Casual Care Assistants
Working at either of our two care homes in North West London, Swiss Cottage

- Rathmore House (Swiss Cottage)
- Compton Lodge (Swiss Cottage)

Salary: £17,750 per annum (FTE)

Casual hours available

Get immediate income - and lend a helping hand
If you need extra income during this difficult time, then why not lend a hand to the most vulnerable people? We’re seeking suitable staff cover to work at our care homes to look after people aged 65 and over, some of whom have dementia. It’s a challenging time for our care home residents, and if you’re available now/soon, then you can get paid to make a big difference!

C&C has a long-standing bank scheme, providing work on a shift-by-shift basis to Care Assistants, Domestic staff and Administrators. We are now growing the scheme to make sure we are able to fully support our residents in the long-term, come what may.

The offer
The Care Assistant salary is £17,750 per annum for 37 hours, including paid breaks. Shifts last for 12 hours and 20 minutes, three days per week and additional shifts are available. We can be flexible to accommodate other lengths of shift, for example covering our busiest times.

Whilst currently we are looking for people to work casual hours, we also have full and part-time permanent roles available. A comprehensive induction and training will be given.

Who we are
C&C is a forward-thinking and innovative charitable provider of housing, care, and bespoke services exclusively for older people in London. We have 90 years’ experience of retirement home design and living in London. We are very proud of the ‘family’ feel of our homes and our innovative strategies for supporting residents.

Your role as a Care Assistant
You will help to deliver a high-quality service to residents at one or more of our care homes in Swiss Cottage. You will support residents with their physical care and personal hygiene needs, ensuring that their independence, privacy and dignity are preserved and developed wherever possible.

About you
You will need:

- Good communication skills
- Basic literacy and numeracy skills
- To be compassionate and patient
- Ideally, some experience in a caring industry, for example hospitality or schools
- To pass our DBS check

Even better if you have previous experience of a care environment, providing personal care or knowledge of dementia.
