There is nothing casual about our approach to casual staff! We know our casual staff are some of the most skilled and hardest working people on our team – picking up shifts to support our teams deliver high-quality care to the people we support.
The current pandemic has brought restrictions to staff movement to keep staff and the people we support safe. Current Government guidance states that care staff can work at one only setting/location within the Health & Social Care sector. This includes work across different organisations. Therefore, if you are successful you will be allocated to one of our services to work at regularly.
We are currently looking for candidates that can work in the following areas:
- Longwell Green
- St George
- Little Stoke
We offer induction shifts in a named service, full medication competency, paid training sessions and an extremely competitive hourly rate – including extra pay for sleep-ins. Almost 90% of our services are rated Good or Outstanding by CQC, so you can be confident you will be working alongside some of the best teams in the West!Provider Details:
Being casual means that you will choose when to work; being able to accommodate it around other work commitments, studies or caring responsibilities.
We understand that people want casual work for a variety of reasons, whether that’s to supplement a part-time job or study elsewhere, or as part of juggling child-care; which is also why we interview every week so that you won’t be kept hanging around if you are shortlisted. Plus, if you can’t make one interview date, there is another along really quickly.
As a Casual Support Worker, you will be working with the people we support in our Learning Disability, Mental Health or Eldercare residential or Supported Living services to develop their independence and support them live the way they choose.
Due to the current pandemic there are not many opportunities to be out and about, so our teams have got creative designing a wide range of activities to suit the interests and needs of the people living at our services – movie sessions, arts & crafts, virtual music sessions, social Zoom meetings… you name it!About you:
