Support Worker

We are looking for Support Workers in Trowbridge to cover various shifts from full time, to part time! We offer fantastic benefits, training and a great team environment.

We are looking for people who share our values and can support someone to have the life they want to live.

The gentlemen that live here both have their own lives where they attend various activities in the community and in their home. They have their own vehicles.

One of the gentlemen is a very happy man who enjoys other people's company and socialising. He loves being out and about and does enjoy a bit of people watching! He loves being involved in everything that is going on and is able to express his emotions well. He has 2:1 support, uses a wheelchair and has a specially fitted feeding tube.

The other gentleman that lives here has a love for Zumba and enjoys cooking. He is happy and likes being busy so he has a wealth of activities that he likes to do. He also likes other people's company and getting out into the community. He has epilepsy but this doesn't stop him from doing what he wants to do!

You will receive full training and shadow shifts so that you are able to support both these gentleman well. We also offer a range of further training and qualifications. The early shift starts at 7am and the late shift finishes at 10pm. There are also two waking night members of staff in the service overnight.

Being a driver is desirable however not essential. You will get paid monthly on 25th of every month. In this service and surrounding services, there will be an opportunity to pick up overtime shifts should you wish to.
