Whilst your shifts will generally be set we are seeking applicants that can be flexible in order to cover for annual leave and absences.

The role includes providing support with all aspects of day to day living including moving and handling routines. Our client leads an active life and enjoys going out for meals, coffee, shopping and socialising with friends.  As you will be joining a well-established team – shadowing and training is provided.
