Make Care Matter - because small things make a huge difference

If you want your career to involve doing something that people genuinely appreciate, whether you are an experienced carer or are looking to start a new career; we would love to hear from you.

Working in care is far more than just a job. It is interaction, communication and relationship building. The enjoyment of activities, sharing of stories and memories, all whilst learning from the vast life experience of the people you support.

As a Care and Support Worker at Springhill Court, no two days are the same. You will provide personal care, which is typically long term assistance to people either living in an Extra Care facility, elderly person's home or in their own home. Your role will be to deliver care and support plans whilst continuing to encourage people to remain independent and in control of their own well-being. Working as part of a small, supportive team, you will work under clear instructions and guidance from senior colleagues.

The positive impact you can make to the lives of others is invaluable. It will make a difference to your day because you're making a difference to theirs. Maintaining dignity, choice and control, respecting human rights and maximising the independence and wellbeing of those you support is key. You will have the opportunity to meet and work with a variety of different people including relatives and friends. If they're happy and their families are happy, you will be too.

There is an element of flexibility required for the role and as part of a 7 day service, on a rota basis, you will be required to work some evenings and alternate weekends for which we will pay an enhancement. We could help you to achieve a better work life balance, perhaps enabling you to pursue other employment, hobbies or interests outside of work.

If you do not already hold the Level 2 in Health and Social Care or the QCF Level 2 Diploma in Health & Social Care, that isn’t a problem! All we ask is for your commitment to study the qualification with full support and training from us to help you to develop. Staff development is important to us so we will also pay for you to complete it via our apprenticeship training route.

If you are joining us pre - April 2019 you can expect the hourly rate to be £8.68 - £9.01. From April 2019 you will be paid in the line with our 2019 pay award rising up to £9.36 - £9.55 per hour.

We offer a range of financial benefits and a one-off payment of up to 10% of salary for exceptional candidates may be payable. This could mean an upfront payment of up to £1,700 when you join us!
