Brief description

About the role:

We are seeking proactive individuals to support a young woman with a brain injury in the Doncaster area. You will support her in her rehabilitation programme and increase her independence both at home and in the community. No personal care is required. This is a 24-hour support package, 7 days a week, inclusive of evenings and weekends.

Training and supervision will be given. Successful first stage candidates will be invited to complete a trial shadow shift with client and Team Leader.

About us:

JS Parker Ltd (JSP) provides an essential service to both adults and children who have suffered brain and spinal injury. Qualified staff assess clients’ needs and offer individually designed case management and rehabilitation programmes. The company was established in 1994 and is now a successful rehabilitation and case management consultancy, working in close co-operation with the legal profession. We now have five offices employing around 80 staff. We manage over 400 support workers and provide services to just under 400 clients nationally.

JSP is not an agency. Recruitment of staff for small, personalised care teams is part of our case management service and is undertaken on behalf of individuals using this service.
