Why come to work for Dimensions in particular, when there are many other social care providers out there?  

  • We can offer great opportunities for career development and offer sector-leading training programmes and qualification opportunities.  
  • We are an inclusive employer, valuing the diversity of our workforce, being respectful of differences and making reasonable adjustments to ensure people reach their full potential.
  • We also have a great range of employee benefits, from our Rewarding Dimensions discount scheme and our comprehensive Employee Assistance Scheme, to childcare vouchers, a bike to work scheme and loans for commuter season tickets.

As a Support Worker, you’ll be helping people you support to live the individual life they want, ensuring they have choice and control over the planning and delivery of their support. No two days will be the same, you will enjoy variety and assist people in the following ways:

  • Helping people learn the skills they need to live the life they choose.
  • Co-producing and designing support in partnership with the people who are being supported, their families, and their support teams. This includes developing and delivering their support plan, and reviewing the support they receive against the Dimensions values.
  • You will help the people we support to shop for things they wish to buy including their clothes and food, and to prepare their meals as required.
  • Supporting people with their medication.
  • Helping, encouraging, supporting and teaching the people we support to do their housework, including cleaning and laundry.
  • Supporting and encouraging people to find opportunities in education, employment and leisure, and enable them to take part in these opportunities.
  • Supporting, encouraging and teaching people to maintain personal and intimate care as required, such as dressing themselves, showering/bathing, using the toilet, etc.

Be prepared to work flexibly. This could include working some weekends, waking nights or sleepins if required and bank holidays. This will be discussed with you during the interview process and you will be matched to people we support in line with hours and patterns of shifts you are able to work.
