    Do something rewarding

    Our client is one of the UK’s most trusted Supported Living companies. They support adults living with Learning/Physical Disabilities and Mental Health conditions to live independently in their own communities and lead fulfilled lives. After visiting this provider and meeting the CEO and Head of HR, I got a real sense of pride - not just regarding the people they support, but the positive difference they have made to the adults they support. The Chief Executive told me several 'Goosebumps' stories - one was particularly inspiring. One service user had been systematically failed by all previous placements - our client did not let them down. He has since gone on to thrive and flourish and is now so much happier and content!

    Supporting Someone

    No two days doing this job are the same. Your job will be key in encouraging their independence, boosting their self-confidence, and keeping them safe. You will assist individuals based on their individual need, assisting them with daily living skills, helping them in the community and doing the things they love which can range from the cinema, arts & crafts, sports, shopping and much more. You will be helping someone achieve a positive future, a feeling like no other.
