An expanding company that develops flexible long-term care, support and housing solutions for people with a Learning Disability is seeking a Support Worker based in Gloucester to join its team. You will receive many benefits such as - childcare vouchers, a pension scheme, health scheme, you will be paid to attend training, free DBS Check, chance to build a comprehensive training portfolio and be supported to learn and develop and will be paid annual leave based on the hours you work including overtime.

This company delivers person-centred support that enables adults who have experienced life changing events leading to conditions such as brain injury and spinal injury to lead full and independent lives. It also provides small registered care services across the country. Again, responding to the commissioner and individual need, it has developed services to support people who historically have challenging behaviour and who have previously been deemed as unable to live in the community; and so, had been placed in long-stay multi-occupancy settings.

Being a Support Worker at this company is more than a job; it is about making a REAL difference to someone's life. This satisfaction of helping others is second to none. This could be more than a job and be a lifelong career.

As the Support Worker, your duties will include:

- Supporting the individual to visit family and friends.
- Weekly shopping.
- Assisting with dressing and personal care.
- Administering medication to name but a few.

Previous experience is not necessary as we will give you all the training you need. You will need to have a caring and positive nature, be supportive, calm and tolerant, as the person you are supporting may at times be challenging, however, this is the disability and not the person; empathy is essential. If you have a nurturing nature with the desire to meet new people that will inspire you to grow as a person, this role is for you!

Full and part time positions are available which may include evenings, weekends, nights or split shifts.

In return, the Support Worker will receive a salary from GBP7.20 per hour.

The first stage of the application process is to apply online.
