Support Worker - Roche (Maternity Cover)
£17,550 per annum, pro rata + excellent benefits
We are currently looking for a dedicated support worker, to cover maternity leave, who will be based within our Supported Living Service in Roche where we support people with a learning disability.
Within this supported living service we support 4 individuals who need support throughout the day and night, which will include administering medication, assisting with moving, supporting them on days out and shopping, and support with their finances.
The people you will be supporting have complex health needs and are non verbal so rely very much on body language to an understanding from their support worker to communicate, so patience is essential.
We are looking for people with a good sense of humour who enjoy being part of a large team. We encourage team decision making and discourage lone decisions unless in an emergency.
Supporting someone with their daily life is not a 9-5 job. You will need to be able to work across a range of different days and shift patterns, including waking night shifts. We realise that your quality time is important too, so your rota is prepared well in advance – Got a request, something special going on? Your manager will certainly try to help you meet it.
One of the most amazing things about being a Support Worker is that anyone can do it! As long as you have a positive attitude and want to improve the lives of those with a learning disability, we will support you with progression opportunities throughout your career with us.
An enhanced DBS will be required for each successful candidate (Paid for by Mencap, T&Cs apply)
