HEALTH AND CARE RESERVISTS - NO CARE EXPERIENCE REQUIRED

COULD YOU SPARE SOME TIME THIS WINTER TO STEP IN AND SUPPORT LOCAL CARE SERVICES AT CRITICAL TIMES? DO YOU REALLY WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE BUT CAN’T COMMIT FULL TIME, JUST NOW AND AGAIN?

CALLING ANYONE INTERESTED IN SUPPORTING OUR AMAZING NHS AND SOCIAL CARE TEAMS – YOU DON’T NEED PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE IN CARE, JUST KINDNESS AND COMPASSION. WE WILL PROVIDE FULL TRAINING TO ENABLE YOU TO WORK IN A CARE HOME SETTING OR TO HELP CARE FOR INDIVIDUALS IN THEIR OWN HOME

JUST STEPPING FORWARD FOR A FEW HOURS ONCE OR TWICE A MONTH COULD MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE TO THE LIVES OF OUR MOST VULNERABLE ADULTS

We are currently looking for people to join our special bank of reservists, working across Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire.

We will provide:

  • COMPREHENSIVE PAID TRAINING / SHADOWING PACKAGE TO MEET YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS [some spaces currently available mid-January)
  • GENEROUS HOURLY RATE
  • OUTSTANDING WELLBEING SUPPORT; WE’LL LOOK AFTER YOU EVERY STEP OF WAY
  • PROVISION OF FULL PPE
  • FLEXIBILITY – YOU CHOOSE WHEN TO WORK TO FIT IN ALONGSIDE EXISTING COMMITMENTS

It doesn’t matter what your background is; you may be in work or you may have retired; you may have worked in the care sector previously or never at all….we are simply looking for people who are keen to give something back and who are willing to step forward from time to time. All that we ask is that you are 18 years +, ideally with access to a car. You should be kind and empathetic and yet also resilient and able to work independently across our diverse community. A sense of humour goes a long way too !

Please note that our Reservists will also be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (unless exemptions apply)

We would love to tell you so much more about this role and how you may be able to help – please contact us today via ICSRecruitment@MPFT.nhs.uk
