We are looking to recruit Adult Support Workers in various areas of the York area of North Yorkshire. You don’t need experience just a passion to Support someone with a Learning Disability to achieve their goals!

Do you believe that everyone should be themselves no matter what? 

That everyone should have the same opportunities in life and that a disability should not be a barrier? Your job as a support worker is to help make that happen for someone you support

What does a Support Worker do?

Amber is an example of one of Adults that you may support: - 

My name is Amber, and I live in a shared house with 3 of my good friends. We all get along and I love the times we share (although sometimes we do disagree!) I have autism and I really do struggle if my routine isn’t kept simple and structured and when I am on my own, I can get agitated and upset, this can lead me to make a loud humming noise. I have a Support Worker called Emily and she is a massive help to me. Without her I would always be late for college, I wouldn’t be able to have a nice warm breakfast, and I would forget to take my medication. I also wouldn’t be able to get out in the community swimming twice a week which is what I love. One day I would like to possibly get to the Olympics, that’s my dream. Emily is there for me when I’m sad or worried, she talks to me and explains things in a clearer way, so I can process what’s happening. Without her I wouldn’t be able to have independence in my own home, which is what life is all about isn’t it! 

What are the hours, salary and benefits? 

  • £8.72 per hour (Over 25), £8.20 per hour (Under 25)
  • Full and part time hours are available.
  • Full Time Shifts could include days, evenings, weekends and sleepovers.
  • Part Time Shifts days evenings and weekends only
