We are looking for a team of proactive Support Workers to join our brand new Supported Living Service in Hucknall.
Shifts will vary, depending on the day and whom you’ll be supporting but we require flexibility to cover three key shifts: 07:00 – 14:30, 14:30 – 22:00 and a Sleep-in/Waking Night shift which is 22:00 – 07:00. We also require flexibility to work at the weekends.
The people we will be supporting are a varied bunch with a number of different needs and interests. Some of the individuals will require support with relationships, living independently for the first time and being as active as possible – this won’t be a service where you’ll be sat still for long! Due to the active nature of the people we support, being a driver will be beneficial for the role.
Care needs of the service will vary; some individuals will require full support with Personal Care while other will require more emotional support and encouragement. Experience with Epilepsy/Cerebral Palsy would also be beneficial. Some of the people we support are also Non Verbal so it’ll be key to learn/know some different communication techniques. The role will also consist of the typical day to day support tasks, including household chores, administering medication and completing regular checks.
One of the most amazing things about being a Support Worker is that anyone can do it! As long as you have a positive attitude and want to improve the lives of those with a learning disability, we will support you with award winning training and progression opportunities throughout your career with us.
As well as knowing that what we do is making a positive difference to people’s lives, you will receive fair pay and have access to a wide range of rewards and benefits as one of our employees.
28 days holiday (including bank holidays) increasing to 35 days with long service plus the ability to buy up to another 10 days via our HolidayPlus scheme
