About the Role

Home Support Workers

Based: Hastings, Bexhill & Eastbourne
Salary: £8.77 per hour (including holiday allowance)
Hours: Flexible - Bank

Are you:
- Passionate about supporting people
- Great at organising and multi-tasking
- Flexible - with the ability to work during school holidays
- Understanding and empathetic?

Do you have:
- A genuine positive ‘can-do’ attitude 
- Strong communication skills with the ability to interact with a range of people
- Experience of undertaking household tasks
- Spare time and would you like to support someone to remain independent?

We are looking for bank workers to be part of our dynamic team, providing a Home Support Service in Hastings, Bexhill & Eastbourne for Age UK East Sussex. 
- DBS paid if you stay longer than 12 weeks
- Travel paid at 45p per mile from the end of your first appointment to the start of your last
- Paid at full hourly rate when travelling from your first to your last appointment

In this role you will be at the centre of your community, undertaking household chores and other supportive tasks, such as shopping and prescription collection, allowing older people to live a high quality, independent life. You will also be someone who enjoys interacting with others and is able to provide a listening ear, companionship, warmth and understanding.

Paid on an ‘as and when required’ basis, each visit typically last for between 1 and 2 hours - we do not do 15 minute calls.  You’ll be expected to travel to client’s homes, so a full valid UK driving license and access to a car is essential. Ideally you will have a home help background but this is not essential as full training at our Hastings office will be provided.

Applying is just the start of your journey – when you get out and about in your community helping people live independently is when our staff tell us they get the most job satisfaction.
