Nottingham City Council is known for inclusivity and innovation, and we are continually working around the clock to deliver services for Nottingham’s citizens, visitors and investors.

JOB PURPOSE
 
The Temporary Emergency Support Team (TEST) is a specialist Homecare team that works across the city to provide support to citizens in their own homes. This is mostly acute, short-term care for citizens who have recently been discharged from Hospital or another service. The focus of the work done by TEST is to help citizens reintegrate back into their previous lives, whether that is socially, physically or emotionally.
The team encourages independence and choice for citizens, and control over the way their care is provided. This involves not only providing personalised care as directed in the citizen’s care plan, but also encouraging and enhancing the wellbeing of citizens through promotion of independence, early intervention, community support and friendships.
 
Essential Requirements
  1. Experience of undertaking personal care tasks (e.g. assisting with washing, bathing, dressing, feeding and using the toilet etc.) to a high standard in a respectful and caring manner;
  2. Ability to assess social care and health needs and develop, implement, maintain and update Person Centred Care Plans;
  3. Knowledge and understanding of the rights, needs and feelings of vulnerable adults from diverse social and cultural backgrounds;
  4. Ability to administer medication in line with departmental policies and procedures.
    
In your personal statement, make sure you consider the following points:
  • Describe how you might have cared for or provided support for someone in the past (this can include paid, voluntary or support for relatives);
  • Describe what kind of person you are and what qualities you have, that make you good at care work.
