Age UK Northumberland is a leading provider of personal, social and domestic support for older people across Northumberland. We aim to provide high quality, person-centred services to older people, ensuring they receive the support they need to continue to live as independently as possible in their own homes.
We currently have full and part time opportunities and seek caring and professional people to work in our services across in Ashington, Bedlington, Blyth, Morpeth, and the surrounding areas in Northumberland.
You will be part of a team providing professional day-to-day and night-time care and support for older people with a variety of needs. Our Team Members are chosen for their caring and respectful approach to older people.
Previous experience of caring for older people is an advantage but full training is provided to every member of our team – what is important is that you have a caring disposition and a real desire to make a difference to peoples’ lives. We also offer guaranteed hours to our staff on successful completion of their probationary period.
The nature of this work means that applicants must be willing to routinely work outside normal office hours, including some early morning, evenings and weekends. We offer excellent training and continued development including the opportunity to study towards higher level full NVQ qualifications in Health and Social Care.
