Support Worker Carer (*Female): Fully employed positions

A Hertford family requires support and care for their 6 year old boy who has an acquired brain injury. There are three positions available working a combination of day and night shifts Monday to Sunday with flexible scheduling. Rates range from £15 to £17 per hour with holiday pay and time-and-a-half for bank holidays.
