Job description

We want you to join us!

As a Support Worker in Landolph, Saltash and the surrounds, you’ll reap the rewards of enabling people to live every day to its fullest potential. You'll work harmoniously as part of a team of health and social care professionals to provide vital care to vulnerable people in your area. You'll be in charge of aiding service users with personal care tasks, feeding and PEG care, making up beds, posture care, clinical needs, social activities and any other services required. 

Perks

  • An hourly rate of up to £12.52, including holiday pay
  • Get paid as soon as you finish a shift with instant Flexi Pay
  • Free uniform and DBS check
  • Fixed hours on a rota basis
  • Introduce a Friend - Receive up to £500 when you introduce a friend or family member
  • An immersive learning experience through Newcross World, our app-based training platform

What is Flexi Pay?

Our Flexi Pay app feature allows our healthcare staff to gain an instant advance of up to 50% of the value of their existing shifts even on weekends and bank holidays. Simply submit your timesheets through our HealthForceGo® app.

Minimum requirements 

To apply for this rewarding role, you will need to have a minimum of 3 months of prior experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one. This will ensure you have an emotional and clinical understanding of what it takes to deliver home care.

You’ll need to be an approachable and understanding people person, ready to become a key part of your service users’ support network. You may need to assist clients with limited mobility, however, if you do not have a valid Moving and Handling certificate, we can provide relevant training modules for you to complete in the induction process. Access to your own vehicle is desirable but not required, and the right to work in the UK is essential.
