At North Yorkshire
Council our priority is the people we support and making a difference to them.
We
are currently looking to recruit care and support workers and we are looking for
people with the right values and behaviours to join us– could this be you?

 

You
don’t need to have previous experience of working in care, nor do you need
qualifications – we would be delighted to work with you to help you become an
excellent care worker.
 

 

We’re
keen to recruit someone who is passionate about working in care and who can
help us ensure our workplace values are at the heart of everything we do.
Above
all we want someone that shares our values.

 

These are:

  • Dignity
    and respect
  • Learning
    and reflection
  • Working
    together
  • Commitment
    to quality care and support

 

 

Are
these values important to you? If so, we would love to hear from you!
We
will give you all the training and support you need. You will be supported by
us to make a difference by not only providing personal care to the people we
support but supporting them to take part in a wide range of activities,
promoting independence along the way.

 

The duties are varied and no two days
will be the same. Our residents are individuals and they all deserve to be
treated as such.

 

 

What is Reablement
Reablement
plays a major part in reshaping the future of care and support – helping people
to live longer, healthier and more independent lives in their own homes.
 

 

It
is a little different from the traditional residential care associated with
care work. We support people to do things for themselves again, by maintaining
and improving independence enabling more fulfilled lives in their own homes.
Working together with the person towards personal goals and outcomes which
would improve their lives.

 

Reablement
centres on recovery, supporting people with personal goals to be achieved typically
up to 6 weeks. You will work with service users to develop their skills and
confidence to achieve daily independent living. There may be an element of
personal involved to look at ways to allow people to become independent with
this. Your focus will be to enable each individual to achieve their goals and
regain their health and independence. Working with other colleagues such as
Occupational Therapists and Social Workers, you will contribute to person
centred support plans and ongoing progress reviews.
This
is an extremely rewarding role where you can realise the impact of the great
work you do on a daily basis – you could be part of our team and share these
great experiences with the people you support.
 

 

 

Shift
patterns include a range of early shifts (approx. 7:00am – 1:30pm/ 3pm), late
shifts (approx. 3pm – 10.00pm) and weekend working.

 

 

We offer a range of benefits
including:

  • You
    will be paid for the hours you work including travel and not just for the
    contact you have with your clients & able to claim your mileage (45p per
    mile).
  • Full
    support to achieve a Diploma level 2 in Health & Social Care.
  • Extensive
    training and learning.
  • Opportunities
    for progression into other NYC roles.
  • Potential
    to explore other specialisms such as learning disabilities and mental health.
  • DBS
    clearance fully paid for by us.
  • Pay
    based on experience and qualifications, with the opportunity for progression
  • Generous
    mileage allowance for any travel incurred as part of the role.
  • Generous
    holiday entitlement starting at 28 days per year, increasing by length of
    service.
  • Discount
    platforms from high street and local retailers, child care vouchers, home technology
    schemes, leisure membership – we make your pay go further.
  • Access
    to an exceptional secure, defined benefits and flexible employee pension scheme.
