Vacancy Description

Are you looking for a rewarding career and do you have a natural desire to help improve people’s lives? START is looking for passionate people who want to join our fast paced Reablement team.

Reablement is a short term programme of intervention by skilled reablement support workers aimed at supporting an individual to achieve the maximum level of independence and reducing or eliminating the need for ongoing care.

The dedicated START team aims to enable people to gain or regain their confidence, stamina and ability and to develop the necessary skills to live independently especially after having experienced a health or social care crisis.

It is a service that aims to encourage people to “do things for themselves” rather than “having things done for them”.

As an Optalis carer, you will receive:

  • Excellent rates of pay - £9.69 per hour 
  • Minimum guaranteed hours
  • Paid travelling time in addition to 45p per mile mileage allowance
  • Paid holiday
  • Flexible shift patterns between the hours of 7.00am – 10.00pm
  • Extensive paid induction and training programme with career progression opportunities
  • flexible shifts patterns in line with availabilities and service requirements
  • Must have a full driving licence, and the use of a car.

Closing Date: Sunday 25 February 2018

Interview Date: Interviews can be arranged around candidate’s availability
