Relief Support Worker

£10.33 per hour*


Are you looking for a career where you can make a real and meaningful difference to the lives of others but you’re not able to commit to a permanent role? Perhaps you’re considering a permanent role in the future but right now you need the flexibility to work around other commitments?

Joining as a Relief Support Worker at Dimensions is a fantastic career choice that allows you to do just that - and you’ll receive full training and support every step of the way!

Whilst you’re under no obligation to accept shifts, we do ask that you’re committed to supporting our permanent teams by working shifts where possible. Relief Support Workers are crucial members of the team that ensure consistent care across all services during busy periods and when permanent staff are unwell or on leave, and you really do make the world of difference – seeing a friendly and familiar face is so important to the people we support when permanent team members aren’t available.

If this sounds like just the role you’re looking for, then why not apply now to join our fabulous relief team in Gateshead.  

The Opportunity:

We’re currently supporting a young lady with a learning disability and autism to live her life the way she chooses. You will be supporting her to engage in the activities she enjoys such as playing computer games, going shopping, listening to music, spending time with her nieces, and going dog training.

During a typical shift you can expect to support this young lady with her medication, behaviours, budgeting, food shopping and household tasks including cooking, cleaning and laundry.


*The base pay rate for a relief role in Gateshead is £9.22 per hour. As a Relief Support Worker, your annual leave is accrued at 12.07% for each hour that you work and paid to you monthly, bringing each hour you work to £10.33.


Start at 9am one day and finish at 9am the following day with a sleep over shift included. Day shifts start at 11am and finish at 7pm.

If you have any questions or would like further information about the role, please contact Jane on 07825 844 404.
