CARE SUPPORT WORKERS Carers Trust Thames are looking for friendly, practical and reliable people to provide care in our clients’ homes and support them to get out and about. If you would like to make a difference to vulnerable or disabled people in your community, then we would love to hear from you. You should have a positive attitude, common sense and be committed to supporting others, plus be comfortable carrying out personal care. Good communication skills are essential as you will be dealing with a variety of age groups, disabilities and social and ethnic backgrounds. Pay ranges from £8.73 to £13.00 depending on qualifications and hours worked, plus mileage at 40p per mile, or public transport expenses. Previous care experience is desirable but not essential as we provide a full induction programme and shadow training. We require all applicants to work a minimum of 15 hours a week on average and you must have your own car/motorcycle. All applicants are subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and reference checks. *Pay rates include an allowance for time spent travelling between clients.
