Support Worker - Acquired Brain Injury
Are you looking for between 12 and 20 hours a week in a rewarding role, providing assistance and support to someone with an acquired brain injury?
Our ideal candidate is someone confident, experienced with providing individual one-to-one support, able to deal with potentially challenging situations and has good problem-solving skills.
Our client is fiercely independent, fully mobile and capable of living a full life. However, she can find difficulty on a day to day basis with routine tasks involving communication such as making and attending doctors’ appointments, making purchases and placing orders online, booking holidays and organising travel.
A typical day may involve you accompanying our client to a doctor’s appointment, followed by some time spent looking for and applying for part time work, and ending up with helping our client transfer some of her paperwork onto her computer. On another day you may accompany her to a learning and skills centre, go shopping and book an upcoming holiday.
We have a 40 hour a week package of support with a single client that we would like to share between 2 or 3 people. Support is required Tuesday to Sunday (inclusive) with availability required between the hours of 08.00 and 20.00. Flexibility from week to week as to when the hours are worked is essential.
What we offer:
£10.70 after 7pm Saturday and all day Sunday and £9.85 at other times per hour PLUS a market leading 40p per mile for your work travel.
We pay for your DBS checks and for your time to attend staff induction and training the same month you start - so you earn straight away.
You will need a full driving licence and have access to your own transport (with business use added to your car insurance policy).
