The Role

The great thing about this job is no two days are ever the same.   You'll become part of a team who supports six individuals with various support needs to live in their own homes.  Their homes are all situated in the same housing support complex, so there will be no travel needed while on shift.

As a Support Worker, you’ll assist the individuals with all aspects of daily living including cooking, housework, shopping, medication and personal care.  You’ll also support them with their hobbies and interests too.  Your support will play a huge part in helping them to reach their goals and play an active part in their local community.  For these roles, we will need you to bring an understanding of the important of routines.

At Cornerstone, we don't recruit on experience and qualifications; we're more interested in what you as a person will bring to our team!  We'll pay you for your training and give you all the practical skills you'll need to build an amazing career within the Health & Social Care sector.  We'll even fund your SVQ qualification too!

All we’ll need you to bring is;​​​​

  • Honesty, reliability and trustworthiness
  • Good listening and communication skills
  • A caring attitude and approach
  • Confidence to go in the water as swimming is a regular activity
  • A positive approach to learning
  • Always seek to go above and beyond what's expected
  • Confidence in the use of computers.

Shift Patterns

As we're dedicated to providing around the clock support tailored to the needs of each individual, shift patterns will include early mornings, days, evenings, weekends and public holidays.

We’ll also have a specific Waking Nights team, so if you’re a night owl, then we’ve got just the role for you too!  If working a Waking Night, you will receive your usual hourly rate plus a nightly payment of £20 per waking night worked.

Have any questions?   If you'd like to find out more, please contact Neil Hart on 07973786420
