Support Worker Female

If you've always wanted a job that offers more personal fulfilment; if you'd like more support in achieving your professional goals, if you're wanting to work with an organisation where you'll feel genuinely valued for doing what you love (to care!) and where you'll be actively encouraged to excel, then look no further than becoming our newest Support Worker based in Swansea where a richly rewarding role awaits.

As our newest full-time, Female Support Worker, you'll be assisting your new colleagues to support three young ladies living in Swansea. Theirs is a quiet home, and whilst each lady has their own ambitions, dreams, and hobbies, they all enjoy sensory activities, being out and about in nature, going away on day trips (they really love the zoo!), and getting to spend time with their loved ones.

The ladies do have access to their own mobility vehicles, so it's essential you hold a driver's license as they'd love it if you could take them out and about more often.  

It's also important to note that each lady we support has complex health needs (including epilepsy) and requires assistance with PEG feeding. Therefore, there is a requirement to respectfully provide personal care as and when required. 

Your primary responsibilities will be to:

  • Empower and encourage the ladies we support to live their best lives - the lives that they choose to live. You'll achieve this by being actively and enthusiastically involved in every aspect of their day-to-day lives. 
  • Respectfully provide personal care, prompting and assistance with PEG feeding.
  • Administer medications 
  • Help safeguard the people we support ensuring that they are always happy, comfortable and in a safe and sanitary environment

For further information about the role; the shifts available, and for more details about the ladies we support, please contact Gemma Williams on gemma.williams1@dimensions-uk.org 

Please note, "Gender is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 of the Quality Act 2010".
