Support Worker
Organisation Recruiting: 
The Avalon Group
Closing Date: 
Tuesday, 30 June, 2020
Salary: 
Starting at £8.80 per hour
Contract Type: 
Part-Time
Job Description: 

We are fast-tracking job applications for Support Workers, using video calling to carry out interviews in line with social distancing guidelines, and providing online training resources with the aim that you will be ready to start work within 14 days.

Here at The Avalon Group, we can only offer our high standards of care because of our committed, caring staff. But across our organisation we need more people like you to join us. We are therefore proud to support the national adult social care recruitment campaign “When you care, everyday makes a difference” – because it really does!

We are proud to pay above the National Minimum Wage with a rate of £8.80 per hour for customer contact time with enhancements of up to £10.15 per hour for waking night weekend working and generous sleepover rates.

This is a responsible yet hugely satisfying role. We are looking for compassionate and reliable people from all walks of life who will be able to uphold our values as they provide excellent support to our customers. No experience is needed as we will give you all the training and support you need, including opportunities to gain recognised qualifications in health and social care.

The role of a Support Worker is not a 9-5 job, however we appreciate that you have responsibilities and commitments, and we work with our staff to ensure rotas reflect individual needs wherever possible.

In addition, as an Avalon employee you will have access to the following benefits:

Award winning in-house training with opportunities to develop your career
24/7 Everyday Advice helpline, giving you impartial guidance regarding any personal matters or concerns you may have
On Call support 24 hours a day
Discounts at high street retailers and on gym memberships
Access to our Health Cash Plan
Paid travel expenses between consecutive sessions of support
£150 bonus for recommending a friend to become a support worker
Paid Enhanced Disclosure and Barring (DBS) Certificate (which you need to be able to work in social care)
