job description

Care workers! Are you looking for some variety in your work? Would you like to pick and choose to work the shifts fit in with your plans for the week?

Well, look no further, this is the perfect opportunity for you!

Randstad Care are proud to be working with one of the UK's leading providers of support services for people with diverse needs within community settings. With a variety of locations available in Exeter, and more in the surrounding areas. Working with a variety of different residents, you could be supporting someone with profound and multiple learning disabilities around the home on one shift, and the next you could be going shopping with someone who suffers from mental illness. One thing for sure is that everything shift will be different!

Day shifts, long shifts, evening shifts, morning shifts, sleep-ins and waking nights are regularly on offer. If you are keen to work, there are plenty of shifts on offer!


Job Responsibilities:

As a support worker for this client, you will be providing, physical, emotional and social support adults with a variety of needs. Residents could have learning disabilities, mental illness or physical disabilities. You will play a crucial part in helping service users live happily and fulfilled lives.
Duties will include personal care, everyday household duties and cooking.

Requirements:

Experience in the care sector is essential for these roles. Ideally you will have experience of working with people that have learning disabilities or mental illness but this is not essential. Qualifications in Health and Social Care are helpful but again, not essential. Being caring, empathetic, friendly and having a genuine desire to improve the lives of others are essential qualities.

It is helpful for people to drive and have access to their own transport for these roles due to locations on the outskirts of Exeter, but this is not essential.

By working for Randstad Care as a flexible support worker, you can expect to receive:

A variety of different assignments
Competitive hourly rate..
Holiday pay in addition to your hourly rate
Flexible hours that you choose.
A friendly operations team that will support you, day and night.
