Further Information

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council prides itself on being a great place to work where staff are trusted, valued and supported to make a positive contribution at work.

The successful candidate(s) will be enthusiastic and flexible and able to offer emotional and social support and supervision to service users in accordance with the agreed Time-Out support plan to enable the primary carer to take time away from their caring responsibilities. You will have experience of working with a wide variety of people in a supporting capacity.

Due to the nature and flexibility of this role we would particularly welcome applications from current or previous informal carers.

Due to the requirement of frequent travel between venues across Stockton on Tees, the ability to travel independently throughout the Borough is essential.

We are looking for applicants who can demonstrate an adaptable and flexible approach, a positive attitude and an ability to work on their own initiative.

There isn't a specified number of posts as there is 26 hours available which can be allocated to the successful candidate(s). The hours of work are on a rota basis across Monday to Sunday from 8am to 11pm each day.

We offer an excellent total reward package including a competitive salary, generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement as well as access to a number of additional employee benefits and a wide range of learning and development opportunities.

If you would like an informal discussion about the post, please contact Marie Pickering, Time Out Coordinator on 01642 526543.

Previous applicants need not apply.
