Do you want to go to work every day knowing that you’re making a difference; knowing that you’re supporting others to live their lives the way they choose? It takes empathy, compassion, and commitment to be a Support Worker and if these are qualities you already have, then we’d love to hear from you!
We’re currently supporting a gentleman with a learning disability and forensic history in the Hessle area, and we’re looking for fun and friendly Support Workers with a great sense of humour to join his nights team on a full-time basis.
As a waking nights Support Worker your role is to encourage healthy sleep routines and provide any assistance that may be required during the night.
The gentleman you will be supporting likes rap music, rock oldies and he likes wearing designer clothing. He also likes spicy food and likes to cook from scratch every now and then. One of his goals is to learn Polish as he likes their culture and their food. His ideal Support Worker is someone who can do African braids and has some knowledge of computer games – could this be you?
As well as supporting this gentleman with his daily routines, you will be supporting him to; develop and understand his emotions, develop effective ways to communicate his needs and develop empathy for the needs of others.
This is an incredibly rewarding role, but it can also be challenging, and you will be required to draw on your compassion, resilience, and a non-judgemental attitude. You will need a sound understanding of risk management and the ability to maintain appropriate structures and boundaries to support this gentleman to meet his goals.
