceptional Care Assistant to join our caring forwarding thinking Bank team.

We are looking for carers who are starting out their career and carers who are experienced who want to be part of Akari Care and who will be proud to be a part of the family.

Akari Care will offer you development plans, never curb your enthusiasm and support you in every way. In return we will look to you to promote an atmosphere which enables our residents to have fun and thoroughly enjoy living at Aycliffe whilst assisting them with their individual needs.

Aycliffe Care Home is situated in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, just a five-minute walk away from the town centre.

Our staff engage in a very honest and natural way with the residents. They really care about them. They always make sure they look presentable – that the ladies have their make-up on and their clothing and accessories match, that the gents are shaved and their hair combed. When members of staff pass the residents, they’re always very positive and affectionate, and at the same time treating them with respect and dignity.

We have a full-time Activities Co-ordinator who keeps the residents active. We have a film club. The local church does a weekly listening service. We have a resident committee which produces a newsletter. One resident recently asked if we could have a band as entertainment, instead of just a singer: agreed! Another wanted apple pie back on the menu: also agreed!

What we will offer you in return!

  • A competitive starting salary with the opportunity to increase this through training and development
  • We cover the cost of your DBS check
  • Uniform provided
  • Recognition schemes (Akari Star Award)
  • Refer nurses bonus scheme (subject to T&C’s)
