Job Title: Care Needs Assessor

Reference Number: 009789

Area: London / Region: London

Basic Salary: £11.00 per hour


Job Description

Role: Care Needs Assessor (Part-time)

Location: London, extensive travel in the South East required

Salary: 20 hours per week

£11 per hour when assessing and £8.72 per hour when travelling 

At Agincare Live-in Care Services we work in partnership with Clinical Commissioning Groups, Local Authorities, families and next of kin to provide excellent levels of care to our clients across the UK.  We consistently achieve this through recruiting passionate and committed staff who share our values and understand the needs, concerns and expectations of clients and colleagues alike. 

This ongoing success has created a career opportunity for a part-time Care Needs Assessor covering our clients around the London and South East region.

The role of the Care Needs Assessor is to support the delivery of the highest quality care support services by carrying out a range of functions in the field.

You will be responsible for establishing a professional relationship with our clients, undertaking their first consultation, completing an initial assessment and compiling the associated first care plan. 

You will also be responsible for providing staff support to our wonderful Care Assistants on the front-line including supervision, instruction and staff support. 

You should expect to spend the majority of your working time in the community carrying out primary functions, but the role will typically also entail a certain amount of home-based administrative work

Job Requirements

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Minimum 2-3 years in working in Social Care;
  • the flexibility to travel extensively in the South East;
  • Previous experience as a Care Assistant;
  • A high degree of self-motivation;
  • Full, valid driving licence and access to a suitable vehicle.

You must have experience of care needs assessment, a proven track record in care and risk management, a sound knowledge of the health and social care regulatory framework and be passionate about person centred support.  We are looking for a confident and approachable people person, capable of developing positive relationships in the community with our clients and their families.  You will be supported and work very closely with our Customer Relations Team and our Registered Managers, so team working is a must. 

You will be working alongside numerous Healthcare Professionals and will be required to travel to our clients in their own homes across your defined region - so you will need your own transport and must be willing to travel some long distances when required.  This role requires a balance between working in the field and working from home, so you will need to be flexible and organised.

In return, no two days will be the same and you will gain immense satisfaction from helping to ensure that our clients are comprehensively assessed and that their first contact with Agincare is a positive and rewarding one.
