Agency/Bank support workers needed in the Ashford area to work exclusively with one client on an ongoing basis

Hays are looking for support workers who specialise or have experience working with adults with Learning Disabilities. We work with several different settings in Kent who are looking for flexible support workers.

We are currently working with a client who runs Residential homes where they provide individually focused residential care and support for young people and adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and associated social care needs. Each person is encouraged to take an active part in their life at the care home through residents' meetings and one-to-one time spent with the staff. Activities are planned through personal choice and can include individual and group pastimes including holidays and weekend breaks, as well as introductions into community-based activities such as colleges and day services.

Our client is currently experiencing an increase in their requirement for Agency staff. They currently have availability for full time hours which are usually across 3 long days.

Due to Infection control methods that are taking place across Adult Social Care settings we are looking for Support Workers who are happy to work exclusively with this service. This means not working in multiple settings at one time to help prevent the spread of infection. If you are looking for work on a flexible basis and can commit to one service for a period of time please get in touch with me ASAP and don't miss out on this opportunity as it is likely to lead onto long term work. Should the assignment be brought to an end we can then reassign you to another service.

To be considered for this role, you must:
  • Have a minimum of 6 months experience as a support worker in the last 2 years
  • Be flexible to travel - driving licence and own transport is preferable to get to shifts, but is not a necessity
  • Be flexible in your availability - this role is most suited to those who are available most days of the week
  • Have an enhanced DBS with subscription to the update service, this is preferable but not a necessity, if you do not have an enhanced DBS on the update service you will have to process a new one with Hays
