Support Worker / Care Worker: (Charity / Learning Disabilities) 

It’s not just a job, it’s a life experience. Work with our client and change lives. 

Be a Support Worker and you’ll be supporting adults with learning disabilities to live the best life possible. 

This is a leading charity that supports over 2,500 people nationally. There’s no such thing as a “typical day” for one of their Support Workers. You never know what you might end up doing. You could be supporting someone to make their breakfast in the morning, go swimming or to a local cafe in the afternoon – or even helping them plan their wedding. 

Sometimes it’s challenging, but it’s always rewarding. You’ll go to work knowing that you’re making a positive difference to someone’s life. And you’ll be working in a team of skilled, dedicated colleagues who’ll support you all the way. 

You don’t need experience of support work or any special qualifications for this job; you’ll get plenty of training along the way. What matters most is your positive attitude to life and your desire to support people with learning disabilities. 

They currently have vacancies for Support Workers in their supported living services, based in the London Borough of Barnet. Various hours are available, working between 20-37.5hrs hours per week. You could be supporting a young person who has just moved out of the family home or someone with additional needs such as challenging behaviour or dementia. 

Position: Support Workers 
Location: London Borough of Barnet (EN5 5TH) 
Hours: Various - 20 to 37.5 hours per week 
Salary: £8.95 - £9.62 per hour (dependant on successful completion of probation) 
Closing date: Monday 25th September 2017 
Interview dates: TBC 

About the Role: 
As a Support Worker you’ll be supporting local adults with learning disabilities. In these roles, everything you do will enable people to have choices about their own lives, creating flexible services that meet people’s needs and always looking for the best way of doing things. Work with our client and change lives. 

About you: 
They  are looking for people with a positive attitude. What matters most is your desire to support adults with learning disabilities. 

It would help if you knew something about learning disabilities and autism – but this is by no means essential as they will give you a comprehensive induction, full training and support. Our client is committed to the Investors in People process and have excellent training programmes (with Skills for Care Accreditation). 

They provide 24/7 support to people, so this role would suit you if you like the idea of working shifts and hours that include some weekends, nights and Bank Holidays. You may also get the opportunity to accompany the people they support on holidays and attend training courses and other activities.

You may have experience of the following: Support Worker, Charity, Charities, Third Sector, Learning Disabilities, Social Care, Voluntary Sector, Mental Health Worker, Healthcare Assistant, Care Staff, Community Development, Care Worker, Vulnerable People, Social Worker, Not for Profit, NFP etc.
