Job Summary and Duties We need dedicated Support Workers to work with adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs.
This is also a great opportunity for carers (HCAs) looking to work in a different setting.
Being a support worker means you are integral to the day to day lives of the people you support, helping them with various activities such as assistance with personal care, household chores, meal preparation, leisure activities, social inclusion and maintaining health and well-being.
Support work offers you a chance to make a genuine difference to people’s lives and no day will be the same! Skills and Experience You will need to be able to work flexibly across a 7
- day rota to include early mornings, evenings, bank holidays, weekends.
In addition, waking nights and sleep-ins.
This would be a great opportunity for an experienced Support Worker (HCA) who has previous experience supporting someone with learning disabilities and the challenges that may come with this.
Experience is desirable but not essential as we will consider a candidate with the Affinity Trust ethos, as we provide full training to people who haven’t worked within the industry before.
The position will mean no two days are the same, and whilst is it essential that you are assisting with daily activities our Support Workers will also be involved in community based activities and events.
The ideal candidate will be caring and compassionate with a natural joy for life; someone who can provide positive engagement to encourage independent living.
