Residential Care Worker

Catholic Care is a faith based charity providing care and support to people of all faiths and none. The Charity also employs people of all faiths and none.

Are you looking for a new and rewarding challenge and are committed to making a difference in the lives of adults who have a learning disability. Due to the retirement of a long serving member of staff an opportunity has arisen to join our dedicated team of residential care workers who are committed to delivering a high standard of care in a homely environment, working alongside family members and other professionals.

Due to expansion in our Outreach Service we also have the opportunity to combine this post with working to support older people to live independently in their own homes.

Working at our Residential Home in Leeds, or in the Outreach Service might be just for you. If you value dignity, compassion and teamwork and want to work in an inclusive and innovative environment and beyond, we would welcome an application from you.
