Closing date: 05/02/2021
Salary: £8.72 per hour
Employment type: Relief
Could you support people with a learning disability to live more independently? Would you like to make a difference that lasts long after the end of your shift? No experience needed.
You'll be a Relief Support Worker in the Warndon area of Worcester. You'll support adults with a learning disability or autism where you'll take your turn working shifts on a rota, including days, evenings, nights, weekends, bank holidays and some sleep ins.
This is a truly rewarding role where you'll support people to enjoy their favourite hobbies, both at home and out and about as lock-down begins to lift. You'll help them learn new things and live as independently as possible. Some people will require your assistance with intimate care or medication. Don't worry if you don't have any previous experience because we will provide you with all the training and back-up from our specialist teams and your colleagues.
Experience isn’t always necessary. If you have the right attitude, good customer service skills, share our values and are willing to learn, you’re likely to be a great fit. We are looking for people who celebrate differences, and we strive to make all our staff feel included, valued and respected.
How Relief work
The Relief (Bank) post supports the permanent rota staff by completing shifts that are vacant due to annual leave/sickness/training/unforeseen circumstances. As such, hours are non specific but the service will endeavour to balance the needs of the service against your own work/life balance as appropriately as possible.
We normally plan the rotas one month in advance and there is no obligation to accept the work. If you unable to do any shifts you will remain on our Relief register for 3 months before automatically dropping off. Of course the more you put in, the more you will get out of this. Could also be a great way to see if this is the career path for you whilst earning some extra money at the same time!
