As a leading healthcare agency we are looking for an experienced Adult Support Worker to join the Cream Team.

As a Support Worker your duties will include:

  • Providing guidance for domestic duties such as meal preparation and cleaning
  • Providing assistance / encouragement with personal care
  • Promoting the independence of the service user
  • Community access when required
  • Ensuring the service users enjoy a fulfilling life with social activities

To be suitable for this role you will need to have:

  • At least 6 months experience working with adults in a Support Worker role

  • A passion to deliver great care to motivate and ensure the adults thrive in the environment
  • 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.

In return you will receive:

  • Weekly pay direct into your bank account each Friday following the week you worked
  • 28 days annual leave pro rota.  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!
