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.
We are currently looking for care workers to join us at 5 Whitby Road care home based in Pickering. We have various hours available per week contracts so whatever you are looking for and whatever your existing commitments are, we have something for you!
We also have relief contracts which can be of mutual benefit to both sides. You choose what shifts you can do and when you can do them. Just let us know your availability. You may have some time during college or university holidays, you may want to do a shift once the children are at school, or you might just want some additional income.
As a Care and Support Worker, no two days are the same. 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.
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 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’ve got experience, that’s great, we’d love to hear from you. If not, don’t worry, we’ll give you all the help and support you need to settle in quickly. If you do not already hold the Level 2 qualification in Health and Social Care that isn’t a problem we will support you to achieve this through our apprenticeship training route.
At NYCC we provide a wide range of staff benefits, some of which include:
– Enhancement for weekend working / night working
– Starting salary dependent on experience and qualifications
– Training and support which will include minimum training to Level 2 in Social Care
– Competitive rate of pay with pay progression
– Access to range of salary sacrifice schemes and discounts including green car scheme, childcare vouchers and home
