Are you ready to take step in your career?
We are recruiting for a Female Assistant Locality Manager in Christchurch and Kinson.

Dimensions has a 20-year track record of offering excellent training and progression to ambitious, hardworking care professionals who want to build a progressive career making a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable people.

If you share our values this is a superb opportunity to join us as an Assistant Locality Manager, providing day-to-day support to your Locality Manager, gaining expertise and experience both within the office and across a number of services.

Our service in Christchurch supports two ladies in their bungalow. One of the ladies has downs-syndrome as well as learning disabilities. She really enjoys socialising, drinking tea and coffee, having treats and has a real drive for enjoying her life and so she needs someone to support her to do this by taking her to the activities she enjoys, supporting her with personal care needs, getting dressed and supporting her to learn new skills. The other lady is non-verbal, has very limited mobility and requires a wheelchair / walking frame. This lady needs a lot of sensory stimulation in her life and so enjoys playing with sensory toys but also really enjoys going out to various activities such as sailing, swimming, and horse-carriage riding. 

The other service support an elderly male who is a very cheeky chappy. He enjoys spending time at home drinking tea and smoking as well as going out for drives and walks with staff who he knows well.
