Support Workers (Waking Nights)
Location: Wrexham, LL12
Pay rate: £6.50 per hour (no qualifications) £7.00 per hour (qualifications)
Are you someone who cares about the interests and wellbeing of others? Do you have a positive ‘can do’ attitude?
Are you looking for a job where you can genuinely make a difference to someone’s life? Then welcome to your new career as a Support Worker!
As a Support Worker you will be working with a wide range of individuals with learning disabilities and other complex needs. You will be helping them to increase their independence and enable them to live independently within their own homes, through supporting them with their daily living skills and networks.
You do not necessarily have to have experience of working in the care industry but you must have a ‘can do’ attitude as the role will involve one to one support. If you have your NVQ2 in care all the better, but previous experience or qualifications are not essential. Our shift patterns are over a four week rota and you must be flexible to work waking nights.
You will be involved in maintaining safety in property during the night and offering personal care and reassurance. It will be through your support and help that they will be able to become more independent and have a better quality and enjoyable life.
So what are you waiting for?
