Job Description

Role: Care & Support Worker

Location: Seamer

Pay Rate: £10.09 per hour

Hours: Flexible or 12 hour shifts available

Derwent Cottage is a residential service located in the Seamer area of Scarborough. Here we provide care and support to adults with a range of learning disabilities and complex needs.

In this diverse and varied role, you'll help people we support to develop their independent living skills and assist with everyday challenges such as personal care, meal preparation, housekeeping, medication and attending health appointments. Crucially, you will enable them to carry out tasks, chores, activities, and hobbies that most people take for granted.

Derwent Cottage is a beautiful Victorian building with large gardens set in rural surroundings. The site is rated "Excellent" by the CQC and has access to modern equipment and resources - it even includes an elevator between floors. The friendly and supportive team are always looking for ways to keep the residents engaged and part of the community, regularly organising fundraising events and team building activities.

For this role, we encourage candidates who are starting their careers in care or who are planning to progress in a clinical role and are looking to gain experience. Existing Support Workers are also welcome of course. Residents of Derwent Cottage have cases with high complexity, but not classed as challenging, so the work you do will offers diverse and valuable experience.

Voyage provide a fantastic training programme that will support you, alongside a great range of benefits including Blue Light Card membership, access to high street discounts, a refer-a-friend scheme, long-service awards, a salary during your training and induction, a pension scheme, life insurance, funded CPD and a nurses pin, alongside a fully paid DBS. We'll even pay for your travel on bus or train for your first three months.
