Experienced Support Worker, Flexible Hours, Bank. Bury

Unique Training Solutions
On-site
Bury Greater Manchester United Kingdom

Bury have over 55 Care and Support services that on a daily basis ensure our loved ones and those in our communities, remain living independent and fulfilling lives. The level of demand for care work is increasing as our population ages and the negative impacts of life on our health and wellbeing also increases. We want to ensure everyone that requires genuine support receives the best care possible in our area.

So have you thought about bank work? This is hourly based work that is 100% flexible around your schedule but fills the vital gaps in the care and support work our community needs. It means you control the hours you work and the type of service and care you would like to provide. You might want to juggle your expertise by splitting your experience across different types of adult care, or just squeeze in a few extra or even night shifts to cover the cost of Christmas.

We totally understand that not everyone can work full time and many people have lots of things in life that work has to fit around. We are also hoping that some people have a bit of extra time to give and would benefit or just like a secondary income.

Yes you might pay a bit more tax to start with, but the HMRC makes sure this all balances out over the year.

Working in Care and Support is tough. You are constantly mentally and physically supporting others with your compassion, but the work you do is so very valuable and to be able to do just that little bit more, or return to work offering your skills on your terms would be hugely beneficial to so many vulnerable people.
