Senior Care Assistant


There has never been a more exciting time to join Halton Borough Council. As a care home division, we are excited to be involved in many exciting projects, including the development of an electronic care recording system, recruitment of volunteers and plans to refurbish all our homes with over £3 million secured to start work in 2023. Because of this, we are looking to recruit a Senior Care Assistant to bring value and happiness to the lives of elderly people.


Reporting to the Practise Manager as a Senior Care Assistant you will be key to ensuring that residents in our care homes are well looked after and happy. This role is essential to supporting the lives of elderly people, exploring their history, building relationships with their families and having a positive impact on their life.

You will support residents in their daily lives from washing and dressing to eating meals and moving around safely. You will take part in activities within the home, which could be anything from a relaxing drink in the garden to a competitive game of boules, nothing is off limits! You will be part of a supportive lively team who work together to help each other.

You will take on additional responsibility in the home, assisting the care home manager in the day-to-day running of the home and supervising the daily work routine of the care assistants. You will work closely with the care team to ensure high-quality care is delivered efficiently, liaising with external professionals, and completing reports and assessments where required.

There are a range of working hours and rotas available to meet your needs and that of the differing services.


As the Senior Care Assistant, you will be genuinely enthusiastic about providing person-centred and strengths-based care to our elderly residents, supporting them to enhance their health and well-being and live meaningful lives. 

The successful candidate will share our values of supporting elderly residents to live happy and fulfilled lives, will have a patient and kind manner, as well as a drive to create a fun and positive atmosphere within the homes.  Professional experience in care is essential, the experience of working in a senior role is desirable but not essential as full training will be provided.
