We look at what's involved in care assistant in Brentwood jobs

There are no doubt many of you out there who have a high degree of interest in care assistant in Brentwood jobs, but are you really familiar with the tasks and responsibilities that are involved in such a position? Many people find that care assistant work can prove to be quite overwhelming, so it's important that you know exactly what you're getting yourself into before you set your sights on a particular role.

As a rule, the jobs of care assistant can be quite varied, but for the most part you are going to be dealing with people on a daily basis. This means that you must be able to give off a pleasant and friendly vibe regardless of whether or not you feel like it. For many people this is very hard to do at times, and they are the people who will likely struggle most with this kind of work.

It's certainly not for everyone, but there are plenty of great things about the job. You'll be working with some of the most vulnerable people in British society, including the elderly, young children and disabled or very sick people. It'll be your responsibility to ensure that you help with dispensing or issuing medication correctly, and any chores or things around the house that need to be done.

In many ways you'll be expected to go above and beyond the call of duty. Things can arise that aren't in your job description but which must be dealt with for the good of the person you are caring for, or their family. In some cases it's essential for you to have a full driving license too, so this may be a factor in deciding whether it's for you or not.

You can expect to start off on around £10,000 per year in your role as a care assistant, but this will increase over time to a ceiling of around £17,000. While this may not seem like much, given the time that will be spent in the position, it is often supplemented by the provision of accommodation and food, so it isn't always as low as it initially appears.
