If you're looking for job satisfaction with a company that will give you the support and training you need, then we might have just role for you! We recruit on values and transferrable skills, so you don't need experience or qualifications to start your career with us.  We have our own Training Academy that'll give you all the skills you'll need, including the opportunity to complete your SVQ Level 3.

#TeamBaxter in #Dumbarton is expanding and are now on the lookout for creative and caring individuals who can think on their feet and work well under pressure to join them on a permanent basis as Support Workers. We have 20 to 35 hour contracts available.

The Role

Baxter View is a fast-paced specialist housing support service for adults with Autism and other complex needs service. Our large team provides 1:1 support to empower individuals to make choices, promote their independence and live a valued life. There is never a dull moment at Baxter View, the people we support are very active and enjoy various activities, so we are looking for someone to take an active interest in their hobbies and work with them to achieve their goals.

You will be involved in supporting people in their day to day lives, including housework, personal care, making meals and attending appointments. As a Support Worker you’ll need to be empathetic to others and non-judgmental, supportive to colleagues and know how to have fun. Some of the people we support have their own mobility car so it would be great if you have a full UK, manual driving licence, however this isn't a deal breaker!
