Location: Sheerness, Kent
Deadline: Friday 14th May
We have an exciting full-time opportunity available for a support worker to provide care and/or support people with Learning Disabilities to develop life skills and become as independent as possible within their own homes.
We support people with a learning disability in our 4 bedded supported living property in Halfway in Sheerness as well as individuals based in the surrounding community.
Our clients will be supported with their daily living skills such as accessing the community, shopping, cooking, and budgeting. This will be achieved by following person-centred plans and the individual’s support plan.
Due to the nature of this role the successful candidate will preferably hold an NVQ 2 in Health and Social Care (or be willing to undertake one) and have experience in this field (though we would be happy to interview candidates with no experience who have an enthusiastic attitude and person-centred approach).
You will be working within a team to provide 24 hour cover, 7 days a week. Therefore you may be required to work evenings and weekends and also cover sleep-ins (paid at £70.47 per night).
We offer a full induction and training programme, salary progression, a generous holiday allowance, increasing with length of service, and sickness allowance as well as a pension scheme and mileage reimbursement scheme (40p per mile).
You can apply by sending your CV and covering letter to HR Manager, Alison Fengas (email@example.com).
The closing date for this role is Friday 14th May. However, we reserve the right to close the job immediately should we receive sufficient early applications. If you would like an informal chat about this post, please contact our HR Manager, Alison Fengas by calling 01843 808964 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we hold Disability Confident Leader status, all candidates with a disability meeting the minimum criteria of this role will be offered an interview on every occasion.
