What is the job role?

We are currently working with our partner organisation Caremark to recruit Home Support Care & Support Workers across the Coventry area.

You will meet the personal care and support needs of customers in a way that respects the dignity of the individual and promotes their independence.

The care and support provided by our Care and Support Workers is expected to include support that would reasonably be given by members of the client’s family and is not to include tasks that would normally be undertaken by a trained nurse.

In further detail, your key duties and responsibilities will include: 

  • Assisting clients who need help getting up and going to bed in the morning and evenings, including dressing and undressing, washing, bathing and going to the toilet.
  • Helping clients with their mobility and with any physical disabilities, including incontinence and use of personal aids and equipment.
  • Caring  for clients who are temporarily sick and need bed nursing and help with feeding etc.

Due to the nature and locations of work we are currently looking for drivers. We have various shifts available however are particularly looking individuals who can support either the morning shift - 7am-2.30pm or the afternoon shift - 3.30pm - 10pm and/or the weekend.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for caring and compassionate individuals who really want to make a difference to individuals lives and empower our clients to live at home. 

You will be self motivated and well organised and an individual who is caring and sensitive to the needs of others. You will have excellent communication skills and the ability to understand other peoples needs. 

No two days are the same, so it is essential that you are adaptable, flexible and person centred in your approach. 

You do not need to have experience in care as we do offer full training, however it is essential that you have the right attributes, values and passion. 

This really is a rewarding a career in which you can really make a difference and change lives.
