Employment type: Part-time

Would you like to have a positive impact on someone's life? How about having some fun along the way? Come and join us to support four women who are learning to live more independently.

Female applicants only

You'll be a part-time Support Worker working up to 24 hours a week.

The ladies we support live in their own flats in Wrexham. They each have a learning disability. They enjoy swimming and walking, along with relaxing in the pub with a coke. Their hobbies including making jewellery, listening to music and improvising on the drums!

They need help with their communication so that they can be in control of their own lives. They are all very different and a lot of fun to support.

Our team says: the ladies all have a brilliant sense of humour, they are engaging, energetic and fun to be around

This is a place full of joy and we are looking for new people to join a very committed team.

We provide full free training including positive behaviour support and physical interventions in order to equip you to support them through periods where they may show behaviours of concern.

You'll take your turn on a shift rota which includes evenings, weekends and sleep-ins. 

About you

Although we welcome you if you've been a support worker or care assistant, experience isn’t necessary. If you have the right attitude, share our values and are willing to learn, you’re likely to be a great fit. We are looking for people who celebrate differences, and we strive to make all our staff feel included, valued and respected.

People who tend to do well in this service are fun and confident, positive and creative.

You MUST be a driver with a manual licence as you will need to drive service mobility vehicles when lockdown is relaxed

We are only able to accept female applicants for this role due to the operational needs of the service​​​​​​​.
