Job description

Is building meaningful and lasting relationships with the people you care for important to you?

As a Support Worker in Birmingham and the surrounding area, you’ll reap the rewards of enabling people to live every day to its fullest potential. You'll work harmoniously as part of a health and social care team to provide vital care to vulnerable people within their own homes. Your various responsibilities will include assisting with clinical needs, medication support, PEG care, tracheostomy care, social activities and any additional services required.

Shift patterns include day shifts (9:30am-7pm / 8am-8pm) and night shifts (10pm-7am / 8pm-8am).

Do you meet the requirements?

You'll be a compassionate Support Worker with at least 3 months experience of caring professionally or for a loved one under your belt, a valid certificate in Moving and Handling, and the right to live and work in the UK. We also expect you to demonstrate our core values of positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness on every shift. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement.

Please note: To work in a care home in England from 11 November 2021, the post holder is required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 unless clinically exempt.
