We are looking for an Independent Living Officer for our Harrogate and Knaresborough team who can provide a technology driven support service to older or vulnerable people living in the Harrogate District.  You will have your own regular clients either at a sheltered housing scheme or living in the community, provide cover for colleagues when needed, and be part of a rota providing a 24 hour emergency response service.  Your role may also include some housing management tasks, along with promoting and encouraging social activities and entertainment within the scheme.

 

Ideally you will have a customer service or care background which includes dealing with older people, and you must have a full driving licence and access to a vehicle you can use for work.

 

In return we can offer you the opportunity to work as part of a close-knit and dedicated team of staff, a monthly car allowance and mileage payments to cover your work-related travel costs, plus additional standby and callout payments for providing cover on the emergency rota. 

 

As you will have access to vulnerable adults you will need a Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service, the Council will issue the application form and pay the fee.
