Job description

We are currently recruiting for an experienced care assistant to provide care throughout the night to a young child based in Lancaster.

Our client has a condition called Charge Syndrome, which has left him with a congenital heart defect and extremely sensitive skin. He is dependent on a tracheostomy and a jejunostomy tube for feeding and medication, so relies on his team for all aspects of his support.

We are looking for a care assistant to provide support with night shifts from 9pm to 7am.

We deliver a package of care the covers 7 days a week, therefore we can offer both full and part time hours. You will be working on a rota basis, which means you can plan around your shifts and know exactly when you will be working. We do also expect to have day shifts available in the coming months as our client attends school.

Our client is a very active young boy. He is deaf and uses Makaton to communicate primarily through school. He lives at home with his Father and the care you deliver will make a huge impact on his everyday life and the quality of life for him and his Father.

We are looking for candidates with experience in complex care, who can commit on an on-going basis. You will be able to choose either full or part time hours and you will be placed on a long-term rolling rota.

  • Excellent rates of pay
  • Full clinical training specific to your client's needs
