  • Completing Community Observation check lists.
  • Supporting the Management Team to complete necessary quality assurance audits.
  • Office cover to deal with low level enquires from staff and Service Users.

It is essential that you hold RQF Level 2 or equivalent (eg. NVQ Level 2 in care) and have a minimum of 2 years experience working with vulnerable adults in a domiciliary care setting.

You must also hold a valid full current drivers licence.

An Enhanced Adults Disclosure and Barring (DBS) check will be required for this role.

Our Values; Trust, Unity and Progress make us unique, they define how we do things and are reflected in the way we behave. They are important to us, guiding and shaping our organisational culture. Our values are key to us achieving Sandwell’s Vision 2030 and also guide us when we recruit.
