Support Worker - Warfield

We are looking for Support Workers in the Bracknell area with a flexible approach to shift patterns.

In order to be considered for this position candidates must hold a full UK drivers licence.

Dimensions are one of the country’s largest not-for-profit organisation supporting people with learning difficulties, autism, challenging behavior 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. You don’t need experience as full training is given and Dimensions offers fantastic staff benefits along with a comprehensive employee assistance programme. We offer a great team environment and competitive pay rates along with strong company values. You will be friendly and approachable and support individuals to have a great life with excellent outcomes.

This role will involve supporting 6 adults in a lovely home in Warfield who have varied disabilities including epilepsy and associated behaviours that can be described as challenging. The people we support also require full support with personal care and there are some aspects of manual handling. They love to get involved in all sorts of fun activities from going bowling, to the cinema, arts and crafts, baking and much more (at the present time all activities will adhere to Covid government guidance around travel and social distancing). It's important for us that our support workers have a proactive approach to engagement and social activities, coming up creative solutions and alternative offerings within the current climate.

Shift patterns – Early 7:30am – 3.00pm / Late 2:30pm – 10:00pm & every other weekend.

Nights are available – 10:00pm – 7.30 am

(Shift patterns can vary depending on the people we supports needs - if you are looking for flexible hours why not apply now?)
