Relief Support Worker - Female

£9.99 per hour

South Tyneside

Full UK driving licence is essential (own car is not required)

Are you looking for a career where you can make a real and meaningful difference to the lives of others but you’re not able to commit to a permanent role? Perhaps you’re considering a permanent role in the future but right now you need the flexibility to work around other commitments?

Joining as a Relief Support Worker at Dimensions is a fantastic career choice that allows you to do just that!

You’ll receive full training and support every step of the way, making us a fantastic employer if you’re looking for a career change, are re-entering the workforce after a break, or if you have some fantastic experience under your belt already and you’re looking for your next challenge – whatever your level of experience, we’d love to hear from you! 

Whilst you’re under no obligation to accept shifts, we do ask that you’re committed to supporting our permanent teams by working shifts where possible. Relief Support Workers are crucial members of the team that ensure consistent care across all services during busy periods, when permanent staff are unwell or on leave and they really do make the world of difference – seeing a friendly and familiar face is so important to the people we support when permanent team members aren’t available.

If this sounds like just the role you’re looking for, then why not apply now to join our fabulous relief team in South Tyneside:

  • Supporting 7 people (two ladies and five gentlemen) aged in their 20s to 50s
  • The people we support live across 5 houses in the post code areas NE33 and NE34
  • The people we support have autism, learning disabilities, down syndrome, physical disabilities, and some people can display behaviours that others may find challenging
  • The people we support enjoy a variety of activities such as football, amateur boxing, pub lunches, swimming, shopping, playing pool, going on day trips to a family caravan, watching Star Wars and listening to music
  • The people we support are independent when it comes to their personal care, although one lady with physical disabilities requires full support
  • You will support everyone with meal preparation, medication administration, grocery shopping, finances and household tasks including cooking, cleaning and laundry
  • The people we support all have their own Motability cars to support their independence so it's essential that you have a full UK driving licence in order to be considered for this role
  • Shifts include long days with sleepovers, short- and long-day shifts, and waking nights
  • There is free street parking available for staff cars and good public transport links to all five properties

The base pay rate for a relief worker in South Tyneside is £8.91 per hour but you will accrue annual leave as you work, so it works out to be £9.99 per hour.
