Supported Living Worker 

It’s not just a job, it’s a life experience. Join them and help change lives. 

Our client is a national charity and a leading force in supporting people with learning disabilities and their families. A nationwide organisation, they support over 3,000 people through innovative, person-centred services with a strong focus on promoting independence. 

Everything they do focuses on helping the people they support live the best life possible and by working in partnership with them, and those that know them well, they create flexible services that meet their needs, whether they need a lot, or just occasional support. 

Position: Supported Living Worker 
Location: Cheshire & Merseyside 
Hours: 20 – 25 hours per week - part time 
Salary: £7.26 - £7.83 per hour (dependent on age, probation & qualifications) 

Closing date: 23 May 2018 
Interview date: 29 May 2018 

About the Role 

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

They provide 24/7 support to some 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. 

About You 

You don’t need experience of support work or any special qualifications for this job - you’ll get plenty of training along the way. It’s great if you already have experience of learning disabilities, autism or dementia, but this is by no means essential. What matters most is your positive attitude to life and your desire to support people to live their life with as much independence, choice, dignity and control as possible. 

The person you will be supporting has her own car which she uses to get out and about, so for this role it is essential that you hold a full, current EU/UK driving licence. The ideal candidate should also be passionate about animals, especially dogs. 

What they offer 

They offer a range of benefits and career development opportunities. They’ll give you a comprehensive induction, full training and support along the way. With Investors in People and Skills for Care accreditation they are committed to investing in their teams to ensure they have the specialist skills and expertise needed to support others to live the best life possible. 

NO AGENCIES PLEASE 

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.
