Support Worker - Compstall - Drivers only
£16,250 pro-rata + excellent benefits
Do you know your Firmino from your De Bruyne, because we’re supporting a horse racing lover, a Liverpool fan and a man city fan and they need you!
These gentlemen are friends who are in their 40’s – 50’s and have a learning disability. These 3 live together in a service in Stockport. We are looking to grow our team of enthusiastic, fun honest and reliable support workers.
The people we support are looking to live an independent and happy life and they require your support. All 3 gentlemen use a wheelchair and require support around personal care, hoist support and accessing the community. This group love to do stuff and have very busy social lives, from going to the football, watching horse racing, going to the pub or accessing their day services. The access they need means we really need a driver to work for us and drive one of the 3 cars we have in the service.
Have a look at the additional information attached created by the people we support, this will give you an idea of what the people we support want from you.
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 some sleep in shifts (Payment for sleep ins is competitive and compliant with National Living Wage requirements). 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.
We have two positions available, one 20 hours per week and one 15 hours per week
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)
