Job Description

We are looking for an experienced Adult Support Worker to join the Cream Team. You will be working in a supported living scheme for residents with learning disabilities near Cannock. The shifts are 12 hour either days or nights, you decide which shifts and days you wish to work and this can be changed weekly - giving you a great work/life balance!

You will receive excellent benefits such as weekly pay direct into your bank account, free update training, full support from the team back at base, on-line access to rota and payslips, confirmation of all shifts (plus reminders!) via SMS and the opportunity to expand your skills and knowledge.

As a Support Worker your duties will include:

  • Working one to one with an adult who has Learning Disabilities
  • Providing guidance for domestic duties such as meal preparation and cleaning
  • Providing support / encouragement with personal care
  • Promoting independence
  • Community access when required
  • Ensuring the adults you care for enjoy a fulfilling life

To be suitable for this role as a Support Worker, you will need to have:

  • At least 6 months experience working with adults in a Support Worker or Care Assistant role
  • Previous experience with learning and physical disabilities and some challenging behaviour would be an advantage
  • An enhanced DBS covering Adults – ideally with the update service - or we can arrange one for you
  • A passion to deliver great care to motivate and ensure the adults in your care thrive
  • Good spoken English
  • A minimum of 3 year work history so references can be supplied.
  • Two references, one of which must be in social care.

As a Support Worker for Cream Health Care you will receive:

  • Weekly pay direct into your bank account each Friday following the week you worked
  • 28 days annual leave pro rata.  You accrue this based on the hours you have worked at 12% of your pay rate
  • Access to your rotas and payslips on line.  This gives all the detail for the home you are working at for each shift including address, telephone number so you will always be in the know!
  • Confirmation of all shifts you have accepted via SMS so if you have forgotten you only have to look at your phone
  • Mentoring from the office to ensure you thrive in your role
  • Induction – at the start of your first shift at a new home – yes, including fire procedures!

We are keen to hear from you if you have recent experience as a Support Worker, Personal Assistant providing personal care, Care Assistant, Care Worker or a Carer based in Cannock or any of the surrounding areas such as Heath Hayes, Great Wyrley, Huntingdon, Hednesford, Burntwood, Bloxwich, Littlewood or Brownhills.
