Relief Support Worker


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!

You’ll receive full training and support every step of the way, making us a fantastic employer if you’re looking for a career change, are re-entering the workforce after a break, or if you have some fantastic experience under your belt already and you’re looking for your next challenge – whatever your level of experience, we’d love to hear from you! 

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, when permanent staff are unwell or on leave and they 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 Sheffield.

You will be supporting people with learning disabilities and autism, to live their lives the way they choose. You will be supporting them to engage in the activities they enjoy which can range from going bowling, going to the cinema, visiting local places of interest, going swimming, enjoying lunches out, attending day centres and supporting family visits to name a few!

Day to day you can expect to support people with their personal care, meal preparation, medication administration, grocery shopping and household tasks including cooking, cleaning and laundry.

The base pay rate for a relief worker in Sheffield is £8.91 per hour but you will accrue annual leave as you work, so it works out to be £9.99 per hour.

Shifts can be day shifts of varying lengths, long shifts with sleepovers and waking night shifts. We provide support 24/7 so shifts could be during the week, at weekends or on bank holidays. 

If you have any questions or would like further information about the role, please contact Sheridan on 07507 128 459.
