Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home!

Do you want to use your life skills and experience to empower our vulnerable customers with learning and physical disabilities into greater independence?

Are you currently in typical care service role which you go door to door and where you are not paid for every hour you work or feel you have the time to deliver care you take pride in, or fancy a career change being a hero key worker?

If this sounds like you…then join our central resource team! We can’t wait to meet you!

Central Resource Team

You’ll be the “Swiss army knife” of carers as we provide independent living skills to a wide range of customers across our different services in the Tyneside and Northumberland area.

So, we are looking for someone as flexible as a slinky in their approach and availability. You will be based in the service for the full shift. This could be your foot in the door into the new market leaders of Health and Social care sector, with a chance to grow your career. Our team is used as a pipeline for talent within our area. You can be sure that if career progression is what you have in mind, with the support of our management team, you could join the 82% of our colleagues who have secured their ideal position within a service and a role that feels like home.

You will be a mobile worker in CQC services jumping day by day to a new service to cover annual leave. One day you could be working a day shift in one of our Independent Supported Living Services (typically 3 to 4 customers living in a shared property) supporting them in everyday living such as; attending college or cooking up a storm in the kitchen or their chosen social activities. You could also be in our more complex needs services where our care workers (known internally as Supported Living Worker) might be spending the day helping our customer with their personal care allowing them to live within the community (including medication or bathing) and ensuring their aspirations are achieved.

About our teams

You’ll join our outgoing team, full of diverse characters, who are all friendly and helpful with newbies. The Central Services team is led by Stacey, who has worked for Home Group since 2010 when she started as a Support Worker and took full advantage of all the training and experience that the company has to offer.

She is supported (and couldn’t do without) our Client Service Manager, Jodie who, as a former member of the CRT and brings a wealth of service knowledge to support the teams. The fabulous Nicole is our Resourcing Coordinator who will look after your shifts and rotas, she can be bribed with a good chocolate biscuit. And finally, Clare, our Business Administrator, who keeps the wheels turning.

Working hours

We need you to be super flexible because you could be working in anyone of our 10 services in the TN area, don’t worry our excellent rewards scheme means that you can get a travel pass for the Metro and buses via our salary sacrifice scheme.

As we’re asking you to be flexible for us, we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you! You will be working days, evenings, weekends and bank holidays. Although, you won’t have a fixed rota you will have a fixed 5 week rolling rest rota and you will be provided all shifts approximately a month in advance with every other weekend off.

About you

You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds. You will have the opportunity to work alongside our in house Occupational Therapists informing how we support our customers to be as independent as possible. You’ll play your part by assisting in the delivery of tasks that are based on our customers personal support plans, their needs and aspirations.

You will have some experience in safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality, support plans, alongside working collaboratively. We help change our customer’s lives for the better.

It would be amazing if you have worked in this type of environment before, however it’s your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are critical to make this role a success.

We can nurture your talent, just let us know in your cover letter why you have a passion for working here! Experience in providing physical assistance to help wash, (shower or bath) dress, toilet and other.
