Are you looking for a rewarding but flexible work opportunity?

Our services support adults who have varying degrees of learning disabilities, age related frailties and complex needs.

We are looking to recruit several Relief Day Service Care Workers who can work in any or all our services across Nottinghamshire. The services are based in Mansfield; Ashfield; Bingham; Newark; Ollerton; Chilwell; Arnold; Netherfield and two in Worksop. The working day is from 8am-5pm and you may be required to work all or part of this day.

As a Relief Care Worker, you’ll provide care and support to individuals using our services. This will involve providing assistance with personal care and engaging in activities that are important to the people you are working with. Every day is busy, and you will provide flexible support to this combined group of individuals in response to their personal, physical and emotional needs

In return, Nottinghamshire County Council offers fair and competitive rates of pay, a good annual leave allowance and excellent training and development to support with your career development.

If you are looking for flexibility in working hours, then this will be a great opportunity for you. Experience is not necessary for this relief role, as you will attend mandatory induction training. What is necessary are the right values, behaviour and attitude towards working with older people and those who have a learning disability.

Please contact Julie Carby (Team Manager) on 0115 8044660 for further information.

Appointment to this post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check.
