Full Time Flexible Care Assistant / Full Time Flexible Support Worker

Are you an experienced support worker looking for a new challenge? Would you like to provide care in the client’s own home and offer a more personal service? If so, Active Assistance may have the role for you. We are looking for a full time flexible support worker for our client in Solihull. At Active Assistance your job title will be ‘Personal Assistant’ which is what sets us aside from other care companies. You will work with one client, providing tailored support which means you will get to know him and his needs very well.

Full Time Flexible Support Worker required in Solihull

Our client is a 20 year old male who has a spinal cord injury. He is paralysed from the neck down and therefore requires support with all aspects of daily life. He also has complex care needs such as a PEG, tracheostomy and ventilation. While experience with such equipment would be desirable it is not essential as full training is given. Our Care Service Managers will ensure you feel competent in your role. All shifts are provided on a 2:1 basis so you will always be working with another PA and so will need to be a good team player. Our client lives in his own home and relies on his team for all aspects of his care, which include anything from assisting him with his personal care to helping him engage in social activities. He leads a very social life, so in order to take him to college and social events you will be required to hold a full UK driving licence.

Why work for Active Assistance?

We provide our PA’s with free award winning training at one of our training venues around the country. You will receive on-going training and support from Clinical Managers and Head Office. At Active Assistance we like to recruit internally. Therefore, you will have the opportunity to progress your career with us, possibly becoming a Care Service Manager or part of the training team in the future. We also have a Refer a Friend scheme so if you like working for us and want others you know to get in on the action, you will be paid for spreading the word!

Active Assistance is an award winning care provider supporting individuals with complex and continuing health care needs. Our philosophy is based on the principle that each client is unique and our services provide tailored support covering complex clinical conditions.

Active Assistance is committed to safeguarding the welfare of vulnerable adults and children. All applicants must be willing to undergo the appropriate screening. This will include checks with past employers and an Enhanced Disclosure via the DBS.
