Do you love to soak up the sun? Do you enjoy getting involved in arts and crafts? If you answer yes to either of these questions then you`re going to get on so well with the people we support.

We support 12 people with a learning disability and live in a supported living service. We are looking to grow our team of dedicated, caring and enthusiastic support workers.

As a support worker you will be supporting people in different ways. The type of support you will provide would be around administering medication, helping with personal care and offering support with cooking healthy meals.

Being a support worker isn`t just about making day to day life it`s about having fun! Fun with this group could be anything from going bowling and scoring a strike, knitting blankets for the local dog shelter, having a chin wag or even going on holiday and soaking up some sun. Creating memories with these individuals is one of the rewarding parts of being a support worker!

Have a look at the additional information attached created by the people we support, there is also an additional 2 profiles from 2 of the individuals. This will give you an idea of what the people we support want from you.

Support workers must be flexible in the hours they can work, as support can be required 24 hours a day. You will work on a rota basis throughout the week, weekends and bank holidays with sleep-ins as well.

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 progression opportunities throughout your career with us.
