We are looking for some great new Support Workers to join our team who have the right values, behaviours and attitudes to be the difference. We have a full time role available - 37.5 hours per week.

Experience of care and support work is preferred but it`s more important you have the right values and behaviours. Our values are:

  • Putting our residents and service users first

  • Developing passionate and committed teams
  • Being cost effective without compromising standards or safety

We will give you all the training and support you need to do the role including a qualification in health and social care, if you don`t already have one.

If you share our values, we`d love you to work for us.

About the Role

You`ll be empowering our service users to lead the life they want and you`ll support them to get involved with the community and maintain relationships with their friends and families. They enjoy visiting the local cinema, attending church and taking part in activities at the local leisure centre

You`ll join a strong, supportive team who are great communicators and able to engage with our residents who are mainly nonverbal or who have limited verbal communication skills. As part of the role you will be required to provide personal care and support with eating and drinking. You will also be required to write support plans and undertake risk assessments. It is a challenging but rewarding role where you can really be the difference to someone`s life.
