Relief Support Workers needed in Welwyn Garden City
Are you looking for a role which offers you flexibility, training, career development and the chance to make a life changing impact?
Dimensions are currently looking for people to join our established care teams in Welwyn Garden City on a relief basis, supporting people with learning disabilities and autism. We’re looking for people who are caring, ambitious, thoughtful and kind.
As a relief Support Worker you will have the opportunity to accept shifts not only in Welwyn Garden but across the whole of the Hertfordshire/Bedfordshire area, but we’re also currently recruiting for a specific service in the AL post code area, where you will be supporting a fabulous gentleman in his early 20's who loves food, videos and the simpsons.
Whether you’re interested in joining the team in general, or you’d specifically like to work with this gentleman, we’d love to hear from you!
As a relief Support Worker you will be supporting people to achieve their goals, which includes engaging in the activities they enjoy. Whilst everyone’s needs are different, you can expect to provide support with personal care, meal preparation, medication administration, grocery shopping and household tasks including cooking, cleaning and laundry.
The relief pay rate for Hertfordshire is £8.91 per hour. As a relief Support Worker, your annual leave is accrued for each hour that you work and paid to you on a monthly basis, meaning you will be receiving £9.99 per hour in total.
Shifts can vary and include long days, short days, sleepovers and waking nights, so there are bound to be shifts to suit your availability. Whilst there is no obligation to accept individual shifts, we do ask that people are committed to accepting shifts on a semi regular basis to support our permanent teams and to ensure consistent care for the people we support.
We recruit based on values so whilst previous experience is always welcome, it’s certainly not essential as full training will be provided.
