Part Time / 30 Hours
Driver Is Essential
Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are members of the Great Places To Work programme 2019, 2020 & 2021.
Start your day knowing you'll make a difference - join our team of Support Workers in Gosport and create a positive difference that improves the life for the people we support.
The Dimensions team supports two ladies in the Gosport area to live in their own shared home and be an active part of the community in Gosport and surrounding area. They have one to one allocated hours throughout the day. We are looking for people who share our values and can support someone to have the life they want to live. You do not need experience as full training is given.
You will be part of a team that works flexibly on a rota supporting these two ladies who have been diagnosed with learning and physical disabilities in their own shared home. The ladies we support enjoy going out and about in the community, attending clubs, arts and crafts, and music sessions. They enjoy spending time with friends and family. They will need support with cooking, finances, cleaning and attending health appointments. They will also need support with personal care, medication administration and supporting the individuals to have as much independence as possible. They each lease an adapted vehicle so drivers are essential.
You will be working within an established fun team that requires flexibility on hours. The hours range from 07:00 -14:30, 14:30 – 22:00 and 08:00 – 16:30 .There is the requirement to work every other weekend.
Although we are looking for people to work 30 hours there is opportunity across the locality to pick up additional shifts if you choose. We are also looking for relief support workers to join our established team.
The Dimensions Approach to Support
Our unique “Activate” approach puts decision making closer to the people we support. It sets personalised and challenging goals with them, their families and you, their Support Worker - by teaching new skills and enabling people to try new experiences.
Research has proven that this progressive model is the best way to deliver measurable improvements in the quality of life for people - and you and your colleagues in their support teams. It achieves an increase in active support and meaningful activity for people, a reduction in challenging behaviour - and an increase in your own satisfaction, with over 60% of Support Workers reporting that the `Activate’ model has increased the quality of their working life.
Simply put, our ‘Activate’ approach offers you a better working life, with the satisfaction that you’ve changed someone’s life for the better, in a role where you can be the best that you can be.
