Support Worker

We are looking for a reliable and caring person to support two gentlemen in the Kinson area.

One is a young and active gentleman with learning disabilities. This gentleman loves being out and about at any given opportunity, regardless of the weather. He can walk but due to being unsteady on his feet in the community he needs support with being pushed around in his wheelchair when he is out. He also has his own car and his favourite activity is to go for a drive in his car. He also enjoys many other activities such as trampolining and swimming. Due to his love for his car and the enjoyment he gets from being taken for drives in his car it is essential you hold a full EU/UK driving licence in order to be considered for this position.

Due to his profound learning disability, it is also really important for this gentleman to be supported to meet his basic needs, such as support with personal care, meal preparation, shopping and general household tasks. Although he is very active and chooses to go out often throughout the day, he is also a very kind and loving individual whose smile and laughter will light up a room.

This gentleman has one to one support 24 hours days so you will need to be relied upon to work alone and use your initiative to ensure he is supported well and his needs are met. Therefore we're looking for a dedicated support worker to cover early, late and sleep in shifts from full time, part time or relief. We offer fantastic benefits, training and a great team environment.

We are looking for people who share our values and can support this gentleman to have the life he wants to live. His family and friends play a big part in his life so we also require support with maintaining these relationships.

Dimensions are one of the country’s largest not-for-profit organisations supporting people with learning difficulties, autism, challenging behaviour and complex needs and we are driven by our values. People with learning disabilities and their families are at the heart of everything we do.
