Do you want to make a difference?

This organisation was setup on the vision that we can do more to protect and help the most vulnerable in our society. Their aim is to promote the inclusion of all the young people they support ensuring they have equal access to opportunities to become as independent as possible and not letting any barrier prevent them from living life to the full. They offer in-house medical, occupational and nursing therapies for all to access.

As their Support Worker, your role will be pivotal in ensuring the safety and welfare of the young people in residence throughout the night. You will monitor residents with additional medical and health needs. You will also carry out some domestic duties such as cleaning, washing and ironing.

What experience & skills are required?

  • You will have experience working/living with children/young adults or have personal experience of working with people with learning disabilities;
  • You will ideally hold an NVQ level 2 in Health and Social Care. However, full training is provided so not essential;
  • You will also need to be a car driver due to the partly rural location.

This is not only a career but is so rewarding and something where you can make a difference every day. If you have a passion to work with young people and you believe every person deserves to be encouraged to be the best they can be, then we would love to hear from you.
