A caring and compassionate attitude
The ability to work well in a team
Confidence to lone work
Great communication and organisational skills
A positive attitude with a willingness to learn
A creative drive to improve the lives of the individuals you support
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. 

 

Our sleepovers are not included in your contracted hours, so you’ll receive an additional sleepover payment of between £84 per night for each sleepover worked!
