We are looking for support workers who are passionate about promoting independence; to provide care and companionship for a gentleman with MS living in his supportive family home in Hereford. He has a keen interest in sport – especially football – puzzles, quizzes and loves Hereford history… could you be the missing piece?
Support hours provided are 9am – 6pm, 7 days a week. We require 2-3 days each week and weekend working on rota. There are some high levels of support required with moving and positioning, catheter care and PEG feeding but for the right candidate experience is not essential as full training and shadow support will be provided to ensure that you are confident in carrying out all responsibilities.
“’A’ is a joy to support; he and his wife are so appreciative and lovely to be around. I know I’ve made a difference every day I’m with them”.
Whilst we are offering this position as a dedicated support post to an individual for those who would prefer a single work location, there are additional hours available with other service users if you are looking for them.
Working in adult social care, you will make a real difference to people’s lives every day.
Applying to work in social care at this time would be a hugely rewarding career choice, with national recognition and increased funding to the sector it’s a time of huge growth.
You don’t need lots of qualifications to start your career in adult social care. All you need is the right values. If you’re kind, honest, thoughtful, and looking to support others with compassion you’re the kind of person we’re looking for.
You will also get to work in an environment that promotes both personal and professional development, supports wellness in the workplace and a good work life balance.
