As a Support Worker you will be working with older people and people with physical disabilities. You will be providing care at home work, helping them to increase their independence and integration into the community, through supporting them with their daily living skills and networks.

No experience? That’s OK! We will provide you with full training and support to ensure you reach your full potential. The most important skills you can bring to us are initiative, patience, understanding, compassion and a genuine enthusiasm for wanting to help and support others.

Our shift patterns are over a seven day rota and you must be flexible to work mornings, afternoons, evenings, weekends, sleep-ins and bank holidays. Due to the nature of the role it is desirable candidates have a full clean driving licence and are over the age of 25 to be able to drive the mobility vehicle.

Day to day you will be involved in supporting people with their daily lives, which includes personal care. It may involve taking them to appointments, helping them with their budgets or shopping, taking them on holiday or helping them learn to cycle, swim or a number of other activities they may be interested in. 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.
