Support Worker – Frimley

Full-Time Positions Available

£11.89 per hour

Two gentlemen and three ladies who Dimensions support at their home in Frimley would like some new Support Workers to join the team who enable them to live an independent life.

The people we support who are aged in their 50’s-60’s, and have learning disabilities, are an outgoing group. They would be happy meet full-time Support Workers who would like to get involved in activities such as:

  • Helping them to and from day service
  • Going to the pub for lunch every Friday
  • Shopping trips for clothes and things to decorate their rooms
  • Refereeing darts matches (at home)
  • Helping out with puzzles and quizzes
  • Drawing
  • Taking care of the house cat

The people we support want you to know that not all of them use works to communicate but they have other ways of letting you know what they want. If you have not had to communicate in this way before, don’t worry. As Dimensions provide all Support Workers with full training.

The role will be a mixture of early (7.30-15.00) and late (14.30-22.00) shifts and Support Workers will need to do 1 sleep-in shift a week. Dimensions are pleased to offer a pay rate of £11.89 per hour for this role (sleep in shifts are paid at an allowance of £45 per shift).

As the people we support have access to a vehicle it would be desirable if Support Workers hold a full UK/EU driving license.

Support Workers may also have to assist with finances, meal preparation and assist the people we support with their personal care.

  • We offer 30 days annual leave pro rata with the option to buy and sell leave
