Further Information

This is Redcar and Cleveland. We are an ambitious council keen to build on our strong track record of innovation and partnership working, ensuring that we create a flourishing future for the borough and all of its residents. Key to this is a committed workforce who always gives their best. Offering a fast paced, progressive working environment, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is a great career move.

The Adults & Communities Directorate, consists of three strands, Adult Social Care, Community Development, and Public Health. Our aims are to continue to provide essential and highly valued services and to build capacity to enable local communities to make lasting change, improve quality of life, prosperity and the environment. As a directorate we lead on developing a culture of co-operation and co-production, respecting and nurturing the skills and talents of local people and enabling them to fulfil their potential.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the team at our new Intermediate Care centre. The centre will provide short term rehabilitation (for up to six weeks) which enables people to regain as much independence as possible in skills for daily living (personal care, meal prep, medication, mobility, use of equipment etc.).

The successful candidate will: hold a minimum of a level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care or equivalent; hold the HSC level 3 Medication Unit or have a commitment to achieve the unit; numeracy and literacy level two or equivalent; have experience of working in a care/health setting; have an understanding of the ethos of Reablement.

For further information contact Lisa Mussett on 07901 330045 or Mark Coates on 07881 518727.

The authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children/young people and vulnerable adults. All staff and volunteers must share this commitment and a Disclosure and Barring clearance will be sought.

The council is an accredited Investors in People employer at gold level and holds ambassador status for the North East Better Health at Work Award.
We offer very attractive terms and conditions of employment, including generous annual leave entitlement, flexible working hours (where appropriate), membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and access to numerous other salary sacrifice schemes and staff benefits/discounts, including a lease car scheme.

In the absence of any exceptional circumstances which render it necessary in the best interests of the Council to do so, the Council will generally not reengage any individual whom has previously been employed by the Council and left that employment with the benefit of a severance, early retirement or redundancy payment under voluntary arrangements. This principle will apply whether such re-engagement is to be under a contract of employment, contract of services or otherwise.
