Job Description: 

Avalon is still recruiting and we need you to join us!

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 “Care for Others. Make a Difference”.

To support our customers in our Skipton locality, we are looking for individuals who can commit to full, part time or casual hours (including evening and weekend work) on a rota basis so flexibility will be required.

In particular we are looking for people who could cover a shift between 7am and 9am working as a 2:1 support team with a customer in the Sutton in Craven area, so if this fits with your availability we would love to hear from you. Other hours would also be available in addition to this shift.

Being a car driver is essential due to the locations of the support.

The work is mainly in the areas of Skipton, Settle and Sutton-in-Craven with support times throughout the day, but there are no calls of less than an hour. The majority of our customers are those with a learning disability who require support with personal care, finance, shopping and accessing the community. Experience is preferred but not essential.

We are proud to pay above the National Minimum Wage with a rate of £9.00 per hour for customer contact time with enhancements of up to £10.21 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. We will give you all the training and support you need, including opportunities to gain recognised qualifications in health and social care.

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).

We strive to ensure equality of opportunity for all. We welcome applications from suitably skilled candidates regardless of ethnicity, gender, age, disability, sexuality or religion.
