What a heart warming feeling it is to bring a smile to another's face. But do you know what lasts longer than a smile? The feeling of supporting and empowering people with learning disabilities and autism to live a life that makes sense to them.
Seeing the difference that YOU can make. Now that IS rewarding….
We are seeking experienced and non experienced Support Workers
We're looking for a support worker to join our very small and friendly residential home where you will be supporting three people aged 23-30.
You will be supporting with a range of activities from the everyday living needs and ‘must dos’ (such as assisting with medications, supporting with attending health and medical appointments, personal care and PBS support), through to the lighter side of life doing things like supporting individuals going to the cinema, taking a walk to the local shops to get magazines, swimming, helping to cook delicious healthy meals and getting involved with arts and crafts.
You'll also be supporting our adults with personal development through taking part in our highly praised training program.
This role is 37.5 hours per week working on a rota that consists of shifts, including weekends and bank holidays, with sleeps at the service.
About youExperience isn’t always necessary. If you have the right attitude, good customer service skills, 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.
You must be a driver with a manual licence, as you will be driving service vehicles.
