Are you looking for a rewarding career? As a support worker on our community team, you'll have the opportunity to make a difference for yourself and the people you support.

As a senior part of your role will include:


  • Assessing the needs of service users
  • Co-creating care plans and risk assessments with service users
  • Liaison with other professionals


There are also opportunities for promotion as you gain more experience. You will also be working with your service users on tasks such as personal care, meeting with friends and family, accessing the local community, budgeting, medications and other daily household tasks.


Set days / times available


If you want to ensure you have the perfect work/life balance, we can offer you set days so you always know what you're working:


  • Days (between 7am-5pm) – choose between 2-5 days a week
  • Evenings (between 5pm-11pm) – choose between 2-5 days a week
  • Set days can also be agreed if you prefer to work longer days (ie 10-12 hours), so you get more days off during the week


Here's some of the other highlights of working at Specialist Care Team . . .


• We pay more – We believe in paying a fair price for an outstanding job for our team members. Our rates for seniors start at £9.40 per hour, and they increase if you take on extra responsibilities. We also pay for travel time/training at the full hourly rate and we do not roll up holidays into the hourly rate.


• Flexible working – Whether you have regular driving lessons, play badminton on a Thursday night or need to look after a family member, we understand you may have commitments elsewhere and will always aim to have a flexible approach to your availability


• Guaranteed contract hours – We don't believe in offering 'zero hour' contracts as standard – all of our team members have a guaranteed number of hours each week, which can range anywhere from 8-40 hours depending on whether you want to work part- or full-time.


• Going the extra mile – If you need to travel during work, no matter if it's the bus or using your own vehicle we will reimburse your travel costs (we pay 40p per mile when using your car)


• Investing in you – You need the best tools to carry out a high level of care, and that's why you'll be fully-trained by our in-house team and members of our community team are given a work mobile phone so you can perform to the best of your ability



What we need from you:


As a senior member of the team, you will already have day-to-day experience of the care sector. You may already be a senior elsewhere, or a support worker ready to take on extra responsibilities.


You don’t necessarily need any qualifications – what really matters to us is that you have the right values. We can help you achieve the formal Level 3 and Level 4 qualifications.


Everyone working in social care needs a good standard of English, as well as numeracy and digital skills. You will need to enjoy working in a team and you need to be good at problem solving.


Additional skills required to be join our team include:


  • the ability to be organised
  • good listening and communication skills
  • to understand and follow policies and procedures
  • good writing skills to fill in records
