We are seeking enthusiastic and dedicated Bank Support Workers to join the friendly team in Raglan, Usk. The service is located within 10 miles of Abergavenny and Monmouth and 30 mins from Cwmbran.
Providing a relaxing, fun-loving home to four ladies who experience a range of physical disabilities and /or a Learning Disability. Their home is always bright, happy and cheerful: as the sun fills the open plan design, the mood in the house is always up-lifting. The ladies enjoy listening to music so you could find yourself bopping to the reggae beats of BOB MARLEY or raising the roof to the tunes of ABBA whilst helping in the garden, getting creative with arts and crafts or cooking and baking. Not to mention numerous other activities such as popping to the shops, visiting the local café s and garden centres for a brew and a slice of cake or planning a holiday and enjoying time sightseeing or at the beach!
Does this sound like work?
Yes... the ladies need support with bathing, dressing and medication to ensure they are ready to make the most of each and every-day, and you'll need to be patient and understanding when someone is feeling anxious or upset.
Our pool of Bank staff are vital to ensure that our services are resourced by experienced and familiar staff during periods of expected and unexpected absence (eg holidays, training or sickness).
You will be a dedicated worker who is perhaps not able to join the permanent staff due to other commitments, but would like to be part of the Achieve together family.
You will work on a non-guaranteed hours contract, and called upon (sometimes at short notice) to provide cover to services in your local area. You will be paid each month for the hours you have worked during the previous month.
This position is ideal for someone looking for more flexibility with the hours they can work.
You don’t need to have experience in Health and Social Care, but you do need to be passionate about what you do and show compassion and kindness towards the People we Support.
Does this sound like something you could do?
Your duties will include:
- Supporting individuals to plan and engage in activities in line with their individualised activity planner, which could include holidays, social events, religious and sporting activities, education and employment.
- Maintain the general health, wellbeing and emotional needs of the People we Support.
- Encouraging individuals to access a range of opportunities and experiences.
- Supporting individuals to keep in contact with family and friends, and to participate in social and community activities.
And, of course, you need to ensure that the dignity and choice of the People we Support is preserved at all times.
