Are you an experienced support worker looking for a new start in a new service with a brand new team?  If so, we’d love to hear from you!

-------------------------------------------------------

About the person we support:

We have a gent 20s who we're supporting who very much enjoys his own space and spending time with family.

He has a learning disability, autism and we’re looking for highly motivated support workers to assist him to live independently as he transition into moving into his own home.

You will also need to provide emotional reassurance when experiencing behaviours of distress – full positive behaviour support training is provided but previous experience is essential.

What will I be doing? 

You will be supporting them to live their lives how they choose and to achieve their goals.
With the gents autism activities have to have a clear middle objective and an end one.
As well as supporting them to get involved in all the activities they enjoy, you’ll also be providing support with their personal care, medication, food shopping, and domestic tasks such as cooking, cleaning, and laundry

Shifts Patterns:

Day Shifts: 7am–10pm
Waking Night Shifts: 10pm–7am
This includes a combination of weekdays and weekends.
Rotas are provided at least 4 weeks in advance to support a healthy work life balance - something we're very passionate about!
