Recruitment Open Day

Thursday 29 September 2022

Phoenix Centre, Lewes, BN7 2RD

Drop in anytime between 11am and 4pm

Closing date:  Sunday 30 October 2022

Edith used to be a nurse and helped others in her life and now she needs your help! Edith has had a fall and needs your support to regain her living skills at home to remain independent.

We will teach you the skills to help support Edith to remain at home and how to encourage her to participate with her rehabilitation programme.

The training is free and there are lots of opportunities to progress.

You just need to be able to listen, be patient, kind and caring. You will hear their life stories and now you will be part of their story of recovery.

Feel rewarded and help someone get back on their feet.

You will be part of a team and work alongside other professionals. You may initially be providing some personal and intimate care and give emotional support to help clients regain the skills and confidence they need to manage these everyday tasks themselves.

There are permanent contracts available ranging from 18 to 30 hours per week. You will be required to work alternate weekends and a mix of early and late shifts. Full time staff receive 24 days holiday plus bank holidays – this will be pro-rata for part time staff.

You will be required to have a full driving licence.
