For nearly 20 years Richmond Villages have been at the forefront of luxury retirement living. Having won numerous awards for architecture, landscaping and care, we are now seen as the benchmark for retirement villages in the UK.  A totally fresh concept in retirement living, our socially active communities are for people who want to get the most from later life.

  • As a Domiciliary Care Assistant you will join our team of carers and support our residents with daily living activities in a person-centred manner. 
  • You will promote physical and personal independence as well as choice in all activities, and help to provide a comfortable, homely environment.
  • Domiciliary Care Assistants will also attend to the personal needs of our residents – social, emotional and physical – which can involve helping them achieve things to ensure independent living within our village.
  • Excellent customer service and interpersonal skills, and able to work well within a team.
  • Able to provide care that would reasonably be given by members of the residents own family which isn’t expected to include tasks that would normally be undertaken by a trained nurse.
  • Also able to work on own initiative and resolve issues with minimal supervision.
  • Ability to be flexible regarding evening and weekend work.
  • NVQ Level 2 or 3 in Health & Social Care or previous experience required.
