 The Government’s ‘Infection Control Fund’ (introduced as a result of the
Coronavirus) requires Care homes to restrict permanent and temporary staff to
working in only one care home, to help reduce the spread of the
Coronavirus.   As a result of this, if you already have another job
elsewhere (either in Care or another sector) and you wish to continue working
there alongside the Trust, unfortunately we would not be able to progress with
your application at this time. However, if you are happy to consider committing
to working for us exclusively until the restrictions are lifted we are happy to
discuss guaranteeing you the hours you will lose from not being able to work your
second job. Or once the restrictions are lifted, please do not hesitate to
re-apply for any of our roles that maybe of interest to you then.
