Relief Support Worker

£9.50 per hour*


Are you looking for a career where you can make a real and meaningful difference to the lives of others, but you are 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?

Relief work offers ultimate flexibility - with no obligation to accept shifts you can fit your work around your personal commitments.  Whether you have supported people with learning disabilities before, or you are looking for a change of career, we would love to hear from you!

The Role:

We’re currently recruiting Relief Support Workers for our fun and friendly teams in Wakefield, where we support people who have learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, emotional and mental health needs, to live their lives as independently as possible!

The level of support we provide varies from person to person but typically includes personal care, medication administration, budgeting, cooking, cleaning, and laundry. Aside from supporting with daily routines, we also have so much fun getting involved in the activities and hobbies that the people we support enjoy, from going out to dinner, going to gigs and concerts, going on holidays to BBQs with friends and family, playing on computer games and watching movies – no two days are the same for a Relief Support Worker!

We’re looking for people who are open and able to adapt to supporting people across our supported living and outreach services.  

The Pay:

As a relief worker, your base rate of pay will be £9.50 per hour. You will also accrue an annual leave entitlement of 12.07% per hour you work which will be paid out to you in a lump sum on a monthly basis – this means your total rate of pay equates to either £10.65 per hour.
