Are you looking to start a career in Adult Social Care? Or perhaps you are looking for a career change? We are looking to recruit Support Workers, living close to the Shrewsbury area of Shropshire – no experience is needed. You do not need to drive if you live in Shrewsbury, but if you live in any of the nearby areas then it is essential that you drive due to the rural locations.
We have various roles across Shropshire including Shrewsbury, Wem, Oswestry, Ellesmere and Ludlow. The role is ideal if you live in any of these locations or close by, and the locations are accessible via the A5, A495 and A49. They will always keep you as close to your local village as possible, but mileage is paid.
What does a Support Worker do?
A support worker does not care for someone but supports them and encourages them to be as independent as possible. For example:
- Accompanying an individual to activities or appointments.
- Supporting with daily living skills such as cooking and cleaning.
- Encouraging our individuals to reach their full potential.
- Some personal care may be involved which could include assisting with personal hygiene, washing toileting or bathing.
You would be working with Adults who have either an Acquired Brain Injury, Autism or complex needs. You will help them continue to do the things they love which may be outdoor activities, shopping or playing games consoles. You will have a positive personality and a strong desire to make a difference in a person’s life. You will be empowering people to make choices and live life to the full, this is a feeling like no other.
