Lead Support Worker (Waking Nights) - Home Group
Scarborough
Full time (37.5 hpw)
Salary: £20,100 - £23,500 + brilliant benefits


We’re putting the finishing touches to our brand new, extra care retirement community in the beautiful seaside town of Scarborough.  Opening in April 2020, we’ll be supporting older people aged 55+ with varying care and support needs to live independently in their own home.   

As Lead Night Support Worker (known internally by us as Lead Reablement Worker), you’ll be supporting our customers who have a range of support needs including frailty and dementia, helping them to regain or maintain their independence and live well in their own home by carrying out every day daily living activities by themselves.  

You will be part of a small night working team who will offer our customers a first point of call when needed. During your shift you’ll support with personal care (like bathing and issuing medication). You’ll also make sure all records are up to date, auditing customer files, safeguarding the building and carrying out some light cleaning duties. Some of our customers will have more complex needs and you’ll manage complex personal care including stoma and catheter care.  

We’ll be providing 24-hour support to our customers, so you’ll work on a rota basis, with shifts ranging between 8.30 pm to 8.30 am, taking your turn to work different days, weekends and bank holidays. We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but in return we’ll give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!  

To make sure our customers are well supported, it’s important that you have worked in a supported housing environment before, be willing to provide personal care and have an excellent understanding of safety, risk management CQC requirements and legislation in relation to personal care. You’ll have a great understanding of professional boundaries, safeguarding, case management and creating bespoke/personalised support plans.  Don’t worry, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll nurture your talent, help you understand how things work at Home Group and you’ll have a fantastic induction with ongoing learning and support! 

You will hold a minimum Level 2 Diploma in Care, if you also hold Level 3 in Adult Care then this would be the icing on the cake, but don’t worry if you don’t, as we’ll pay and support you to achieve this.  If you have also worked in an older persons or extra service setting before or have experience supporting customers through a reablement approach this is even more fantastic!  To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's really important that you are technologically savvy.
