Relief Support Worker - Chigwell
£8.33 per hour + excellent benefits
We have opportunities for Relief Support Workers to join us in our services in Chigwell and Loughton supporting adults with a learning disability.
As we provide a 24 hour service, shifts will include mornings, afternoons, evenings and sleep ins. Shifts will be on a rota basis and will be spread across weekdays, weekends and bank holidays. Flexibility is therefore important for us to meet the needs of the people we support.
The role of a Relief Support Worker is varied and fulfilling. As a Relief Support Worker you will provide as much or as little support required by the people we support to enable them to achieve the things that are important to them. Duties may include providing support with cooking, cleaning, attending health appointments, managing finances, personal care and going out into the community. The people we support enjoy going out to the seaside, shopping, bowling and swimming. Clear and confident communication skills are important as one of the people we support is non verbal ( training will be provided on ways to communicate). Some experience of mental health and mild challenging behaviours essential.
The ideal candidate will have a driving licence as you will be required to work in other local services also, so there will be plenty of variety.
By joining us you'll make new friends and feel inspired to reach your potential. We will ask a lot of you - but you will get back so much more. With us, it’s never ‘just a job’. In exchange for your help to achieve these core values we will ensure that you get the training and development that you deserve.
* An enhanced DBS will be required for each successful candidate ( paid for by Mencap T&Cs apply )
