We are now seeking a Care and Support Worker to join our Retirement Living scheme Bushfield Court in Wolverhampton on a part time contract, for 28 hours per week.
You’ll be working within our Older Persons Services, offering person centred care and support to customers, promoting choice, independence and empowering them to live a fulfilled and active life.
You'll be responsible for assisting customers with medication and liaising with other professionals to support the customer’s health and wellbeing. Every customer is different with varying support requirements - you can therefore expect to deliver a range of care plans, some of which may involve personal care.

It goes without saying that you’ll be a people person, with the passion and enthusiasm for delivering quality services to vulnerable people. You’ll be able to demonstrate empathy whilst enabling people to maximise their independence.

As well as a competitive salary and generous leave entitlement, you’ll benefit from our CIPD award-winning reward initiative, including a range of voluntary and salary sacrifice benefits, generous pension arrangements, as well as the opportunity to develop your career further.
To apply, please register on our candidate portal and submit a comprehensive CV setting out your career history, supported by a cover letter of no more than one page, which clearly explains how you meet the requirements of this role.
Applications close on 22nd May 2019. Please be advised that we may close this vacancy early, if the need arises.
