Our healthcare client is looking for agency Care Assistants to work in and around East Lothian, covering a range of shift patterns. In this role, you'll enjoy flexible hours that fit around your lifestyle and commitments and a salary of £9 - £13 depending on the shift.

Getting to know clients and their needs is critical to building trust and rapport, and you should have at least six months' paid relevant experience.

If you'd have been working as a Care Assistant in this role in East Lothian last week, here are some of the things you would have done:

  • Carried out aspects of personal care, assisting with feeding, bathing, washing and dressing
  • Managed weight checks and blood pressure checks
  • Kept records on all charts (feeding, activity etc.) and followed patients' care plans

It takes an extraordinary, dedicated person to be a Clinical Support Worker offering an experienced support service. You likely will have experience as an Agency Home Care Worker or Support Worker. The role is physically and emotionally demanding, but the job satisfaction makes the job worth it. The successful nursing candidate will earn an attractive salary and join an inclusive, committed team of healthcare professionals. A driving licence is an advantage.

The benefits of this role include:

  • Free DBS checks and free uniform
  • Flexible working hours and shifts
  • Excellent pay rates, holiday pay and free re-validation service

COVID-19 has put extra pressure on all nursing services primarily in the NHS, so your help and support filling these currently open agency Healthcare Assistant vacancies are much appreciated.
