Job Description

Health Care Assistants (or HCA’s as they often referred to) at Care UK come from all walks of life. Many have no, or minimal, experience, but are keen to explore a career in care, while many already have invaluable experience. What they all have in common is the right values. They’re adaptable, friendly, polite and caring. They enjoy working as a team with people from different cultures and backgrounds. And, they consider it a privilege to be trusted to look after others. Do you share these values? Then we could have just the role for you.
About the role
Working as a Health Care Assistant in Ophthalmology at our Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre you’ll provide support to the nursing staff, ensuring that a safe and effective service is provided to all users across the department. This will involve liaising with the recovery, theatre, ward and radiology teams when required. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.
With recent experience working as a Health Care Assistant it would be advantageous if you have worked in acute healthcare and have prior experience in ophthalmics. More important though is your flexibility, your knowledge of infection control, belief in teamwork and your ability to use your initiative, follow instructions and prioritise a busy workload.
Working at Care UK
Everything we do is focused on providing a high standard of safe and effective patient care. When you’re part of the Care UK team, you don’t just have a job. You have a career. We work with you to help you grow in your role and take your career in the direction you want to go. If you want to move up the ladder, we’ll support you. If you just want to stay in your role, that’s fine too. We’ll help you be the best you can be.
We want our team members to feel motivated and rewarded. So we offer a competitive package of pay and benefits. We also recognise the value of a healthy work-life balance – so we always try to be flexible, helping you fit your working life around your home life.
