We're looking for people who share our values and want to support people to live the life they choose - if this is you, please apply today!

The people we support are at the heart of everything we do and we currently have some fantastic opportunities available to join our team in Darlington where you can make a meaningful contribution to the lives of others. We offer fantastic benefits, training and a great team environment. We have part-time contracts available from 16 - 32 hours per week and one full-time vacancy for 37.5 hours per week. 

The people we support have a range of interests from watching football, films, writing, music, dancing and arts and crafts to name a few. They're looking for people who are willing to get involved and show an interest in their hobbies and the activities they enjoy, and share in their enjoyment. 

On a day to day basis you will be providing support with personal care, mobility, meal preparation, domestic tasks and medication administration. The people you will be supporting have their own cars to aid their independence so it's important that you're able to, and feel comfortable, driving other people's cars. 

Shifts can vary depending on the changing needs of the people you’re supporting but we're currently looking for people to work a combination of day shifts and long shifts with sleepovers. Day shifts can vary from a few hours to a full day. Long shifts are more common and usually start at 9am or 10am and finish at the same time the following day with the sleep in shift included. Rotas are provided 4 weeks in advance. 

If you have any further questions and would like to discuss the role in more detail, please call Clare on 07702 973 000.
