Job Description

Our amazing #TeamNew Deer are on the lookout for caring, compassionate and motivated individuals to join them on a full-time, part-time and relief basis. 

The Role

You'll become part of a friendly, welcoming team who supports eight individuals who are all on the Autism spectrum.  There's never a dull moment at New Deer, no two days are ever the same and you'll always be kept on your toes!   

You'll provide invaluable support with all aspects of daily living, including medication, meal preparation, housework and personal care.   As the individuals also love keeping active and being part of their local community, we're also looking for you to be enthusiastic and creative when supporting them with their hobbies and interests too which include walking, swimming and activities at home. 

About You

You don't need experience to start your career with us; we recruit on values and we'll give you all the training you'll need if you're successful.  We'll even put you through your SVQ qualification too!  However, due to the rural location, we will need you to have a driving licence with access to your own vehicle. ??.   ???????

All we’ll need you to bring is: -

  • A caring and compassionate attitude???????
  • The ability to work well in a team
  • Good communication and organisational skills
  • A positive attitude with a willingness to learn
  • Confidence in the use of computers
  • A full driving license and access to your own vehicle

???????Shift Patterns

Shift patterns usually fall between the hours of 0900-1645 and 0800-0800 (includes a sleepover) or 0900-0900 hours (includes a sleepover) 7 days a week.   Your rota will be issued on a 4 week rolling basis and you'll even get every second weekend off!  

???????If working full-time, you will typically work 7-8 sleepovers per month and if part-time it would typically be around 4-5 per month,  ???????Our sleepover shifts don’t fall as part of your contracted hours, so you'll receive an additional payment of £84 for every sleepover shift you work!

Sound interesting?  What are you waiting for?  Apply today, we can't wait to hear from you!

Have any questions?   If you'd like to find out more, please contact Tracy Thomson or Linda Crighton on 01771643838.

Successful candidates will be required to join the Protection of Vulnerable Groups Scheme and be committed to working towards an SVQ in Social Services and Healthcare with the support from our Training Academy.

If you’re successful in joining our team, we will need you to register with the SSSC within 6 months of starting your employment with us.
