We’re Hiring
We're looking for a talented Support Worker to join our dynamic team of carers — someone who has a real desire and passion for care.

If you’re looking to develop a career in caring you could be exactly what we're looking for.

Please note: In this position you'll be required to work a minimum of three shifts a week (minimum of 15 hours), which must incorporate evenings and weekends.

More details will be provided upon application.

The Role
The Support Worker role is field-based, covering the Matlock, Darley Dale and Bakewell area. Reporting to the Manager you will be primarily responsible for attending a number of care visits and providing high quality care to a range of different people across that area.

You'll also be tasked with the following:

- Attending care visits

- Providing personal care to clients

- Supporting lifestyle of clients

- Doing light household duties at the client’s homes

-Recording information effectively onto the systems

The Candidate
The ideal candidate for the Support Worker role will have some experience of caring for someone and a natural, pleasant, helpful manner.

Full training on all key subjects will be provided and NVQs in care will be offered – but we are looking for someone with a real desire to work in social care.

We are specifically looking for someone who is:

  • Kind & caring
  • Highly organised
  • Able to listen & empathise with a variety of people
  • Comfortable using computers & smartphones

 

The Company
Established in 1999, we are a well-established domiciliary care provider covering the Peak District region and we are looking to expand our services in and around Matlock.

We are a company that people want to work for because we offer regular working patterns, enabling a good work/life balance; we offer fantastic opportunities for progression and nationally recognised qualifications. 

Our friendly, caring team is approachable and visible, and our management team is very accessible. In addition, during the pandemic the safety of our staff and service users has been, and remains, at the forefront of everything we do.

 

The Package
Basic salary: £18,304 to £20,800 (for 40 hours/week work) minimum of 15 hours per week available at a rate of £8.30 to £10.00 an hour, depending upon experience.
