York Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Community Directorate are looking to recruit staff to support vulnerable adults in our communities surrounding York. Working as part of an established team, you will be helping individuals stay independent by receiving rehabilitation and care in their own home, rather than hospital or care facilities. Significant training and development opportunities will be available to all staff to broaden their skills, and to enable services to meet the needs of individuals.

As a Generic Support Worker you will be a member of a multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team, assisting qualified nursing and therapy staff, carrying out multi-disciplinary care plans to patients in their own homes, within the York locality. Our service aims to provide planned and time limited treatment, rehabilitation and care to patients in their own homes, maximizing independence, preventing unnecessary hospital admissions, and facilitating hospital discharges.

Suitable applicants are expected to have previous health/rehabilitation experience, perhaps as a Healthcare Assistant or Therapy Assistant, and must have excellent communication, organisational and IT skills. Further competency training and development is expected and will be supported by the team.

We provide a seven day service between the hours of 8am - 8pm. The successful candidate will take part in a rota that covers all hours of the service, however we do offer a flexible and varied shift pattern to staff.

The successful candidate must have the ability to transport themselves and equipment throughout the community over the course of a normal working day.
