Care UK offer job opportunities to Sussex people

Published

on

Care UK, one of the UK’s largest independent providers of care have opened a whole new range of job opportunities to people in the Sussex area.

For some, starting a career in Care can be daunting. Especially working for a Care Agency. It’s a minefield of sending off CV’s, arranging interviews, waiting for phone calls, only to be told there is another interview to attend.

Working for Care UK is completely different. You are immediately welcomed as part of a team that really wants to nurture your career in care. Our Carers are offered the stability of a permanent job, giving them complete peace of mind – not to mention a full induction once you start work, plus a whole range of in-work benefits including; childcare vouchers, sick pay, holiday pay, a pension scheme and, numerous staff discounts.

Care UK have one objective only, to provide the best Carers to their range of homes whilst also ensuring they are offering the best job packages.

Now, with Care work opportunities in 2 homes, one in Copthorne, and another in East Grinstead, the opportunities to start working locally, are available for everyone.

ITS A PASSION.  IT’S SOMETHING YOU THINK ABOUT EVEN WHEN YOU ARE NOT WORKING.

People can forget that being a Care Assistant is more than just a job, it is a career – and one that is beyond reproach.  The responsibilities are massive, but the rewards are completely immeasurable.

Why? Simple.  Family is the most important part of our lives.  Without family we are alone.  Without family we are lost.  So, what happens when your family gets older and needs help?  We cannot always be there as much as we want so we need to know that there are others who can take care of our family and not just help but, make them feel part of it.

Now imagine working in a loving, caring ‘family’ every day and you will start to understand just how unique and rewarding care work really is.

So much attention is given to healthcare workers, particularly in the national press and directed at NHS workers, that often, other Care Assistants are overlooked – and the hard work and dedication that they put in is almost forgotten. Care UK understands this and recognises its staff with its GEMS Employee Awards scheme plus also offers those who want it, fast track internal promotions plus lots of ongoing support for all Carers, through their training and professional development.

But if there is one bit of evidence that what Care workers do, really is beneficial and rewarding, it is the smiles on the faces of the residents they look after. After all, they are the ‘real’ clients.

If you are interested in having a Care career that has rewards as fulfilling as this, then just fill out the contact form below and send us your CV if you have one.

Four members of the 10-strong team were at the Award ceremony on Friday November 30th to receive the Award.

The Best Rehabilitation Facility category is open to gyms and sites who are dedicated purely to the rehabilitation market and/or who employ specially trained consultants to deal with GP referrals. Neurokinex was chosen as a finalist from 100s of entries and was up against four other finalists.

Neurokinex underwent a rigorous assessment process, which involved a site visit by a member of the awards’ team who toured the facility, chatted to clients and staff and examined all areas of the business. Detailed reports were then compiled and passed on to an expert judging panel which decided the winners.

Neurokinex Gatwick team receives National Fitness Award for Best Rehabilitation Facility

“I am very proud and happy that our Gatwick team has won this very important award,”

says Harvey Sihota, founder and director of Neurokinex.

“This achievement is testament to the hard work of the entire team. We know our ground-breaking protocols and activity-based rehabilitation therapies are redefining possibilities for adults and children with spinal cord injury. But to have this independent validation from industry experts that our work is of a national award-winning quality is an honour: I am delighted our work has been recognised this way.”

Neurokinex www.neurokinex.org is a charity and a not-for-profit organisation.

The Gatwick site, which opened in 2016, sets out to redefine possibilities for people with a spinal cord injury.

Its programmes stimulate and load the entire nervous and musculoskeletal systems through carefully crafted, task-specific exercises with the assistance of skilled therapists. Neurokinex clients take part in activities such as active standing, cycling, walking and rowing, tailored to their neurological impairment.

This offers people a multitude of benefits including improvements in neurological function, muscle bulk and quality, cardiovascular health, strength and stamina, balance and trunk control, skin and bone health, range of motion and psychological wellbeing.

“Neurokinex stood out to us as a life-changing facility which combines cutting edge tech with highly-skilled and compassionate trainers,” says Judith Halkerston, Event Director, National Fitness Awards.

“It is evident that Neurokinex is changing the lives of people with spinal cord injury. Its broad client base of adults and children as young as 18 months, plus international clients who are travelling to the facility for this treatment, proves that it is offering something very special indeed. They should be very proud of their achievement and I wish them continued success going forwards.”
