As and when required, flexible, zero hour contract.
We have positions available across Suffolk, so you can work in and cover your local area.

Home First, Adult and Community Services.

Home First are an in-house council service that provides countywide care and reablement support when needed.

Your role will be to provide temporary care to people who have been assessed by a social worker, until a permanent local care agency has been found to continue the support required.

The main aim is to help people regain and maintain their independence, allowing them to remain living in their own homes for longer.

To be a part of the bank, it is essential you hold a Care Certificate and Level 2 Health and Social Care qualification.

We offer you:

  • excellent rates of pay including enhanced rates for bank holidays
  • free induction training
  • free uniform and DBS (CRB) check
  • paid mileage (45p) and paid travel time
  • refer a friend bonus (T&Cs apply)
  • a mobile phone
  • a wide range of benefits including local authority pension, high street discounts and car lease scheme (T&Cs apply).

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but in this role you will need to operate across a wide and rural area, so you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.
