2 Full-Time Posts (split shift working 8-2 and 4.30-9pm over a 2 week rota. Week 1: working Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Week 2: working Wednesday and Thursday. Includes a shift allowance, and Mileage paid at 0.45 per mile)

3 Part-Time 21 Hours Per Week Posts (Working 8-2 on a 2 week rota. Week 1: working Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Week 2: working Wednesday and Thursday. Mileage is paid at 0.45 per mile)

Our team works with people who have had an event, such as an illness or fall that has affected their confidence and ability to carry out activities of daily living. We work with people for a short period of time (usually 7-10 days) to regain their ability to do some, or all of the things they did before, or to assess for future ongoing needs. We provide support to individuals within their own homes, and in alternative community settings, to promote maximum independence in accordance with reablement plans. This involves working closely with the various teams involved, in supporting our Service Users to remain safely at home.

You will need to have NVQ/QCF level 2 in Care, or be willing to undertake this, or have equivalent demonstrable experience. Effective communication skills are key as this role largely involves face to face work with vulnerable adults, as well as communicating with allied health professionals and other agencies. You will need to work effectively as part of a team, and to be able to work without direct supervision and be self-reliant.

A current driving licence and provision of a motorised vehicle is essential for this post, therefore business insurance will be required. You must also be able to work flexible hours including evenings, weekends and bank holidays.
