We have full time and part time vacancies avaliable, and are looking to welcome someone new to our team.

The reablement team provides a life changing service to people by helping them to regain or attain as much independence as they can in their own homes.

Our support workers do this by motivating and inspiring people to re-learn daily skills and enhance their quality of life.

You will be fully trained to assist our service users to meet their care needs, which can range from motivational support to personal care.

You will work to individualised goal plans, with the aim of encouraging service users to do these things for themselves, wherever possible. We also promote and supply tech equipment to help people.

• Generous mileage allowance of 30p per mile
• 24 days annual leave entitlement, plus bank holidays (pro rata)
• Membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme
• Up to £3000 retention bonus after 3 years’ service (T&C’s apply)
• Professional career development
• Excellent management support.

The role involves travel across Peterborough, so you must be a car driver and have access to a vehicle.

We currently have a 35 hour position and a 26 hour position (both split-shifts) and a 16 hour evening-only position avaliable, with 9 day fortnights on a 2 week rota.

To be considered for this role please upload your CV ensuring that your email adress is included. Please note that we will require you to complete a second application form.

Applications will be reviewed regularly, so don't wait to apply! Please bear in mind that a full job history is required and any gaps in employment will need to be clearly explained. We look forward to hearing from you.

Candidates will be progressed shortly after they apply, and the opportunity will be filled as soon as we identify a suitable candidate, which may be before the closing date. So please don't hesitate, we want to speak to you now!
