Job Description: Casual Care Assistant
As a leading not-for-profit provider of quality housing for older people, we want to make a hugely positive difference to our customers’ lives. Our home care service at our developments in the Scottish Borders is just one example of how we do this. Due to its success, we’re evolving the service and are looking for enthusiastic and caring staff to help us ensure we can carry on providing quality care.
We pride ourselves on delivering the highest standard of person-centred care in tenants’ own homes. Therefore, you’ll ideally have experience of working with people in care or supported accommodation environments but, above all, you’ll also have first class practical and personal care skills and empathy with the people receiving the service.
You’ll need to be flexible and willing to provide cover as and when required. The service operates during the daytime, evenings and weekends and you’ll be covering staff holidays and absence.
You’ll hold SVQ level 2 in Health and Social Care (Qualified) or be willing to achieve to meet the requirements of the SSSC within regulatory timescales (Unqualified). This post requires PVG Scheme membership (adults).
In return for delivering a fantastic service to our residents, you’ll be a part of an Investors in People and Investors in Diversity organisation. We’re one of the sector’s most forward-thinking organisations that strongly values its staff and its customers.
