The Homecare Assessment and Reablement Team (HART) provides short term support to individuals across Leicestershire who have been in, or are at risk of being admitted to hospital.
 
Our team of support workers offer short term intensive packages of support, which is sometimes up to 6 weeks long and work with people to help them to get back to living as independently as possible.

Examples of support you may help with would be a range of social care tasks such as washing and dressing, showering, meal preparation and helping people engage in community activities. You will be able to motivate and inspire confidence to relearn or regain some of the skills for daily living that individuals may have been lost as a result of illness, accident or disability.

  • Stability in rota’s released weeks in advance - with two non-working days per week and alternate weekends off work
  • Full training Mandatory Training is provided which is aligned to care certificate.
  • Opportunities to develop your career – this could be both within the HART service but also other avenues within the local authority.
  • Above statutory annual leave entitlement of 24 days per year pro rata, increasing to 29 after 5 year’s continuous service (plus any bank holidays worked).
  • Access to the Local Government Pension which includes 22.39% employer contribution (with ill health insurance).
  • Access to Wider Wallets – provides you with easy access to your employee benefits as well as offering a wide range of local and national discounts shopping, eating out, travel, leisure and health clubs.
  • Salary - £18,426 - £18,795 (Pro-Rata) which equates to £9.54 - £9.74 per hour
 
Various hours available between 20 – 30 per week. Worked on a flexible basis.
 
If you are empathetic, reliable and keen to empower others to live independently then you would be a great match for our services, please contact Julie.Day@leics.gov.uk or telephone on 01163053078.
 
The role will be subject to an enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring service) check.
