A £500 Golden Hello* payment is just one of the ways we’ll reward you when you join Barchester’s Kernow House as a Care Assistant.
Kernow House offers support to 84 residents, with excellent learning and progression opportunities for Care Assistants. Residents range in age from 30-80, so there is plenty of diversity in this role. You will support residents with physical and mental health needs, and will be trained in new techniques.
