The Role

A Social Care Worker is an incredibly rewarding role that offers you the chance to make a real and lasting difference to people’s lives.

At Choice Care, you’ll work with vulnerable adults with learning disabilities, autism and mental health conditions, helping them to live safe, happy, independent lives.

It can be hard work, but helping amazing people to progress brings a unique sense of achievement.

What does a Night Social Care Worker do?

The support you provide will depend on the people you work with, within an agreed shift pattern, starting with a comprehensive handover from the day support team.
