Flexible Hours & Shifts
Working hours that suit my lifestyle. That’s when it hits home.
Have you been looking to earn some extra cash, while keeping to your current commitments? Now you can! What’s more, you’ll be making a difference!
This is an exciting time to join Home Group – one of the UK’s Largest Housing providers and be part of our brilliant flexible bank. You’ll be supporting our amazing customers, while picking and choosing the shifts you want to work.
Where you could work
You’ll be helping our vulnerable customers in a variety of services across either Cheltenham, Gloucester or Stroud in our accommodation based services. You might find yourself working with customers with learning disabilities or mental health issues, or young people. Or, you may choose to work in our high and complex services for customers with substance and alcohol needs or offending behaviour.
There is lots for you to do and get involved in, supporting our customers to achieve their hopes and aspirations, working to personalised support plans. You’ll go home each day knowing that you’ve made an amazing difference to vulnerable people’s lives. How amazing is that!
One day you might be helping our customer manage their finance or household tasks, the next you might be off to town to support attending an appointment or later playing ‘walking’ football! Rest assured that wherever you will be working, we will support you all the way!
You thrive both on working with a range of vulnerable customers, who all have different support needs, as well as working with colleagues across different services!
You’ll be flexible to work at short notice, as you’ll be the one picking your next shift. The great news is that you’ll be gaining loads of experience working in different services or locations. But we do need to be a real people person! Colleagues we’ve had in the past have used this experience as a stepping stone to other roles in the organisation including management roles and in business development, or have used their experience to advance their career in teaching and probation among others!
You may already work with vulnerable adults or have done so in the past, however it’s not a deal-breaker if you haven’t. However to be brilliant, we do need you to have a caring attitude and the desire to learn and make a difference!
How it works
Working on our bank, you’ll be able to pick and choose your shifts - from those available in your area. As busy as you are, you should be able to do this on the go via your mobile device!
At Home Group our pay rates are based on Living Wage Foundation rate (definitely more than some organisations!) That means you’ll be paid a fair hourly rate for every hour that you work and your rate even includes a payment towards your holiday pay!
After you have been paid for your first shift, you’ll even get a chance to stretch your money further when you get access to our brilliant shopping discount scheme!
You’ll even get access to our excellent learning portal to develop your skills further! We’re sure you will find working for us brilliant, so if you want to stick around, you’ll be able to apply for all of our roles!
When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
