Adult social care staff: a call for workers

Have you previously worked in adult social care and either left the profession or retired and want to help? Are you unqualified but interested in working in social care?

As with all keyworker services in the current coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, care staff are under increasing pressure and it is likely that staff numbers will dramatically reduce due to illness and self-isolation.

Throughout this time our clients still need the right help in place to make sure they are supported and safe. If you are patient, kind and caring and feel you are able to provide this kind of support please contact us.

Who we’re looking for

We need:

  • Support workers with our Joint Community Rehabilitation Team
    Join the JCR to help people stay safe and independent at home, and to regain the skills and confidence they need to live independently and manage everyday tasks themselves.
  • Support workers at one of our short-term rehabilitation centres
    Clients typically stay in short-term care for a period of up to four weeks whilst recovering from injury or illness. Help people in this setting on their road to recovery and independence.

Our offer to you

We will offer:

  • casual contract with flexible hours if needed
  • support, online training and supervision
  • access to IT equipment and tools to undertake the role.

How to apply

We will need to complete with you:

  • a short application form
  • an updated Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check – we can fast track the application for you
  • a reference, which can be done verbally.

You can find a description of the jobs in our adverts below. If you’re interested, please email our Adult Social Care Recruitment Coordinator directly rather than apply online.

For an informal chat about this role, please call 07872 014079 and ask for Michelle.
