Support in the workplace
As somebody combining a caring role with paid employment you are likely to need support in the workplace, at different times and on a number of different levels.
It may be that you need access to a telephone to check on the
person you care for, or to arrange leave to fit in with someone
coming out of hospital. The good news is that carers do have
statutory rights and more and more employers are coming to realise
the benefits of supporting carers.
As a major local employer, the council supports carers in the
workforce by promoting flexible working arrangement which allow
carers to remain in, or return to work. Get in touch for further
details and to see what vacancies are currently available.
