15 jobs at Sheffield rehab centre 'ideal' for those made unemployed during coronavirus
A Sheffield injury rehabilitation centre has 15 vacancies it says are ideal for people who have lost jobs due to coronavirus.
STEPS Rehabilitation has permanent, temporary or flexible hours contracts in roles including rehabilitation assistants, nurses, physiotherapist, language and occupational therapists, assistant chef, caretaker and housekeeper.
The facility, based on Troutbeck Road, Millhouses, provides intensive rehabilitation for people recovering from brain, spine and multiple injuries.
Bosses say not all jobs require previous experience or medical qualifications and they are offering training to those interested in becoming a rehabilitation assistant.
A spokeswoman said: “STEPS is looking for those who are passionate about providing care and want to make a real difference to people’s lives. The centre is brimming with enthusiasm and positivity, even when times are tough.
“You will be working with a specialist team to empower patients to achieve their potential following complex trauma, brain injury, spinal injury and stroke.
“We are looking for HCPC therapists who usually provide community and outpatient services, or hospitality and caretaking staff who are no longer able to work due to café, restaurant and school closures.
“The jobs available may also suit university students looking for temporary work.”
STEPS opened in May 2017 by sisters and founding directors Jules Leahy and Toria Chan.
They say the decision to build and launch a rehabilitation centre was driven by a desire to help those with life-changing injuries and illness to achieve their full potential.
