RHONDDA CYNON TAF SUPPORT @ HOME SERVICE
Have you enjoyed supporting vulnerable people in your community during these very difficult times or have you discovered skills in caring for others in their own homes?
If so and you are looking for a new job role we can help you put the two together!
We have opportunities for the right people who share our values to join our existing teams of care workers, of whom we are immensely proud.
We are a large and expanding team but work to maintain a strong ethos of togetherness and each member of staff has access to support from an experienced and substantial team of managers, assessors and professional therapists in order to both learn the role, grow in confidence and enjoy a rewarding career in care.
You can meet some of the team here!
You will support rehabilitation programmes centred around the individual and deliver hands on care, reflecting the choices they make maximising the individual’s independence and quality of life. We offer this in a person’s own home or permanent place of residence, enabling individuals to do the things that are important to them and which are essential for their health and well-being.
The service operates 365 days a year and hours worked range between 7:30 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. our care staff work 5 days out of 7, rota’s are provided in advance and we endeavour to offer as much flexibility to meet your needs as possible.
We are interested in hearing from people who can be dedicated, reliable and willing to learn new skills, and have the ability to use their own initiative. Successful candidates will also be supported to register with Social Care Wales and the strong partnership we have with our dedicated in house training department ensures that learning support meets the needs of our staff on an individualised basis. We will also reimburse payment of registration fees promptly.
As you would expect staff care is central to our service and as such we are providing full necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and thorough risk assessments are carried out on the work environment in accordance with government guidelines.
RCT also provides a free dedicated Occupational Health Service providing a self-referral physiotherapy service as well as access to confidential counselling when things get tough personally or professionally.
You must have the ability to travel independently throughout the County Borough.
For an informal chat or simply to learn more about the role before you apply please contact Hayley Thorne or Su Lambert who will be pleased to talk to you on (01443) 425070.
