We’re looking for kind-hearted people to join us at Cera as Professional Care Assistants in Abercynon and surrounding areas.
To join us as a Care Assistant, you don’t need any previous experience. It may be that you have cared for a vulnerable loved one, experienced a personal loss or be a charitable person that is always looking to help others. That kind of experience gives you rare skills; compassion, understanding and patience.
Day to day, you will visit clients in their own homes and may support them to get washed and dressed (personal care, including toileting needs), or make sure they have grocery supplies, take their medication and have a hot meal, you’ll also help them out with household tasks. But that’s not why their eyes will light up when you arrive. That’ll be because of what you bring to their lives. Human company, reassurance and hopefully some fun.
So, if you tick these boxes and are looking for a secure part-time or full-time job, you’ve got everything you need to start training as a Professional Care Worker with us and start or continue your social care career.
We truly value you and the work you do! Carers are at the core of Cera’s vision of empowering people to live longer, healthier lives in their homes, and are our greatest asset. Our values of Commit, Connect and Create are at the heart of all that we do.
