Male Full and Part Time Support Workers - Tower Hamlets
£17,900 per annum + excellent benefits
We are looking to recruit a caring and enthusiastic male Support Worker to join our team, where we support individuals with a learning disability.
The people you will be supporting love a variety of activities including Swimming, Music, Dancing, Shopping, Baking, Cooking, Socialising, going on days out, cinema, being part of their community and can at times have a hectic schedule. All of the above play a significant part in their life.
As well as the team that support them, family members are very involved in support. Being social and having conversations about things that are of interest and daily life is something they truly value. However, crowded social settings are not fun and that is something that some of the people we support find difficult to manage.
Indoor activities include Music sessions, Cooking, Life Skills and Television. We support a variety of people from different cultures so it would be helpful to have some cooking skills and ideas in this area.
If you would like to help support these outgoing and sociable people, who have a wonderfully full and active life, please apply and tell us why you would be a fantastic addition to the team. We include the people that you will support during all of our selection process and we take a person centred approach to recruitment. You will need to be adaptable due to the complex needs of the service and the people we support.
We have a number of hours and work patterns available from relief positions, 16 to 20 hours per week and full time posts.
We would prefer to recruit people that are able and willing to drive the large cars owned by people we support. Our policy around driving the vehicles requires that applicants must be over the age of 25, have a full UK driving licence, and have at least two years experience driving in the UK.
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.
This post is exempt under the Equality Act 2010, Schedule 9, Part 1.
