Support Worker- Letchworth, Bedfordshire

Full time/ Permanent role

£9.60 per hour 

Dimensions is a leading social care provider in England and Wales, supporting people with learning disabilities and autism

You will be supporting a gentleman who loves long walks, cinema and meals out. He will require support with preparing meals, housework, including cleaning and laundry, developing and understanding his emotions, developing effective ways to communicate his needs, developing empathy for the needs of others, understanding relationships and learning about and understanding his health needs.

We recruit based on values so whilst previous experience is always welcome, it’s certainly not essential as full specialist training and support will be provided. We just need to come with an open mind, shared values and an eagerness to learn.  

We’re looking for people with flexibility to work shifts across weekdays, weekends and a share of the bank holidays. At Dimensions, we value a health work / life balance so you will receive your rota at least 4 weeks in advance.   

About you

We believe anyone has the potential be a great support worker, no matter your background, as long as you share our values; respect, partnership, courage, ambition and integrity – that’s why we recruit based on values and not skills or experience.
