About the role:

As a Support Worker for our client you'll be supporting adults with learning disabilities to live the best life possible. In this role, everything you do will enable people to have choices about their own lives; creating flexible services that meet their needs and always looking for the best way of doing things.

You will be supporting people to:

- Build their confidence.
- Be more independent.
- Enable them to make as many choices as possible.
- Gain confidence to develop their interests.
- Achieve their personal goals.
- Feel secure in their surroundings.
- Reach their potential.

There's no such thing as a “typical day” for one of our client's 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.

Our client provides 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 our client supports 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 or autism, 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.

Ideally you will hold a full and current UK / EU driving licence due to the rural nature of the area.

What our client offers:

Our client offers 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 our client and help them change lives.

Strictly no agencies please.

You may have experience of the following: Support Worker, Care Worker, Care Assistant, Healthcare Worker, Healthcare Assistant, Community Support Worker, Disability, Disabilities, Care Staff, Charity, Charities, Not for Profit, NFP, Third Sector, etc.
