Tasks are varied and are likely to include supporting with personal care, assisting with medication, preparation and cooking of meals, together with any other activity appropriate to the individuals needs.

If you are caring, friendly, positive and cheerful with excellent communication skills and an ability to work with minimum supervision, this could be a very rewarding role for you. We provide more than just a job, we offer fantastic training, guaranteed hours, pension scheme with ongoing support and learning. Flexibility is essential.

A range of contracts are available in paid blocks of at least 3.5 hours.

A current full UK driving licence and use of your own vehicle is essential However, if you have a disability which precludes you from holding a driving licence consideration will be given if alternative transport can be arranged.

An SVQ level 2 in Social Care or equivalent is desirable but not essential initially as full training will be provided.
