We have various shifts available: earlies, noons, teas and lates, 7 days a week and we are happy to work with any availability to ensure your work fits around your other commitments – giving you a great work/life balance. You can choose to have the same hours weekly or work alternate weekends on a 3 day/4 day rota.

We are currently looking for Home Care Assistants to join us, to work either in and around Newcastle-Under-Lyme or south of Hanley in areas such as Stoke-On-Trent, Hartshill, Penkull, Trentham, Barlaston, Longton, Meir, Trent Vale and Hanford.

  • Free DBS
  • Pension scheme
  • Rotas and payslips on-line

About us

Cream Home Care is the brain child of Jenny, the managing director behind the hugely successful local health and social care agency, Cream Health Care. Jenny noticed there was a gap in the home care market when a close friend of hers was at crisis point with her mother, and was desperately looking for help and support to enable her mother to live safely in her own home. From hearing the struggles her friend had, Jenny knew she could do better!

Our priority is always to respect our staff and their right to a fulfilling and rewarding life both inside and outside of work, without offsetting this against the needs of our clients. With this ethos in mind, we will build strong relationships with you by understanding your needs and allocating you clients we know you will connect with and help enhance the clients’ quality of life.

We pride ourselves in only recruiting high quality, dedicated, passionate care staff.

If this sounds like you and you have recent experience as a Support Worker, Personal Assistant, Care Assistant either residential or home care, Care Worker or Community Carer then apply now or call us for more information.

We look forward to hearing from you.
