Wellbeing Teams do whatever it takes to support people to live well at home and be part of their community. This role is based in Ashton-in-Makerfield, Greater Manchester.

Wellbeing Team Assistants support the Wellbeing Teams by providing cover for leave and other times. We see it as an opportunity to ‘try before you buy’. To be a Wellbeing Worker you have to be skilled at delivering compassionate, person-centred and safe care, and self-management. The Wellbeing Team Assistant role is a way to deliver compassionate, person-centred and safe care, and understand the way we work. You may then decide that you want to try self-management too, and apply to become a Wellbeing Worker, or you may decide that staying as a Wellbeing Team Assistant suits you well. Most of our Wellbeing Team Assistants have a part-time job, or are students and do shifts with us to earn extra income. This role gives you the flexibility to work around other commitments, as it is a zero hours contract.

Please note that for this role you need to have a driving licence and access to a car.

The Wellbeing Team works in shifts. The shifts are around 6:30a.m.-2 p.m. and 4 p.m-10 p.m. (with some flexibility of up to an hour either side). We need Wellbeing Assistants to have availability for some of the early or the late shifts and at weekends. This could be that you are available for three or four shifts a week, and we may ask you to do two or three most weeks (or more if you have capacity).
