Council needs 100 paid social care and support workers urgently – apply here

PUBLISHED

The County Council is urging local people to do their bit as it seeks to recruit a huge team of temporary social care and support workers to help battle the coronavirus crisis.

More than 100 social care and support workers are needed to work flexibly around the county providing vital social care to older and disabled people in a range of roles including:

– phoning vulnerable people
– visiting people at home
– providing personal care, such as help with getting dressed or washed
– ensuring that people are safe and well and have access to food and medication
– working in one of the Council’s residential care services
– providing care and support to people who are unable to remain at home.

Melanie Brooks, Corporate Director for Adult Social Care and Public Health at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “We know that many people in Nottinghamshire want to help during this crisis and this is the perfect opportunity to provide vital social care support where it is needed.

“These roles will make a real difference because they will ensure that there is care available to help support people who are leaving hospital. They will also allow carers to have an important break when they may otherwise be feeling overwhelmed.

“Successful candidates will be paid, so this could really suit someone who has unfortunately been forced to stop working because of the current situation. We don’t need people with experience and we will provide training.

“Please do your bit and help us to support vulnerable local people in this time of emergency.”
