‘Just About You’ is a Domestic Service run by Age UK Isle of Wight to help our older Island residents remain independent in their homes for longer. This is an essential service for our Island’s older residents, and all profits raised from the service are donated back into the charity to help fund our essential work here on the Island.
As part of our expansion, we are now looking to recruit more Support Workers to join the team. We currently need Support Workers across the Island. All applicants must be able to drive and have access to transport. Our Support Workers provide a wide range of help such as cleaning, food preparation, laundry, ironing, companionship, dog walking, outings and shopping.
If you are caring and compassionate, are able to empathise with problems faced by older people, their families and carers and have time available to commit to the same clients each week, then we would love to hear from you.
This is a rewarding position and is ideal for someone who needs flexible hours to work around family or other work commitments. Please ensure you state your availability and the amount of hours you ideally are looking for within your application.
The successful applicants will be employed under a casual contract, with the position attracting an hourly rate and paid holiday. Successful applicants will undergo Age UKIW training and are subject to a DBS check.
