​Hours of work: 18 - 30 hours per week
Working Pattern: Part-time

Closing date: Sunday 29 August 2021

If you are patient, kind and caring you could make a positive difference as a support worker.

An amazing opportunity has arisen with JCR; Become an apprentice with us and earn up to £3,000 in performance related payments!

The Government has provided additional funding for a limited time to support apprentices in the workplace. In addition to a salary, as you pass 3 stages of your apprenticeship, you can be rewarded with an additional payment of £1,000 at each stage.

You will learn skills for life by becoming a JCR Support Worker Apprentice.

This role is in the Joint Community Rehabilitation (JCR) team, JCR is a partnership between East Sussex County Council and East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.

JCR supports people at home becoming independent following a short reablement programme. Reablement is about teaching people to learn the skills how to get back to a level of independence following a period of illness. We will train you on the job and it won’t cost you a penny. You will then receive a certificate as an Adult Care Worker when you complete your apprenticeship and there are lots of opportunities to progress. Once you pass your apprenticeship you will be in a permanent role as a JCR Support Worker.

You don’t need any experience, just a desire to make a difference and a full driving licence.
