About The Role

We are currently seeking robust, caring, reliable and committed individuals to work in a supported living service. The role involves supporting a gentleman with learning disabilities and mental illness. This is to maintain his own tenancy and to continue to be involved in the community.

About You

As a Support Worker you should have a calm demeanour and self confident approach but must be able to be completely impartial at the same time.

You will need to be confident in your own abilities, upbeat, but understand the importance of firm boundaries and why these must be followed.

Socialising is an important part of this role and you must be able to visit places such as auction mart and be happy to discuss technology and machinery such as buses for example.

Ideally you will have a good range of experience  in supporting individuals with learning disabilities and mental illness.

  • Able to help manage some behaviours that may challenge the norm – we provide training and guidance to enable you to do this
  • Comfortable using basic IT systems that are required within the role - training can be offered to support this area

It is also important that you share our company values which are at the heart of everything we do and ensure that we deliver high quality, consistent care and support.

As part of the selection process you will have an opportunity to meet the people you will be supporting in their home environment. This will allow you to see first-hand their wonderful personalities and fully understand the level of care and support that is required.
