Job description

Are you passionate about enhancing a child or young person’s everyday life?

Would you like to progress your career by working with children who require complex clinical care?

We are looking to recruit a team of Support Workers who have a genuine interest in working with children and young people, to support our young service users who have complex care needs.

Our service user is a lovely young boy who lives with his parents and siblings in Frinton-on-Sea.

We are looking for individuals who are looking for part time hours covering mornings and evenings throughout the week.

In the mornings (7am – 11am), you will carry out an effective handover with his overnight care team in advance of him waking. From here, you will then begin his daily routine.

During the evening (6pm – 9pm) you will begin his bedtime and settling down routine assisting with bathing, dressing for bed followed by either watching Disney films, listening to music, or reading stories.

You will also be fulfilling his sensory, play and social needs when required, this could be general play at home, walks to the park and accessing the community.

Our young service user is registered blind and unable to communicate verbally. He uses facial expressions and noises to make his team aware of his needs. It is important that you can interpret these forms of communication effectively to avoid him becoming distressed.

Our ideal applicant will be calm, patient, reassuring and able to give him the time he needs to communicate. It would also be advantageous to be living in the local area.

Drivers are preferred; however, this is not essential.

Essential Experience Required:

  • 6 months previous care experience 
  • Medication Administration 
  • Personal Care 
  • Moving and Handling 

Desirable Experience:

  • Knowledge of Epilepsy Care
  • Seizure Management
  • Gastrostomy Care (PEG Feeding)
  • Oral Suctioning

We have the following shifts available:

  • Mornings – 7am – 11am (Saturdays & Sundays)
  • Evenings – 6pm – 9pm (Thursday – Sunday)

This is a personally rewarding role where you can build on your clinical skills and experience, whilst delivering exceptional care and support to our service user and really making an impact on his day-to-day life.

Why work for Apollo Home Healthcare?

We specialise in the provision of highly complex clinical care services delivered in the homes of service users.

We are passionate about delivering the highest standard of care and we recognise that our Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Support Workers are integral to doing this. In return for your hard work and dedication you will receive:

  • Flexible hours to suit
  • Confirmed rotas
  • Excellent rates of pay
