St Elizabeth’s is situated in 68 acres of Hertfordshire parkland between Harlow and Bishop’s Stortford. We support people with Epilepsy and other complex needs from the age of 5 through to 78 in our Children’s Home, School, College, Residential Homes with nursing and Day Centre. Over 150 adults and children call St Elizabeth’s their home making us an inspirational place to do great work.
We currently have Night Care Assistant vacancies within our Adult and Children’s Home. Previous experience in care and relevant qualifications are not essential but would be an advantage. You will need to be comfortable working with adults and children with complex needs. Your excellent communication skills and sensitivity towards others will enable you to thrive in this interesting and rewarding environment.
Our Night teams ensure the safety of adults, children and young people with epilepsy learning disabilities and complex health needs by reacting appropriately to night health monitoring equipment and providing personal care as and when required. Our residents will sleep soundly knowing you are on hand to follow their individual care plan, administer medication (after training) and keep accurate records of any interventions with our residents.
You will be supported in an environment where training and professional development are a fundamental part of our offer. If you join us, we provide initial full training over 6 full days, which includes safeguarding, first aid, epilepsy awareness, MAPA, moving & handling, infection control and food safety with on-going refresher training.
We can offer you a range of staff benefits including:
• Life assurance
