Making a difference to someone’s life is so rewarding; it takes a special kind of person to be able to offer support daily.

We have a new part-time, weekends-only Care & Support Worker round available in Barrow. This role can be permanent or alternate weekends. Own transport is required.

This role would suit a caring, enthusiastic and compassionate individual to join our fabulous team of carers, who provide support to individuals in their own home. If you enjoy brightening up someone’s day and feel you can make a difference, why not apply?

  • Excellent rates of pay including paid travel time

Sundays 7:00am – 1:30pm and 3:30pm – 10:00pm

The role of our Support Workers involves spending time with people that require support and helping them with little tasks that promote their independence and help to enrich their lives, such as: personal care, meal preparation, medication prompts, companionship and accessing the community (for example helping with shopping, attending local events, visiting a garden centre, accompanying them on a walk).

Experience is not essential as full, paid training will be given. Our in-house training programme covers a range of topics applicable for the role, in addition to job shadowing with one of our staff members and enrolment onto the Care Certificate scheme with on-going support and training.
