Wiltshire Council has a vision to work with people in the community to live the best life they can. The Reablement service is part of this fantastic new approach, and there are opportunities for you to join this empowering, ground-breaking service and influence people's lives in a person centred and positive way.

About the role

You will be working with people in their own homes and play a key role in enabling customers to achieve their goals and objectives. Working alongside dedicated occupational therapists you will co-develop customers' reablement plans which may include supporting customers with daily living activities including washing, dressing, meal preparation and personal care. This is an opportunity to make a real difference to people's lives.

In addition, our new service is moving towards an integrated relationship with our health partners and we have designed a new discharge pathway that supports customers on their journey home from hospital in a seamless whole system approach called Home First Plus. This will see health and social care staff working together to achieve the best outcomes for the customer.

About you

If you have a caring attitude, a friendly professional approach and an ability to work with a diverse range of customers to achieve their goals then please consider a role in reablement. You may not have experience in a care setting but you will be supported through a comprehensive induction, training and mentoring programme, and will complete the care certificate.

This role involves shifts to meet the needs of the service which runs between 7am to 10pm 365 days a year and so there is a requirement to work on a rota that will cover morning, evenings, weekends and bank holidays. As travel across Wiltshire will be necessary you must have a full driving licence and access to a vehicle.

If required to work on a bank holiday, this is part of normal shift pattern and time off in lieu will be granted

An additional 10% of basic salary for those contracted to regularly work at least 10% of their weekly basic hours during late evenings (beyond 8pm) and/or Sundays eg if shift worked is 2 - 10 pm.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable adults, as an employee you will be expected to share this commitment.

Please do not submit an application if you have previously applied within the last 12 months.
