Carer Respite Service – Support Workers -  £8.18 per hour

Due to the demand of our carer respite service we are looking to recruit several support workers, both male and female.

The support workers take the place of the informal carer which gives people who are caring for an older relative or friend the chance to have a break, knowing that their relative or friend is in safe hands. Aside from giving the informal carers a break you will also increase social contact for the cared for person.

The successful candidates will need to have a full driving licence and access to a car and have business insurance so as to take clients out.  You will need to be flexible and have an understanding of the needs of older and vulnerable adults, especially those with dementia and disabilities.  Support workers are expected to attend regular training sessions throughout the year and will be paid to do so.  Support workers need to be compassionate and have good organisational skills.  An enhanced DBS will be required. See attached job description for further details.
