Your new company
You will be working in various social housing organisations around the Stoke-On-Trent and Staffordshire area.

You will be providing support to service users and assisting them with their daily living. You will be required to engage with the service users when needed and provide them with advice.

Ideally you will hold a relevant Health and Social Care qualification, or be willing to work towards this. As these organisations provide 24 hour support you will be expected to work shifts, these can be early, late, long days or waking nights. To succeed in this role you will need to ensure you are fully flexible.

What you'll get in return
You will be offered competitive rates of hourly pay and have the ability to work flexibly around existing commitments. You will be able to access free Professional Development Training including support enrolling in your QCF or NVQ Level 3, mandatory training and safeguarding. You will receive holiday pay and paid expenses.
