Would you like to finish work each day knowing you have made a difference?
We are looking for a Support Worker to join our service in Street on a permanent basis.
Our service in Street is made up of three supported living houses and a small community service in close proximity where we support 13 people with a learning disability.
We have four lovely ladies that share a house that love being social and active, and going to the disco. They also love to have foot spa's, and have their nails done! We also have two gentlemen that we support who like to have their Support Workers listen to them and provide emotional support, and a family that we support with their independent living skills.
The best thing about this service is the variety in your day to day - the people that we support like to be supported in different ways.
It's really important that you are comfortable in providing personal care, as well as some light domestic support. Rest assured our award winning training will ensure that you are fully prepared to be the best Support Worker that you can be! Have a look at the additional information attached created by one of the people that we support from an existing service in Street.
This will give you an idea of what the people we support want from you.
As a support worker, flexibility is key for both yourself and for the service, as you may be required to work a variety of different shifts throughout the week, including mornings (ideal for you early risers!), evenings and sleep-
ins (Payment for sleep ins is competitive and compliant with National Living Wage requirements). The best thing about flexibility?
It's a two-way street. While we may require that you work a variety of shifts, we also understand that you’ll have your own requirements have you got commitments on a Thursday?
Not to worry, we can factor this in, as well as other requests (provided you give us enough notice) into our rotas.
You don't need previous experience! 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.
This position is based in Street.
An enhanced DBS will be required for each successful candidate (Paid for by Mencap, T&Cs apply)
