  • Would you like to have a job where you help people  to enjoy life again?
  • Do you have great communication skills?
  • Are you a team player with good decision-making skills, with a can-do attitude and a flexible approach?
  • Do you have a full driving licence, and access to a car?

If so we would love to talk to you about our reablement support worker roles. Having the right values and behaviours is more important than a social work qualification. We can support you to gain a qualification while doing the job.

Contact a personal recruitment consultant on 01223 475920, email [email protected] or apply online now .

Reablement helps people to leave hospital when they might otherwise be unable to. Each person may have been admitted for different reasons, but after discharge they need some help to get back on their feet.

Put simply, reablement helps people regain independence at home.

We can help many more people and really make a difference – but we need more reablement support workers.

You don’t need any specific experience to become a reablement worker, just the right attitudes and values. Reablement workers are calm and friendly problem-solvers who genuinely enjoy helping people.

What’s more, they get to see first-hand the difference they make to people’s lives.

Find out more about reablement.

Our reablement support workers motivate and inspire people to re-learn tasks and activities that are key to their quality of life.

Reablement support workers go out into the community. They usually see several service users each day. They help people to stay on track to stay independent.

Support usually lasts less than six weeks and helps people carry out tasks they identify as important. This may be cooking, getting down the steps into the garden, or dressing themselves. Each programme is tailored to the individual.

Unlike care - which treats individuals as passive recipients - reablement works in partnership with the individual.

If the service user needs further support afterwards, support outside of the reablement service will support their ongoing care needs.

We will support you to gain a Level 2 or 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care, but you can do these once you’re in the job if you don’t already have it.

We can also offer:

  • £8.90 - £10.65 per hour
  • enhanced pay rates for evenings, weekends and bank holidays - up to double time
  • flexible working with variable hours to suit your lifestyle, in your local area
  • generous mileage allowance of 45p a mile
  • up to 30 days annual leave entitlement, plus bank holidays (pro rata), subject to length of service
  • mobile phone
  • uniform
  • membership of the Local Government Pension scheme
  • ongoing continued professional development
  • lease car scheme (subject to terms and conditions)
