Female Support Worker

Start your day knowing you’ll make a difference - we are looking for Female Support Workers to join our team of Support Workers in Redditch and create a positive difference that improves life for the people we support.

Dimensions are currently working in partnership with Bromford Housing in Redditch where we support 15 individuals to live independently in their own flats and we are now recruiting for Female Support Workers on a full-time, part-time and relief basis to join our team.

The Role will involve

  • Helping people to live the individual life they want
  • Helping people learn the skills they need to live the life they choose
  • Supporting people with their medication
  • Supporting with personal care
  • Encouraging, supporting and teaching to find opportunities in education, employment and leisure
  • Family and friends also play a big part in their lives, so support will also be required with maintaining these relationships
  • Support with attending health appointments and activities, so being a driver and preferably with access to a car is essential to this post

Whether you have worked in healthcare, mental health, autism, with challenging behaviour or maybe you have a background in retail, cleaning and coaching, this could be the career for you. Dimensions recruit against values and not previous experience.

As a valued support worker, you’ll be helping people you support to live the individual life they want, ensuring they have choice and control over the planning and delivery of their support. We are looking for ambitious individuals of a caring nature to work for an award winning company where we promote independence in a supportive environment.

Sharing in our Values

We pride ourselves on being a values based employer. That means we believe passionately in:

Ambition- helping people be the best they can be by:

  • Setting personalised and challenging goals.
  • Teaching new skills and encouraging new experiences.

Courage - being brave enough to make a difference, by:

  • Challenging what you feel is not in the best interest of the person you are supporting.
  • Championing what they want to achieve for themselves - and helping to make it happen.
  • Helping the people we support to explore new things - and supporting them to realise what they can achieve.
  • Giving confidence to people in reaching their goals and not being afraid of new challenges.
  • Inspiring innovation and supporting the courage to be creative.

Integrity - being honest and fair in all the things we do, by:

  • Communicating clearly - adapting what you say and how you say it, so that it’s meaningful for the person you’re supporting.
  • Exercising confidentiality when dealing with vulnerable adults - for example, when managing financial and personal details.

Partnership - working with other people to make a bigger difference, by:

  • Understanding the varying needs and requirements of people with disabilities.
  • Developing positive working relationships with those involved in Dimensions – including those we support, their families and carers, your internal colleagues and external agencies.
  • Working as part of a team.

Respect - treating everyone fairly and knowing that everyone’s voice is important, by:

  • Sharing our commitment to Equal Opportunities for all.
  • Treating all people with dignity and respect.

Those are the qualities that you’ll need to join the team - they’re beliefs shared by everyone who works with us.

If you think this is the right role for you, come and make a difference to people’s lives, every working day!
