Are you an experienced Support Worker? Have you worked with Adults with physical and learning disabilities? We need you! We supply to over 20 small residential homes with service users with learning and/or physical disabilities. Due to the number of unfilled shifts we have each week we desperately need additional support workers to join Cream Health Care.

We pride ourselves in the standard of our work and the team of support workers we have around us. Do you want to work for an agency that goes out of its way to look after you? Do you have a passion to help others? And want flexible ongoing work? If so then you could be just what you're looking for.

Joining Cream Care you will work on night shifts within a variety of small residential homes in the Stoke on Trent area. Although our roles are advertised as 'temporary' our staff are long term full time (40+ hours) or long term up to 20 hours a week (to boost their income or around studies) - many of our staff have been working with us for over four years! We are seeking flexible staff able to commit to Cream on a long term basis. At Cream Care we look after our 'Cream Team' and provide you with support and mentoring.

The adult service users have learning disabilities/challenging behaviour or physical disabilities and you will have a minimum of six months experience with this type of service user. All the homes are friendly with a focus on the homes being the true homes of each service user. You will actively promote independence through your support. As you are supporting the residents you will not have break times taken out of your working day. Occasionally you will take a service out in the community for them to enjoy their own interests.

Working with Cream Care will give you flexibility as you choose the hours and days you work each week. You just let us know each week when you are available and we will work with you.

By joining Cream Care as a Support Worker you will be joining a family run business. Jenny, our boss established the agency 'Cream' over 40 years ago but Cream Care is Jenny's new baby - established in 2009. Over the past eight years we have grown by respecting and working with our health care professionals. You will be part of a team of the very best staff who work in the best residential homes - yes, we hand pick the homes we work with to ensure they welcome our amazing care staff.

You will be treated by our team at 'base' with respect. We will take care of you - if we don't take care of you then you won't take care of the residents you will be working with!

Once you are 'on board' as one of our flexible workers you will have the opportunity to work at a number of homes and you will then choose to work in the homes you thrive in. You will always receive feedback at the end of your first shift in a new home.

THE FIT

To fit with the role of Support Worker you will:

* Have a minimum of six months experience in the care sector - providing support to service users with learning disabilities/challenging behaviour or physical disabilities
* Have an enhanced DBS either with the update service or willing to pay GBP45 for your DBS. Don't worry we will encourage you to register with the update service once received.
* Have a passion to deliver great care and support.
* Dignity - a commitment that you will treat all service users with dignity and respect
* Cheerful - to wow the service users and keep them happy.
* Good spoken English - the service users love to chat and you will be reassuring them with little chats whilst encouraging them to carry out regular duties around the home
* Be willing to deliver personal care and have experience of using a hoist
* Record Keeping - you will keep all records up to date as you move from one client to another

THE GOOD STUFF

Cream Care will offer you:

* Weekly pay
* 28 days annual leave. You accrue this based on the hours you have worked
* Contract - you will be a 'temp'. Many of our staff have been with us for 5 years, some have taken (and been paid for) maternity leave, others have found other jobs - then returned to Cream Care
* Training - free on line training, including Medication training plus free annual training updates
* Support - our support staff call us their 'mentors'
* Induction - at the start of your first shift at a new home - yes, including fire procedures!

HOURS OF WORK

The shifts night shifts - some could be sleepovers - for which you would receive national living wage plus holiday - while you are asleep!

Come and join us - you won't be a name on a list. We carefully select staff for shifts based on

* Are you dependant on us to pay your rent/mortgage?
* Have you had the hours you need this week
* Do you love working at the home where the shift is
* Will the home jump for joy when we tell them it's you doing the shift

"I have worked for a number of recruitment companies. Cream Health and Social Care is outstanding and earns my excellent mark. They are highly professional, approachable and friendly. They see their employees not as numbers on their list but as team members. They are polite, exhibit superlative telephone manners. Clement, Cream Care Support Worker
