Join our team working as an on-call Night Support Worker._ 2 nights per week are available (Monday, Tuesday or Wednesdays) or Sunday nights. All on-call night care shifts are 11 hours, from 9.30pm to 8.30am.
We offer excellent rates of pay and lovely working conditions.
We are now recruiting for a permanent addition to this small care team looking after a delightful boy with complex care and medical needs. Two weekday on-call night shifts (Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday) are required, as well as one weekend on-call night shift (Sunday), with additional cover hours also available.
- Our client is a 12-year-old cheeky chap who lives at home with his mum and dad.
- He has cerebral palsy and additional medical needs; he is tube fed and is a wheelchair user.
- He is supported by a home care team who work closely with Mum and Dad who are instrumental in their son’s care.
- We are seeking a calm, engaging and experienced support worker to join his team.
You will get our client ready for bed, set up his bedroom and sleep system, ensuring he is comfortable and settle him to sleep. As this is an On-Call Night you can then go to bed, in the carer’s room, however you will need to be alert to his waking during the night via a CCTV monitor. He is often disturbed a couple of times and can take time to settle back down; he may need repositioning to help him drift back off to sleep. In the morning, you’ll assist with the usual routine and help get him ready for school.
The position will suit a confident, reliable and caring person who has flexibility to fit into the team and support the family with the care hours required. There is the possibility also to accompany our client and his family on holidays in the UK or abroad. Additional hours can be available, to be discussed during interview.
Candidates will ideally be experienced in supporting clients with additional needs, although specific training will also be provided. You will need your own transport to travel to the family home for shifts.
All applicants invited for an interview will be asked to provide documentary evidence confirming your right to work in the UK, and posts offered are subject to satisfactory references and successful enhanced DBS checks.

You will be required to complete an induction and training programme which includes safeguarding best practice.
