Relief Support Worker
We are seeking caring, reliable and responsive Relief Support Workers to join our team providing person-centred care and support to older people and adults with support needs within an Extra Care Scheme in Bromley.
Extra care housing enables older people to live as independently as possible in a friendly, inclusive and safe environment whilst receiving the care and support they need. We want our service users based in Bromley to lead active and positive lives and to be supported to enjoy physical and mental wellbeing. To achieve this we need responsible, compassionate individuals who can deliver respectful personal care and person-centred support.
You must be able to engage positively with the service users based at our Bromley Common service and their families and to build trusting relationships. Good written and verbal communication skills are essential for this role, as is the ability to provide respectful personalised care.
Previous care experience is essential for the role of Relief Support Worker. We will appreciate your life experience, caring approach and personal qualities as well as relevant skills and experience.
This is a Relief Support Worker position which enables you to pick up shifts at a time that suits you, and is ideal for fitting around personal commitments, study or caring responsibilities.
As a Creative Support Bank Staff member you will have access to our free app which allows you to pick up shifts in any area of the country and provides information on the service and shifts, including directions. You will be paid weekly.
We are a passionate, inclusive and anti-racist organisation. We embrace diversity and encourage applicants from all backgrounds and cultures.
