At Agincare Live-in Care Services we work in partnership with Care 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 that share our values and understand the needs, concerns and expectations of clients and colleagues alike.  This ongoing success has created further opportunity to recruit an additional Field Care Supervisor to the Agincare family.

The role of the Field Care Supervisor is to support the delivery of the highest quality care support services by carrying out a range of functions in the field, including the assessment and review of individual services and the practical supervision, instruction and support of care workers. Field care supervisors can expect to spend the majority of their working time in the community carrying out their primary functions, but their role will typically also entail a certain amount of office-based administrative work.

As a Field care Supervisor your role will include the following duties:

• Work with care coordinators to support the planning of realistic, effective care worker rotas;
• Carry out regular reviews of individual services and risk assessments;
• Participate as required in multi-disciplinary review of service users’ needs.
• Shadow new care workers in the field to ensure their competence;
• Carry out the on-site observation and evaluation of care worker practice as part of routine supervision, in response to particular performance concerns, or as otherwise directed;
• Provide ad hoc support and instruction to care workers in the field, including in an emergency.
• Promote a safe working environment and safe systems of work;
• Understand and follow hazard and accident reporting procedures;
• Be alert to any changes in service users’ condition and circumstances and act appropriately when these change;
• Share On-Call duties.
