Job Description

Bank Care Assistant
Location: Orchard Meadows - Banbury

Do you want to have greater say over when you work? Then this role is perfect for you.

Bank contracts are not temporary, but they are flexible. They don’t have any guaranteed hours so when we do offer you work it’s your choice to work or not. This gives you the flexibility to work around your other commitments, such as your studies, another job or caring for family members. Or if you a looking to gain experience in the care sector without making a permanent commitment, or to simply ‘keep your hand in’ if you are partially retired; bank contracts are an excellent option for you.

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
