At Agincare Live-in Care Services we work in partnership with Care Commissioning Groups, Local Authorities, families and next of kin to provide excellent levels of care to our clients across the UK.  We consistently achieve this through recruiting passionate and committed staff that share our values and understand the needs, concerns and expectations of clients and colleagues alike.  This ongoing success has created further opportunity to recruit an additional Care Needs Assessor to the Agincare family.

You will be responsible for establishing a professional relationship with our clients, undertaking their first consultation, completing their initial assessment and compiling the associated first care plan. 

Job Requirements

You must have experience of care needs assessment, a proven track record in care and risk management, a sound knowledge of the health and social care regulatory framework and be passionate about person centred support.  We are looking for a confident and approachable people person, capable of developing positive relationships in the community with our clients and their families.  You will be supported and work very closely with our Customer Relations Team and our Regional Care Managers, so team working is a must. 

You will be working alongside numerous healthcare Professionals and will be required to travel to our clients in their own homes across your defined region - so you will need your own transport and must be willing to travel large distances when required.  This role requires a balance between working in the field and working from home, so you will need to be flexible and organised.

In return, no two days will be the same and you will gain immense job satisfaction from helping to ensure that our clients are comprehensively assessed and that their first contact with Agincare is a positive and rewarding one.
