Are you looking for a new fulfilling career opportunity?

The reablement team provides a life changing service to people by helping them to regain or attain as much independence as they can in their own homes.

Our support workers do this by motivating and inspiring people to re-learn daily skills and enhance their quality of life.

You will be fully trained to assist our service users to meet their care needs, which can range from motivational support to personal care.

You will work to individualised goal plans, with the aim of encouraging service users to do these things for themselves, wherever possible. We also promote and supply tech equipment to help people.

Preference will be given to candidates with experience in the care sector and we will help support you to reach your full potential by providing you with training, guidance and career development.

We will assist you with gaining your Care Certificate and your Level 2 or 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care, as well as:

• Generous mileage allowance of 30p per mile
• 24 days annual leave entitlement, plus bank holidays (pro rata)
• Membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme
• Up to £3000 retention bonus after 3 years’ service (T&C’s apply)
• Professional career development
• Excellent management support.

The role involves travel across Peterborough, so you must be a car driver and have access to a vehicle.

We have 2 shift patterns available. The first is a 16 hour position working evenings, 17:30-22:00, with 9 day fortnights on a 2 week rota. The second is a 28 hour position with split-shift working 07:30-13:00 and then 16:00:18:30, with 9 day fortnights on a rolling 2 week rota.

To be considered for this role please complete the application form, which can be found in the additional documents section and send this to pccrecruitment@peterborough.gov.uk.

Applications will be reviewed on regularly, so don't wait to apply! Please bear in mind that a full job history is required and any gaps in employment will need to be clearly explained.
