Job Description

???????Our amazing #TeamSunnybank are now on the lookout for caring, compassionate and flexible colleagues to join them on a permanent (20 or 39 hours per week) and relief basis.

The Role

You'll become part of a friendly, dedicated, fun team who supports four gentlemen with complex learning and physical disabilities who live in their own shared home.  The great thing about this job is no two days are ever the same.  

Your main aim will be supporting each gentleman with their day to day needs, including personal care, shopping, finances, cooking, housework and medication.  You'll also support with their hobbies and interests too, including music, films, in-house activities, going for walks, day trips, the cinema, swimming, discos and arts & crafts.   

About You

You don't need experience to start your career with us; we recruit on values and transferrable skills.  We'll pay you for your training and will give you all the practical skills you'll need.  We'll even fund your SVQ qualification too!

???????All we’ll need you to bring is;

A caring and compassionate attitude
The ability to work well in a team
Great communication and organisational skills
A positive attitude with a willingness to learn
Confidence to get in the water as swimming is a regular activity
The ability to cook, baking is a bonus too
Confidence in the use of computers

Shift Patterns

As we're dedicated to providing around the clock support tailored to the needs of each individual, shift patterns include early mornings, days, evenings, sleepovers, weekends and public holidays.

Typically, you will work 2-4 sleepovers per month.  Our sleepovers don't form part of your contracted hours meaning you will receive an additional payment of £84 for each sleepover that you work!

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

???????We are looking to fill these vacancies as soon as possible and reserve the right to close our advert early if we find suitable candidates before the closing date.  Please apply early to avoid disappointment.

???????Have questions?  Please contact our Lead Practitioner, Deanna on 01224 648954.

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.

Cornerstone welcomes applications from all sections of the community and actively seeks to increase the diversity of our workforce.
