Driver not essential but desirable

We are recruiting for amazing Female Support Workers in Norwich. Whether you have experience or not, we will help support you to reach your full potential by providing you with all the necessary training, guidance and support you need to complete your care certificate and further qualifications.

We are supporting three women between the ages of 28-60 in their own chalet bungalow. One lady is independent and communicates very well and goes to work throughout the week. The other two women live downstairs and require 24/7 support. All aspects of personal care and manual handling (pushing a wheelchair and hand on hand support) will be involved in this role.

When able to resume, you will support them with going to play bingo, food shopping, to cafes & restaurants and general everyday tasks. They enjoy going to the seafronts, playing games and arts & crafts.

Shifts will consist of long days, earlies and lates. You will be required to work flexible including alternative weekends, occasional bank holidays. Shift patterns will be discussed at interview stage.

Being a driver with access to a car is desirable but not essential.

There may be the opportunity for full time (37.5 hours) per week contract working across two services. This will be discussed further at the shortlisting stage

"Gender is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010."

Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are members of the Great Places To Work programme 2019.

In response to the unprecedented events we are currently experiencing due to the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19, at this time we will be conducting our interviews via video calls.
