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, supporting adults with a learning disability or autism. Relief staff members work shifts that fit in with your lifestyle, giving you flexibity and us additional staff coverage when most needed.
You will be supporting in one of our care homes, with a range of activities from the everyday living needs and ‘must dos’ (such as assisting with medications, supporting with attending health and medical appointments, moving and handling and PBS support), through to the lighter side of life doing things like supporting individuals going to the cinema, taking a walk to the local shops to get magazines, swimming, helping to cook delicious healthy meals and getting involved with arts and crafts.
You'll also be supporting our adults with personal development through taking part in our highly praised training program.
How Relief hours work
The Relief (Bank) post supports the permanent rota staff by completing shifts that are vacant due to annual leave, training and other staff absences. As such, hours are non-specific but your manager 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, but additional opportunities also come up due to unexpected staff absences
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.
