This could be making sure the heating is on, checking there is food in the fridge and making sure they have access to any equipment they may need.

You’ll need previous care experience and the confidence to work with a variety of health and social care professionals. Extensive travel is necessary in this role so you will need to be a driver with access to a car for work.

The rates of pay for the two night care worker positions are equivalent to £10.50 when with a service user but there may be quieter periods whereby no visits are required. During this time we will pay you £7.83 per hour to be available to work / on call and if you are called to work you will switch to £10.50 per hour. Should you wish to make your hours up with day care assistant work we would be able to accommodate this.
