Job reference: 002224
Closing date: 18/07/2022
Salary: £11.00 per hour
Employment type: Full-time or part-time
Are you a thoughtful, reflective person? Do your friends say you're warm, and a good listener? Then come and join us in a role that plays to your strengths.
You'll support three young men; Ben, Joe and Gary*, who live gloriously ordinary lives in Abingdon.
Ben has a great sense of humour and is full of chat and banter, although he needs some peace and quiet as well. He's a good swimmer and enjoys swimming with other people. He enjoys train travel, shopping and he’s a fast walker! Joe knows his own mind and how he wants to live his life, which includes a love of music. Gary is a beautiful, warm human being who loves horses, nature and art.
You don't need experience: we provide extensive free training. You'll receive a competitive salary of £11 per hour and a range of benefits including access to the valuable Blue Light discount card.
You can choose whether to work full-time or part-time, and you'll take your turn on a rota which includes days, evenings, weekends and bank holidays.
*Names changed for privacy
You don’t need any particular experience or qualifications. We sometimes find people with an interest in psychology do well in this role, or perhaps you're considering a specialist career supporting autistic people.
You will need a manual driving licence (the men have their own cars). You'll be a ‘people person’, creative, flexible and have bucket loads of initiative and great resilience.
