Casual Carer/Support Workers - Bristol, South Gloucestershire & North Somerset
Bristol, South Gloucestershire & North Somerset
£9.26 per hour
Job Ref: BA/118
Milestones Trust provides care and support to people with learning difficulties, mental health needs and dementia.
There is nothing casual about our approach to casual staff! We know our casual staff are some of the most skilled and hardest working people on our team – picking up shifts across our wide range of Learning Disability and Mental Health services, they can be supporting someone to go swimming in Bradley Stoke one day and shopping in Fishponds the next, assisting someone with a PEG feed on Tuesday and going through relaxation exercises in Yate with someone else on Wednesday. It is varied work, and requires someone who not only has experience but can build relationships quickly and effectively.
We also understand that people want casual work for a variety of reasons, whether that’s to supplement a part-time job or study elsewhere, or as part of juggling child-care. We can offer shifts every day of the week, and usually at times which will fit in with your busy schedule – the same reason we interview every week (which means you won’t be kept hanging around if you are shortlisted, plus if you can’t make one interview date there is another along really quickly).
We offer induction shifts in a named home, full medication competency, cutting edge e-assessments, paid training sessions and an extremely competitive hourly rate - including extra pay for sleep-ins. Almost 90% of our services are rated Good or Outstanding by CQC, so you can be confident you will be working alongside some of the best teams in the West!
**New, we are pleased to be able to offer a small number of places to people with limited experience, to be able to work through their Care Certificate and reach the same standards as our more experienced casual workers. There are places available in Kingswood and Brentry – please indicate on your application if you would like to be considered for one of these places.**
**Although most of our services are in the central Bristol/South Glos area, some do lie outside. We would particularly welcome applications from workers based in (or able to travel to) Weston-super-Mare, Brentry, and Yate.”
