Become a healthcare assistant

Join our award-winning team 

A rewarding career, guaranteed earnings and flexible hours to suit you.

Not all care needs are 24 hours a day. Sometimes people just need a little help now and then, or someone to call in and check how things are going. This, is where our healthcare service is ideal.

Our healthcare assistants are skilled carers who visit people in their own homes and provide personalised care as little or as often as they need it. Sometimes, it’s an ongoing arrangement, others simply need help for a set period of time, either way we work hard to give them the support they need and be as flexible as they need us to be. We’re currently recruiting for carers for both our Saxmundham and Stowmarket branches.
