Giving a family a much needed break, or supporting someone with their independence. This is why we do it. This is why care. As part of our Adult Social Care team, you’ll have a chance to make a real difference to the lives of those we come into contact with. It’s a chance to take our service to new heights. Add an array of brilliant benefits – including an amazing pension scheme, employee assistance programme, tax-free childcare, and staff discounts – and you’ve got a rewarding role in every sense.
About the role
As a Night Care Assistant, you’ll play your part in helping people lead fulfilling, dignified lives. Based at one of our Respite Units, you’ll provide excellent care for adults with learning disabilities during the night. Working alongside Residential Support Workers and Respite Managers, you’ll keep an eye on guests’ health and wellbeing, as well as administering medication. Meanwhile, we’ll give you all the support you need to thrive in your role.
With a commitment to quality, you’ll be careful to follow care plans, risks assessments, policies and procedures. You’ll also encourage people to make their own care choices and be as independent as possible. Plus, you’ll spot opportunities to take our service from strength to strength. You’ll be integral to our team, and your contribution hugely valued.
It goes without saying that you’ll be approachable and have excellent communication skills, but you’ll also show compassion and respect to everyone you meet. With your flexible and warm approach, you’ll be confident working with a diverse range of people with different needs. More than that, you’ll maintain integrity in everything you do, always communicating with sensitivity and empathy.
It’s a fantastic time to join Gloucestershire County Council, as we transform our Adult Social Care services. Through our team, we’re helping people with increasingly complex needs to remain independent and have a say in how they live. To succeed, we need people who’ll go the extra mile to see others well and happy and give families peace of mind. People who know that caring is the most rewarding feeling around.
Join us, and you’ll have a great opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives. Meanwhile, we’ll say thank you with a range of excellent benefits and you’ll have the training and support to develop your career. We genuinely care about our colleagues and support their wellbeing.
