Casual Care Assistants
We are urgently seeking passionate individuals to work within our friendly Care Homes in Kew and Teddington, Richmond

Additional shifts are generally available. We can be flexible to accommodate other lengths of shift, for example covering our busiest times.

You will work alongside an amazing team that care passionately about our residents. We work hard to keep our residents engaged, active and enjoying their lives.

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
