Are you a Care Assistant who thrives on making a real and positive difference to the lives of older people?
If so, Akari Care would love to hear from you! We are looking for passionate Care Assistants to join our team working as part of our night shift.
At Akari Care, we provide residential and nursing care services to the elderly across the UK. Each care home is an extended family, bringing together residents and their loved ones, our colleagues in care, clinicians, hairdressers, commissioners and CQC regulators, members of the local community – the list goes on. We are focussed on creating a warm and inclusive environment in which our residents feel a sense of security and belonging, while at the same time retaining their dignity and self-respect.
We never compromise on the quality of our services and our extended team includes trusted GPs, Dentists, Chiropodists and Dieticians, who all work hard to improve our residents’ quality of life. Our dementia care homes have qualified, dedicated staff who help people to maintain the identity and dignity of our residents. With a focus on living life to the fullest, our homes offer activities such as hairdressing salons, bars, cinemas, gardening, and cooking courses to name just a few!
We are looking for people who are either looking to start their career within care or people who are experienced carers. We are looking for people who want to be part of Akari Care and who will be proud to be a part of the family.
Our carers are the first port of call for our residents, whether they be helping with personal care, meals or simply spending time with them chatting about the day. We look to our carers to create an atmosphere which enables our residents to have fun and thoroughly enjoy living with us at Akari Care whilst assisting them with their individual needs
In return we will offer you development plans, never curb your enthusiasm and support you in every step of your journey with us.

What’s in it for you:
St Mark’s Court Care Home is situated in the centre of Gateshead and serves a community that was in the past dominated by shipbuilding, and many of the staff and residents have lived in the area all their lives.
Visitors to St Mark’s Court always comment on how homely it is, every bedroom is different, and the residents are encouraged to give their room an individual feel and character of its own. We keep our residents active and involved with a wide range of activities happening weekly.
