Salary £16,863 - £17,391 pro rata
Pershore Resource Centre is looking to recruit Care Assistants to join our friendly Team. The role involves providing practical and emotional support to adults with learning disabilities, including supporting individuals within the service and while out in the community, and providing support with all aspects of daily living, including personal care.
You will need to be flexible and enthusiastic, with an ability to communicate and record information effectively. Previous experience of supporting people with care and support needs would be an advantage; however an understanding of the needs and rights of people with learning disabilities is essential. We welcome applications from people who are able to use their own initiative but who are also excellent Team players, and who will have a can-do attitude with an ability to support and enable individuals to access a wide range of activities including hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, music, sensory sessions and various other community and building based activities.
You will need to be physically fit as the role involves a significant amount of moving and handling tasks.
In return we will offer you full training, with support and encouragement to develop personally.
Our service operates between 8.45am and 4pm Monday to Friday, and the posts available are:
2x24hr 9.30-3.30pm four days per week
