We are looking for experienced support workers to work in a variety of settings within Lichfield
Your new company
We are working with a number of residential homes in the Lichfield area, and are looking for experienced healthcare assistants to join their teams to cover 500 hours a week of various temporary shifts. The homes largely focus on providing support to their adult service users with challenging behaviour, dementia and physical disabilities. They all operate on varied shift patterns ranging from long days, short shifts and waking nights.
Your new role
Within the role of a healthcare assistant you will support adults with physical disabilities, dementia and challenging behaviour. Supporting them to live and achieve as much of an independent lifestyle as possible. You will provide physical and emotional support and provide personal care of the highest standard. You will also be ensuring that respect, dignity and confidentiality is maintained at all times and have a person-centred approach to all you do.
What you’ll need to succeed
To be suitable for this role you will need to have relevant and recent experience working with adults with dementia and challenging behaviour within a residential or social care environment. You must ensure you have the ability to travel to Lichfield via your own transport as bus routes are very limited and are not located near the home. You will be able to work a varied shift pattern that includes weekdays, nights and weekends. It is essential that you will be able to provide two relevant social care references, working a minimum of 6 months in the last two years, to meet our compliance requirements. Health and Social Care level 2 is desirable and experience in social care is essential. It is required that you have completed safeguarding and manual handling training and are comfortable using various different hoists.
What you’ll get in return
You will be rewarded by helping the service users maintain their independence and dignity. Also, whilst working through Hays you will benefit from one local point of contact, competitive rates of pay, advice and guidance on CV/application writing and interview technique, free DBS processing and training.
