Recruitment event for Reablement Support Workers

We are holding a Recruitment Day on Sunday 15 September at Goldington Day Centre, 10 Barkers Lane, Bedford MK41 9SJ

9am to 12 midday.

Please come along and find out more about Reablement and pick up an application form.

Reablement support workers

Salary: £18,065 - £18,426 pro rata per annum  

Hours: Various shifts available, 16, 20 and 25 hours per week (with the opportunity to work additional hours).

Contract: Permanent

Reference Number: P000837

Reablement is about giving people over the age of 18 the opportunity, motivation and confidence to relearn/regain some of the skills they may have lost as a consequence of poor health, disability/impairment or an accident, and to gain skills that will help them to maintain their independence. 

It’s about helping people to find new ways of doing things. We work with adults across Bedford Borough whose independence may be at risk if they do not receive this service from us.

Reablement Support Workers are required to provide 'hands-on’ personal care to service users and must be able to carry out physical care tasks, handling and moving techniques (experience of manual handling is preferred, but training will be given).

Reablement provides a temporary service and will be provided for up to a maximum of six weeks. The emphasis will be to encourage the individual ‘to do’ for themselves, not to ‘do to’ for them. Trained staff will work with individuals in their own home to ensure that they are supported and enabled to practice daily living skills safely. Reablement also facilitates safe and timely hospital discharges.

The Reablement Service is committed to developing a culture of promoting independence and has a strong teamwork ethic. This service runs between 7:30am and 10pm, 365 days a year.

Home carers

Salary: £18,065 - £18,426 pro rata per annum  

Hours: Various shifts available

Contract: Permanent

Reference Number: 0011799

We have opportunities for candidates to join our developing Community Homecare service to work closely with service users to maintain their independence in their homes. The Homecare service provides more long term, intensive support to people in their own homes.

We are looking for people who have an interest in working in the care industry who are self-motivated, enthusiastic and also eager to learn. An NVQ level 2 in Care would be preferable, but is not essential as we will provide full training.

Successful candidates will be provided with:

  • mandatory training
  • support and guidance from our committed, motivated, energetic and professional team coordinators
  • supervision
  • appraisal
  • ongoing continued professional development

You must have access to a car or means of mobility support, as you will need to travel to and from service users' homes within a given timescale, in accordance with the needs of the service. You will also be required to apply for an enhanced DBS check.
