Our Extra Care Housing schemes, also known as assisted living, are made up of self-contained one or two-bedroom apartments, all carefully designed and built to help clients live as independently as they can. With their own front door, clients can come and go as they please, socialise with neighbours in the communal areas or enjoy their own company in privacy. Within each housing scheme our care teams are on hand round the clock to support our clients with daily tasks and activities; this is known as domiciliary care. Our Domiciliary Care Assistants make a real difference to our clients every day; whether it’s helping them with their daily routines or personal care, providing companionship or supporting with light household duties, you’ll play a vital role in ensuring they are leading happy and fulfilled lives. No two days will be the same, but all of our clients live in the same building, so you won’t need to travel between different locations. In joining us, you’ll also become part of our extended family. You’ll work alongside other team members who are passionate about providing care, warmth and kindness to all those who live and work in our schemes. ABOUT YOU If you’ve worked in domiciliary care before, then that’s great as you’ll have a good idea of what to expect.

But if this profession is new to you, then don’t worry – we’ll provide all the training you need to start your care journey with us. It would be great if you hold or are working towards a Health and Social Care qualification. However, what’s more important to us is that you’re good at communicating with people, you’re compassionate with a can-do approach, you enjoy working as part of a team, are keen to learn and will want to excel at your job every day. AND IN RETURN The Trust is a great place to work; we’ve been providing care for almost 1,000 years and we’re currently the second largest not-for-profit provider in the UK. Not-for-profit means that we reinvest every penny we make into our residents, clients, colleagues and the care homes and schemes we live and work in. We keep our colleagues safe with plenty of PPE, offer a great range of benefits, including a competitive salary, and invest in training and development.

Here are some of the other benefits you’ll enjoy as a valued member of our team: * Free uniform * Higher rates of pay at weekends * Access to our Employee Assistance Programme * “My Rewards” programme, offering you discounts on shopping, days out, restaurants and much more If you think you have the right skills and attitude to deliver the highest quality of care for our residents as a Domiciliary Care Assistant within our Extra Care Housing division, then you could be next to join us. So, apply and get your career started with us today. OSJCT provide full PPE for all our services, along with clear protocols for its use, alongside weekly PCR tests and daily Lateral Flow tests.
