Relief Support Worker / Care Worker 

It’s not just a job, it’s a life experience. Join them and help them change lives. 

Our client is a national charity that's been supporting people with learning disabilities since 1962. They put the people they support at the centre of everything they do and use their experience to work in partnership with them to provide personalised services to more than 2500 people. 

Sometimes it’s challenging, but it’s always rewarding. You’ll go to work knowing that you’re making a positive difference to someone’s life. And you’ll be working in a team of skilled, dedicated colleagues who’ll support you all the way. 

Position: Relief Worker 
Location: Hythe, Kent 
Hours: Flexible 
Salary: £7.50 per hour aged 21 and over or £7.26 between the ages of 18-20 (both plus 12.07% in lieu of holiday pay) 

Closing date: Saturday 31st March 2018 
Interview date to be confirmed 

About the role: 

They provide 24/7 support to some people, as a Relief Worker you will be requested to cover shifts regularly on an ad hoc basis. You are not an employee of the Charity and remain a 'Worker' for the duration of each individual contract you undertake for them. 

As a Relief Support Worker you’ll be supporting adults with learning disabilities to live the best life possible. In these roles, everything you do will enable people to have choices about their own lives, creating flexible services that meet people’s needs and always looking for the best way of doing things. 

There’s no such thing as a “typical day” for one of their Relief Support Workers. You never know what you might end up doing. You could be supporting someone to make their breakfast in the morning, go swimming or to a local cafe in the afternoon – or even helping them plan their birthday party or a family event. 

About you: 

You don’t need experience of support work or any special qualifications for this job - you’ll get plenty of training along the way. It’s great if you already have experience of learning disabilities, autism or dementia, but this is by no means essential. What matters most is your positive attitude to life and your desire to support people to live their life with as much independence, choice, dignity and control as possible. 

What they offer: 

They’ll give you a comprehensive induction, full training and support along the way. With Investors in People and Skills for Care accreditation they are committed to investing in their teams to ensure they have the specialist skills and expertise needed to support others to live the best life possible.
