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. 

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 birthday party or a family event. 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. 

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. To fulfil the Support Worker role, you need to be able to work flexibly throughout the week to meet the needs of the individuals you are supporting. 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. 

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. 

Join them and help them change lives.
